Merino wool and alpaca cushion handwoven in loom.
These cushions are soft, fluffy and very comfortable. Woven with natural merino wool and / or natural alpaca or merino wool and / or dyed alpaca, these cushions encourage us and help us to rest. Wool and alpaca keep your back warm and are very comforting. The nickel silver adds an extra quality and even more softness.
They are very versatile cushions that can be combined with many different decoration styles, for a sofa, an armchair, a bed ... They can be combined with the blankets.
We have woven these cushions by hand on our artisan looms, in a variant made of twill, to create a textured, striking and different fabric. We have sewn them by machine with overlock seams so that the fabric does not unravel. We have added zips so that they can be removed and washed comfortably and they are washed, ironed and brushed so that we can fully appreciate their softness.
The padding (which does not come into contact with the skin) is made of hollowed out polyester, it is lined, it also has a zipper and it is equally washable.
Wool is a fibre obtained from sheep's hair. There are different types of wool depending on the race of the sheep, the best quality being that of the Merino sheep. It is a very soft, flexible, breathable and warm wool that retains its colour very well.
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.

All its finishes are made by hand. It does not have knots in the warp (vertical threads) nor in the weft (horizontal threads). The weft splices are collected by hand in the selvedges with a needle, achieving a more complete and better quality finish.
We wash it by hand with natural soap, to verify the quality of the fiber, the dyeing if it has it and take its final measurement, something essential for us, all the pieces woven on the artisan loom shrink in their first wash because the fibers are repositioned (This is only done in the first wash, then they do not shrink any more). And then we iron it by hand with steam so that once it is finished, you can appreciate all its qualities.
