Natural Alpaca Rugs
These gorgeous alpaca rugs are so incredibly soft and snuggly they make winter wonderful! Considered one of the world’s finest fibres, alpaca is luxuriously silky and durable but surprisingly lightweight, thanks to its hollow core making it a natural insulator that keeps you warm without weighing you down.
Woven in the heart of the Andes Mountains by skilled artisans using age-old techniques, these rugs are fair trade. The Australian family behind Wilderness Cove discovered these textile craftspeople while working the simple life in Ecuador. Learning the weaving techniques and colour artistry they have empowered a disadvantaged village community to create a sustainable income while preserving their ancient artistry and culture.
With no lanolin, these rugs are hypoallergenic and repellent to dust mites. Comprising 80% alpaca, 10% cotton and 10% acrylic they are available in two sizes:
Blanket: 210cm x 170cm
Throw: 170cm x 112cm
Choose from grey marle, natural wheat, grey stripe, charcoal stripe and nomad grey stripe.
Hand woven in Equador.
