White with Greys and Hints of Blue (we call this one 'Winter in the Andes') Double Size Alpaca Blanket - South American Artisan Made. Condition is Brand New. See our other listings for more colours!
Our Woolly Llama brand blankets are the only ones that feature crochet edging all around instead of only an overlocked edge. Our double blankets come in an ever-changing range of plain and striped colour combinations. Each has a separate listing so feel free to check them out! Dimensions are approx 230cm x 170cm, meaning blankets will just hang over side of a double bed, or a great size for a king single. Plenty of our customers have also used these as snuggle blankets on their lounge! A lovely soft alpaca blend blanket, these blankets are nice & warm. Blankets are hand-picked by us, not third parties, in Ecuador, then sent to the US. Hence your blanket will be securely sent from the US which will be fast - not with unreliable South American postal services!
*All blankets, ponchos and shawls are approx. 60% alpaca on a 40% acrylic (orlon) base. This makes the blanket stronger and durable. If you are after a 100% alpaca blanket (which are a lot more expensive due to longer and more intricate production processes - as well as obviously the higher alpaca content), I recommend either a Peruvian- or Australian-made blanket.
Washing instructions included on the Woolly Llama label on blanket (cold machine wash on hand cycle with shampoo instead of detergent - no wool wash!) ALL alpaca blankets - no matter where you buy - will shed a little alpaca fibre, which is normal, and if preferred a gentle wash will settle this down. Alpaca is a hollow fibre meaning it will keep you warm in winter and cool in summer.
All blankets are light weight: This doesn't affect warmth, but if you live in a particularly cold climate (like Siberia or Iceland maybe!) you might need more than one blanket. If you are after a thicker alpaca blanket, we also offer amazing Queen size options that feature mountain & alpaca designs - all with crochet edging which is standard for all our blankets - so please check out our store.
We work directly with indigenous artisan weavers in Ecuador to produce the best quality blankets. We collaborate on colours and designs and our blankets are the only ones that feature crochet edging all around, giving them the finish they deserve, instead of just an overlocked edge. We believe in fair trade and always pay what is asked, which is a fair price - and never bargain down. Blankets, throws, ponchos, scarves etc are all made in family workshops on looms and machinery that are about 80 years old. Families specialize in a particular item, and hence Woolly Llama works with three different extended families to source our products, each deservedly proud of their product, and also their culture/heritage it represents.
*International buyers please note: We are delighted to send our products all over the world, thank you for your interest! Just a note to let you know (but you probably are already aware of it) that import tax/charges may apply to your purchase which will be at your expense. It's not common, but it may happen
