ALPACA SWEATERS AND SHAWLS
Our handmade baby Alpaca shawls and sweaters are in a class of their own. We only carry Designer Threads sweaters because they have been making the highest quality Alpaca sweaters for over 40 years. The incredible softness from the baby Alpaca is evident from the first time you feel your shawl. Baby Alpaca wool is the finest you can get. When an Alpaca is shaved for the first time, before it is 18 months old, it gives us the finest hair and makes the softest wool.
Alpaca itself is considered a luxury fiber. It is warmer than sheep's wool, it is hypoallergenic allowing people with sensitivity to wool to wear it. It has no lanolin and does not itch. Sounds great, doesn't it?
The beautiful colors were created with all-natural dyes. It is an art form that has been passed down from generation to generation in Peru.
Our Shawls are one size fits all. They are easy to wear and so comfortable. You will love the compliments you receive and the warmth it gives you.
