Silk and alpaca scarf handwoven in loom
This silk and alpaca scarf is sophisticated, elegant, timeless and combinable. It has the advantages of the two fibers, silk provides softness, is thermo-regulating and has a unique subtle shine and alpaca adds quality and warmth, being very pleasant to the touch, soft, flexible and slightly dense in body.
It is an exceptional scarf, extra soft and pleasant, light and warm at the same time. Very versatile and combinable. In natural tones, it looks good with many styles, with coats, jackets, shirts ... or with any other garment. It is very comfortable to wear, like a caress. We have twisted and knotted the fringes to always keep them in order and achieve a more elegant look.
For lovers of light, warm, soft, sophisticated and timeless scarves. And of natural tones.
We have woven this scarf by hand on our looms with a design of very marked geometric drawings, in a complex variation of very striking twill. By knitting it with fine alpaca, we have achieved a light fabric, although slightly dense that gives us an extra added warmth.
Silk is a sophisticated, soft, strong, durable fibre with a satin-like sheen that makes it totally unmistakable. It is breathable and has thermo-regulating properties that make it very suitable for keeping the skin warm, especially in the neck area, and its use is very versatile depending on how it is worn. Es a noble fiber of recognized quality. Our silk, has a slightly thicker yarn and this makes it cool or warm, depending on how you wear it and that has a different feel to the industrial.
The Alpaca is native to the Andes, Peru. It is an exquisite fibre, with a series of characteristics that give it exceptional quality, it is very soft, very warm, thermo-regulating, does not retain odours, and its structure with hardly any flakes means that it does not feel like it's slipping. The alpaca pieces bring a lot of heat and weigh little, they are very pleasant to wear.

COMMON FEATURES IN OUR SUSTAINABLE LUXURY FABRICS.
This piece is unique, designed and handwoven by us on a wooden loom, moved by our hands and feet, strand by strand handwoven with the best quality natural fiber, the best to wear in contact with your skin and taking care of all aspects, so that you have a piece, timeless, durable and of great quality.
All its finishes are made by hand. There are no knots in the warp (vertical threads) or weft (horizontal threads), the splices are inserted by hand into the selvages with a needle.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing and its final measurement, all the pieces handwoven on the artisanal loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers reposition themselves, then they do not shrink any more. And to finish we iron it by hand with steam to give it a better presentation and you can appreciate all its qualities.
