Alpaca feels soft and downy and very similar to cashmere, but the texture of the Liam Throw is much silkier, finer, and more delicate than most alpaca throws - definitely something you can really snuggle up with! It’s thin but not sheer and drapes like a shawl, however it’s as warm as much thicker wool throws, with improved breathability. This means no more overheating, just delicious comfort.
We love the multi-hued colors and subtle weave pattern in the Liam’s fabric and can feel its texture through the soft fuzz of this amazing throw blanket. Alpacas evolved in the Andes Mountains - know as one of the harshest and most volatile climates - causing the wool to adapt by creating microscopic air pockets - the ultimate insulation, to protect them - and you. Hand-loomed in the mountains by Fair-Trade Master Weavers, each throw takes several days to complete.
Exceptionally durable, this 4-Season throw is perfect for everyday use. Because alpaca has a minimal absorption rate, it won’t absorb moisture or odor and it naturally repels dust, therefor it needs cleaning less than other comparable throw blankets.
Why not add luxury to your living space, bedroom or guest room adding texture, softness and comfort or give it as a treasured gift?
Note: Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic, so this throw is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin.
Looking for a more traditional blanket? Check out our Cityscape throw with hand twisted fringe. Made in the same yarn and a precursor to the Liam.
Care - Never wash your alpaca throws - the spinning motion of a washing machine will destroy the intricate weave. Absorb any liquid spills with paper towels or a clean cloth. Dry cleaning is the best option for removing stains or occasional cleaning. Due to the unique composition of alpaca, it does not hold dust, moisture or odor, therefore it retains its freshness, needing minimal cleaning. Please dry clean or green dry clean only.
