In 1836—more than 200 years after Spanish invaders brought Peruvian alpacas to Europe—an Englishman discovered how to weave the animal’s luxuriously smooth fiber into cloth by combining it with other fibers. Stronger and warmer than sheep’s wool, alpaca is naturally water- and sun-resistant and hypoallergenic. In this beautiful blend, burnt orange yarn seems to change color as it mixes with stripes from charcoal to light grey, creating a stunning effect. Expect compliments. 50% alpaca; 10% merino sheep’s wool, 32% rayon, 8% synthetic fiber. Exquisite work from master weavers in Killarney, County Kerry. 15"w x 86"l, plus 4" fringe.
