Wool is a fiber obtained from sheep's hair. There are different types of wool depending on the breed of the sheep, the best quality being that of the merino sheep, it is a very soft, flexible, breathable and warm wool that preserves its color very well.
The Alpaca is native to the Andes, Peru. It is an exquisite fiber, with a series of characteristics that give it an exceptional quality, it is very soft, very warm, thermoregulatory, does not retain odors, and its structure without flakes hardly prevents it from cooling. The alpaca pieces provide a lot of heat and weigh little, they are very pleasant to wear.

Measurements: 53 cm x 203 cm. (Fringes included).
Warp / Weft Color: Multicolor base, woven in dark red.
Finishes: We have hand sewn a hemstitch at the beginning and end so that the fabric does not come apart and the fringes remain in place and separated. We have hand tucked the splicing threads into the selvages. Hand wash and steam iron for extra quality, softness and durability.

Laying: wrap a towel around the clothesline holding it with two clips and hang the piece vertically so that it is not marked and, if necessary, facilitates ironing.
Ironing: no special care is taken, in general the temperature indicated by your iron for linen and cotton. With linen, you can spray the fabric with water to make ironing easier.
Reusable box: We send you this shawl in its reusable brown and orange cardboard box, so you can store it and keep it impeccable, always ready to use.
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.
