This silky soft blue throw - perfect for draping over a sofa or bed - is handcrafted using 100% Peruvian baby alpaca wool, which is one of the softest and finest natural fibres in the world.
Throws and cushions are a quick but effective way of brightening up a room and injecting some playful personality at the same time. Stylish and snug, this cute blue throw will look fab paired with some bright, boho chic cushions!
- Alpaca fibre is stronger than sheep's wool and more resistant to water, which makes it last wash after wash
Alpaca fibre is silky and soft. Its thickness ranges from
18 to 22 microns (cashmere is 19 microns) yet remains light and breathable
- Unlike sheep's wool, the alpaca fibre does not contain lanolin, which makes it hypoallergenic and suitable for sensitive
- Alpacas are free grazing animals bred naturally in the highlands of Peru without pesticides. They are not fed with hormones and do not receive chemicals
- Hand wash or dry clean due to the delicate nature of the throw
About the designer: Inka Fabric
Inka Fabric, founded by Liz and Adolfo, is a homeware brand that sells bright and beautiful Peruvian cushions, throws and frazadas that are handmade by the top artisans in Peru.
Peruvian expat Adolfo, who now lives in the UK, wanted to showcase the rich culture and heritage of his home country through textiles, which are all created using traditional techniques and craftsmanship passed down through the generations. Whilst Liz is British, she has travelled extensively with Adolfo through Latin America, so she has a strong understanding of the culture, landscape, gastronomy, and design.
Each individual product by Inka Fabric is unique and handmade. As Liz and Adolfo commented, “we don’t just sell fabrics, we sell a tradition, we sell history.”
