Description
This beautiful throw blanket is 100% Alpaca wool making it a warm and soft cosy blanket.

Ninety percent of the poorest indigenous people of Peru - more than 200000 families (1 million people) - are associated with alpacas and their products, 54 percent survive in the Andean Altiplano in extreme poverty. The lpaqueros are experts in animals husbandry, skilled spinners, weavers and knitters but are systematically unemployed or survive by being exposed to irregular, unfair, informal and underpaid activities. However, purchasing fair trade alpaca products helps organisations such as Allpa to improve the living standards of these marginalised producers.
