Butterfly Wings. Collection. Hand-woven alpaca scarf on a loom
Butterfly wings collection, miniature jewels at night. of alpaca handwoven in loom.
This alpaca scarf is a classic, sober, elegant or informal depending on the combination. It´s soft and very pleasant feel, without being bulky. It is very warm due to the characteristics of alpaca fiber, which has a very high calorific capacity in relation to its weight, among others.
It combines with many styles and we can wear it in several ways. It fits very well with coats or jackets, its size, width and length, makes it very comfortable to wear, all winter. We have left the fringes short, gathered with the hand hemstitch that sets them and tidies, and gives them a look of simplicity and elegance.
For lovers of very warm, comfortable, timelessly combinable scarves and grey colours.
This scarf has been hand-woven using the taffeta technique. This technique gives the fabric flexibility and softness, giving a touch of elegance to the alpaca fabric. It is a medium, soft, warm and combinable fabric.
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.
