Once reserved only for Royalty and Nobility, Alpaca fibers are one of the world’s rarest and finest animal fibers available. Alpacas develop a single coat which lacks the “guard hairs” normally found on wool and other animal fibers. Because of this, Alpaca fibers are unbelievably lightweight and soft resulting in baby blankets that are as smooth as silk, softer and lighter than lambswool baby blankets, and yet warmer than wool. The perfect combination for snuggling baby and a far superior blanket to traditional wool baby blankets that can feel rough to the touch.
All of our blankets are 100% Alpaca with no synthetic materials and are handmade on handlooms from the 19th century. They are also hand finished with excellent individual artisan craftsmanship and attention to detail. With nothing but quality craftsmanship from start to finish, one cannot find a finer, more luxurious baby blankie.
Not only is the craftsmanship amazing, but they are also hypoallergenic and will cause no irritation on baby’s skin which is a common complaint with wool baby blankets. Alpaca fibers are naturally hypoallergenic and the Alpaca feed on a diet of natural grass with absolutely no chemicals. Only organic dyes are used, when necessary, to color the blankets and there are no synthetic fibers or materials used in the blanket that might cause an allergic reaction. A mother can rest well knowing her baby is sleeping with the most luxurious hypoallergenic baby blanket available.
Baby blankets made from Alpaca fibers are more than just a luxury baby gift, they are an investment that will last. Because of the durability of the alpaca fibers, alpaca blankets last forever and can truly be an heirloom piece for the future. An Alpaca blanket bought for a baby born today will still be soft and beautiful for the next generation.
