UNDYED BABY ALPACA SCARF GREY MUNAY

Handwoven in Peru

Regular price CHF 121.35

Warm, elegant, soft and snuggly baby alpaca oversized scarf. Perfect for those chill nights of autumn or cold winter months. Handwoven in the Peruvian Andes by a community of master weavers from Puno-Peru, each scarf takes up to 4 days to be completed. Produced in low volumes batches and crafted from 100% baby alpaca wool, no dyes have been used in this scarf, as we opted to keep the alpaca's natural colours, making it a unique, one-off handmade piece.

A curious and interesting fact: The term "baby alpaca" wool refers to the wool fiber that comes from the first shearing of an alpaca, and not to the age of the animal itself. The first shearing is done when the alpaca reaches adulthood at the age of 3 years old. This makes baby alpaca fiber exceptionally fine and soft, making it a highly valued material for high-quality garments.

When I was little, and there was no power at night, my siblings and I would look at the starry sky. Inspired by my childhood and that starry sky, I decided to design this scarf.

The length of the scarf represents the Peruvian sky (long and wide), and the inlays of alpaca fiber represent the stars. The material used is baby alpaca wool because it is an exceptionally fine and soft fiber, just like the memories I have of that Andean starry sky.

Made of 100% Peruvian alpaca wool and handwoven by Alberto and the community of weavers in Puno-Peru. We strive to improve the life of the artisans and indigenous communities from Perú and empower them to change their local communities for the better. By working closely with them, they are able to provide for their families and their communities.

I hope that each Andina World piece adds warmth and beauty to your home and outfit for years to come and that you find a truly unique, one-of handmade piece.
