Soft Alpaca Wool Throw Blanket Dark Gray and Tan Plaid
The Buenos Aires collection is woven in pure Baby Alpaca and can be identified by its fine, soft, and airy fibers, which give it an irresistible softness, warmth, and flexibility. Alpaca is traditionally used to keep you warm in the cold and cool in the heat. Its delicate fibres give a distinct softness, which can be clearly felt in this throw.
The Buenos Aires represents a subdued, modern design with a checked pattern inspired by the natural color palette of the Alpaca. This take on design gives the series a classic and British look exactly like the capital of Argentina, which through time has been inspired by European traditions.
Silkeborg Uldspinderi was established in 1987. The company draws threads back to the 1940s, when the family's first wool spinning mill was founded. Since then, wool, and later alpaca has been the focus. Today, the company takes care of production in Peru and Lithuania.
Handling Alpaca fibers is a combination of artisanry and art which has been passed down from generation to generation. Long before the Inca Empire emerged, people and alpacas lived side by side. Today, they still do.
The Alpaca lives on the world’s roof in the Andes, where it adapts to temperatures fluctuating from -20 degrees Celsius to +30 degrees Celcius in less than 24 hours. The Alpaca’s fantastic fur isolates against both heat and cold.
