YES, NATURAL THROW PILLOWS!
Add a touch of modern elegance with our Throw Pillow Covers. We stitch the covers with ethically sourced natural alpaca wool, a lavishly soft, renewable fiber known for its delicate, silky texture, breathability, and flame-resistant properties. The covers are never chemically dyed. We harness the naturally occurring hues of alpaca fiber to create stunning Earth tones and patterns.
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’s lightweight, temperature- and moisture-regulating, flame-resistant, breathable, and antimicrobial. It isn’t itchy and it’s hypoallergenic. Once reserved for Incan royalty, alpaca wool is now one of the world's most sought-after fibers.
Our Throw Pillow Covers come in distinct Earth tone colors and patterns. The fibers in our covers 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.
ETHICALLY SOURCED & SUSTAINABLE
About 80 percent of the world’s alpaca live in the Peruvian Andes. We source the fiber for our Throw Pillow Cover from Pacomarca — a sustainable alpaca network in Peru that ensures traceability. Farmers closely monitor the effect they have on water and land to mitigate impact. Our commitment to responsibly sourced materials is part of the broader environmental mission that drives Avocado, including our entire product line, from mattresses to blankets to bed frames and bedding.

A CARBON NEGATIVE PRODUCT
In 2019, Avocado Green became one of the first Climate Neutral Certified companies, effectively making our business carbon neutral. A year later, we took it a step further by going carbon negative — offsetting more carbon emissions than the company generates. Avocado works with Climate Neutral to reduce its emissions, then we measure and voluntarily offset more than 100% of the rest, from resource extraction to shipping, by supporting carbon offset projects through the Bonneville Environmental Foundation. Our offset projects help mitigate climate change and support innovation in addressing greenhouse gas emissions reductions. But we know offsets aren’t enough. That’s why we also advocate for legislation that will mitigate climate change and protect people and the planet.
