This is a brand new scarf, made of 100% baby alpaca yarn, one of the finest yarns in the world.
Baby Alpaca is a quality of Alpaca Fiber that has a thinner diameter and a longer length. These properties make Baby Alpaca a premium luxury fiber, which is soft, smooth and shiny. Please note that baby alpaca is a classification group, meaning it doesn’t always come from young alpacas. It could easily come from an adult animal with a very fine coat.
This unique superfine scarf is exquisitely soft and warm and features a nice solid color, exclusive from Alpaca Warehouse. This is a very nice, versatile and useful garment.
Alpaca is considered one of the worlds few luxury fibers due to its unique properties of softness, luster, lightness, durability, & warmth. No other animal fiber combines ALL of these properties.
Alpaca is also considered a specialty fiber as less alpaca fiber is produced each year than cashmere, angora rabbit, or mohair.
The shawl is just as pictured. Very delicate, warm and soft. The weave is pretty and the plum color is gorgeous. It's a nice weight for early spring.
