NATURAL ALPACA WOOL,
AN ELEGANT GIFT FROM THE ANDES
Alpaca wool is a natural wonder, sought after for its delicate texture and unparalleled performance. Avocado Alpaca Wool Blankets are lavishly soft and highly breathable. All colors are the result of the 22 naturally occurring hues of alpaca — without the use of chemical dyes. The result is a luxurious blanket designed with sustainability at the forefront.
Living in the harsh, wind-swept Andes at elevations above 12,000 feet, alpaca developed a highly sophisticated wool. It has the delicate texture of cashmere, the luster of silk, and the functionality of sheep’s wool. It is lightweight, temperature- and moisture-regulating, flame-resistant, and antimicrobial. It isn’t itchy and it’s hypoallergenic. Once reserved for Incan royalty, alpaca wool is now one of the most sought-after fibers in the world.
Avocado Alpaca throws are available in 12 distinct earth-tone colors and patterns. The fibers in our Alpaca Wool Blankets are naturally cleaned and dyed, without the use of harsh chemicals. In fact, because alpaca wool has a low grease content, fewer resources are needed to clean the fiber. Our plaid and ombre versions utilize “baby alpaca,” which refers to the finest, softest fabric on the animal (typically the chest), and not its age. Baby alpaca is a more sustainable luxury fiber than merino or cashmere.
