6 Reasons Why Alpaca Blankets And Throws Are Worth the Investment

I'm always looking for ways to add cozy comfort and style to a space. Alpaca blankets and throws are a wonderful way to make any room more inviting while also investing in quality materials that will last for years. Here are six reasons why these luxurious pieces are worth the investment:

1. Soft and Cozy Comfort - Alpaca blankets and throws are luxuriously soft and lightweight, making them perfect for snuggling up all year round.

The insulating properties of alpaca wool help to keep you warm during cold winter months and cool in the summer, providing all-season comfort. Alpaca blankets and throws are renowned for their softness - much softer than sheep's wool. This makes them an ideal choice for those who want to add a comforting layer of warmth to their bed or sofa.

The difference between a quality alpaca throw and a baby alpaca throw. While both are made of sumptuous alpaca fibers, baby alpaca throws are made from the first shearing of the alpaca and the fibers are finer and softer. This means that a baby alpaca throw is even more luxurious and indulgent, with a silky smooth texture that feels like a dream against your skin. The quality alpaca throws are also incredibly comfortable, but have a slightly coarser texture due to the fibers being harvested from older alpacas.

2. Durability - Unlike cotton or wool, alpaca fibers are not only naturally resistant to moths, but they’re also incredibly strong and can last many years with proper care.

Alpaca blankets and throws are incredibly durable, making them a great long-term investment for any home. The fibers of alpaca wool are naturally resistant to wear and tear, so you can expect your blanket or throw to last for years without needing repairs. Not only that, but alpaca doesn’t retain odors like some other fabrics, so it will stay looking and smelling fresh for longer.

Alpaca wool is moth-resistant, ensuring safe use. You may opt to store it in a ziplock bag with lavender sachet or cedar balls to keep moths away.

3. Hypoallergenic - Alpaca fibers are naturally hypoallergenic, making them ideal for people with allergies or sensitive skin.

Alpaca fibers are hypoallergenic, meaning they won’t irritate your skin or trigger allergies. This makes alpaca blankets and throws a great choice for allergy sufferers, as well as those with sensitive skin. Alpaca wool is also breathable and moisture-wicking, so it helps to regulate temperature and keep you cool in the summer.

4. Versatile - Alpaca blankets and throws come in a variety of colors, styles, and sizes so you can find the perfect one to match your decor or style preferences.

The beauty of alpaca is its versatility - you can use these blankets and throws to add a touch of luxury to any room in your home. Whether you’re looking for something to drape over the arm of your favorite chair or a blanket to keep you warm on cold nights, alpaca blankets and throws can do it all.

Our Alpaca throw blankets collection are available in many sizes such as king, queen and twin to fit your bed size.

5. Eco-Friendly - Alpaca wool is a sustainable natural fiber that's harvested from free-range animals in their native home of Peru. This means no harsh chemicals or pesticides.

Alpaca wool is a sustainable fiber that is both biodegradable and renewable, making it an eco-friendly choice for those who want to minimize their environmental footprint. Additionally, alpaca animals are not subject to mulesing, which makes them even more appealing as an eco-minded choice.

Our alpaca wool blankets are handmade pieces by Peruvian artisan farms.

6. Value for Money – Investing in an alpaca blanket will cost more upfront than a synthetic one but the quality of these natural fibers is worth it as they won't wear out quickly like cheaper alternatives would over time.

All in all, alpaca blankets and throws are an excellent investment for those looking to add both comfort and style to their homes.
