Alpaca Wool Blanket - Seaside
Spend a night under the stars wrapped in one of our Alpaca Camp Blankets. These extremely soft and cozy blankets are responsibly made in a small facility in Lima, Peru using only the finest Alpaca wool. Known as the 'Gold of the Andes' and the 'Fibre of the Gods', Alpaca wool is softer and lighter than sheep's wool while also being warmer and more insulative due to it's unique hollow structure. So, whether it's draped over the couch, spread over the bed, or wrapped around you on a chilly camping morning, you're going to treasure this timeless blanket for years to come!

Rarer Than Cashmere, Warmer Than Wool
From high in the Peruvian Andes comes one of the finest luxury fibers in the world, baby alpaca. It’s incredibly soft, with a silk-smooth texture so fine it was once reserved for Inca royalty.
From the Andes to You
Cousin of the llama, alpacas graze at elevations of 10,000 to 14,000 feet on the harsh high plains of the Peruvian Andes. Their thick, sumptuous coats grow naturally in over 40 shades from ivory to black, and every grey and brown shade between.
Alpaca fiber is warmer and stronger than wool, and so resistant to saturation that it’s nearly water-repellent. It’s also free of the lanolin that is present in wool, making it hypoallergenic. Lighter shades of the fleece also take dyes beautifully, making it invaluable to our designers when they want to bring a vibrant sweater design to life.
