This incredible shawl was handmade from start to finish, using rare and valuable Suri alpaca fiber, which was selectively dyed with professional dyes, and then intricately woven by hand on a rigid heddle loom. The alpaca fibers give the shawl it’s incredible drape and softness, while also featuring all of the benefits of sustainable alpaca fiber: hypoallergenic, stain and moisture resistant, high performing, temperature regulating and durable. This shawl is light enough for a breezy summer day, and warm enough for a winters eve. Its versatile design can be worn draped simply over the shoulders, wrapped or tied around the front, or draped around the neck for a stylish cover. This heirloom quality, one of a kind shawl will be sure to have heads turn and jaws drop wherever it is worn, and will provide the wearer with a lifetime of ultimate comfort and beauty. Love and care can be seen in the perfectly imperfect hand woven texture. Gently hand wash and hang to dry. As with all hand made and natural items, variations in the fiber and color should not be seen as a flaw, rather as an enhancement to the uniqueness of the product.
