ALPACA THROW

Throw– 76″ long x 50″ wide, $195 Ten Thousand Villages Wilmington

Snuggle up under this warm yet lightweight alpaca/acrylic throw in golden autumn tones, just right for in-between seasons. Alpacas are raised in the foothills of the Andes, where their fleece is sheared and processed into the finest quality fiber for weaving. Warmer and finer than sheep’s wool, alpaca is also hypoallergenic because it does not contain lanolin. This blanket is handmade in Peru by artisans working with Allpa, an organization dedicated to artisan support and fair trade.
