ALPACA 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. 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.
About 80% of the world’s alpacas 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 their effect 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.
