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.
PAIR WITH OUR THROW PILLOW INSERT
Made for our GOTS certified (CU 863637) Organic Throw Pillow Insert, our pillow cover will instantly elevate the look and feel of your pillow and add a stylish element to any room in your home. Simply open the cover using the side zipper, slide it over the pillow insert, zip it back up, and give it a good fluff.
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.

PROJECT ZERO WASTE
We believe in a circular economy that accounts for the lifecycle of our products. That’s one reason we design our Alpaca Wool Throw Pillow Covers with natural, organic materials, which make it biodegradable. What’s more is that our GOTS certified factory, which we power entirely with renewable energy, is on its way toward a Zero-Waste certification, meaning we upcycle or recycle nearly all of our waste. The effort is consistent with our mission to set a new bar in environmental and social responsibility.
Our Alpaca Wool Throw Pillow Covers are covered by a 30-day return policy. Stained, unsanitary, or damaged throws are not eligible for return. The 30-day period begins after you receive your throw. If you decide that your Alpaca Wool Throw Pillow Cover isn't right for you, please contact us. There are no charges for restocking or return shipping. Once we confirm receipt, you’ll receive a full refund. The funds can only be returned to the original form of payment.
Exclusions: (1) Our serviceable area for complimentary returns is the 50 states of the United States only, including Alaska and Hawaii. If your throw pillow is located outside the USA, you are responsible for any costs associated with returning of the product. Avocado is not responsible for any costs incurred from repackaging and cannot reimburse customers for a replacement box or packaging services. (2) If you finance your purchase via Affirm, you’ll receive a full refund less any applicable financing fees paid to date directly via Affirm. (3) Products must be in a condition suitable for donation to be eligible for return (i.e., no stains, tears, excessive odors or soiling). We request photo(s) to confirm that your throw is in appropriate condition to be donated. Protect your purchase by following the care instructions. (4) Our return policy is limited to one of each applicable product type per household. If you exchange a product, it ends your trial period for that product type (mattress, topper, base, sheets, protectors, pads, throws) and no other sleep trials are eligible for your household in the future for that product type. (The only exception is pillows, for which two may be returned from a single order, since they are often bought in pairs.) We define this household-wide policy by your customer name, or shipping address, or billing method/account or billing address.
