In order to add work for the weaving coop that hand weaves our Alpaca shawls, we've asked them to weave some with dyed Alpaca. Take a look and let us know if this is of interest to you.
This shawl is handwoven from 100% Alpaca wool. The alpaca is a llama looking beast that has some super-soft wool type fur, and this shawl shows it off in all it's glory. Absolutely gorgeous. Just as soft as can be, not scratchy like regular sheep's wool. A natural creamy white, which can be dyed by our Jacquard Acid Dyes to any shade you desire. Just remember to treat these like wool when dyeing - if you throw them into a washing machine, you will get maximum shrinkage, felting and very tangled fringes! This is also another fair trade product from Bolivia, so the Bolivians get almost every penny of every purchase. Considering what handwoven wool shawls go for, this shawl, at these prices is a terrific deal.
The Colored Bolivian Handwoven Alpaca Shawl is 24" wide X 72" long with a 6.25" fringe. It makes for a very luxurious garment. We've said it before and we'll say it again, this shawl is absolutely gorgeous!
Made in: BOLIVIA (BO)
The heathered blue and fuschia colors are discontinued by the manufacturer. Those colors were no longer available. We are adding two new colors in their place; red and purple.
