Description
This beautiful throw blanket is woven on a hand loom from Alpaca wool. In classic black and cream this throw will stand the test of time.

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 Alpaqueros 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.

Stunning
Received this unique throw blanket for Mother's Day. It looks and feels amazing and compliments my lounge-room beautifully. I loved reading about the Artisans who made this product which makes this an extra special gift.
