Alessa Scarf
FOLKDAYS Nº 222

Artisan: Royal Knit

Country: Peru

Material: 100% baby alpaca wool

Size: 60cm x 180cm

This beautiful scarf is hand-woven from baby alpaca wool. The outstanding quality of alpaca is due to its fiber´s hollow core – resulting in an amazing insolation of heat while being incredibly light. It is hardly surprising that this astonishingly soft fabric was once reserved for Inca royalty. Alpaca fleece is harvested annually: The very first clip of around one year old alpacas is classified as baby alpaca wool. It is only the especially soft hair from the alpaca´s neck.
