Alpaca blankets from Ecuador

A beautiful alpaca wool blanket for the couch or bed, who wouldn't want that? They are warm, beautifully finished and made in Ecuador at a local community in Otavalo and imported directly from there. 

We have different types of plaid blankets. We have the native alpaca plaids , these are alpaca wool blankets with a South American print and lots of color. The names of these blankets are named after various volcanoes in Ecuador such as the Chimborazo and the Cotopaxi. The blankets are 195 cm wide and 235 cm long, perfect for snuggling all or together.

We also have mini alpaca throws of the native alpaca throws, these are 110 cm wide and 205 cm long.  

We also have plain plaids or alpaca wool. As you might expect, these blankets have no print but consist of 1 color. We have them in different bright colors such as turquoise, yellow, red, pink and orange, but also in dark and less bright colors such as mint green, dark blue and dark green. The blankets are 165 cm wide and 230 cm long, great to wrap around. 

The alpaca blankets are personally selected by Rebecca. A strict selection on quality takes place. Rebecca selects the products for her webshop based on honesty. Everything is purchased directly from the local communities. So when you buy an alpaca blanket you support the local population of Ecuador. Because the blankets are made in small numbers, there may be small differences in color, size or composition. But in general, these differences are so small that you can hardly see it.

Native alpaca plaid wool

The native alpaca blankets are made of 70% alpaca wool, 20% cotton & 10% acrylic. This blend of raw materials ensures that the material is strong, warm and soft! This keeps the blankets beautiful for a long time.

All colors and motifs of the blankets are inspired by the South American style. They are cheerful and easy to combine. There is something for everyone, whether you love red or blue or yellow or green, it doesn't matter, we have it all! We list all motifs below, please note (almost) all motifs are available in multiple colours.

Washing instructions

You would prefer to use your alpaca blanket 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, but that is of course not possible. At some point, it must or will be washed, but how do you do that best?

It is best not to wash the blankets but to let them air out. Alpaca wool is self-cleaning and by allowing the wool to air, any unpleasant odors will disappear. But if there really is a stain, it is wise to wash the blanket. You can do this in the washing machine on a wool or hand wash program, preferably no higher than 30 degrees. Use washing powder with a neutral pH value or wool detergent. You can use fabric softener, but it is not necessary.

If you do not trust to put the blanket in the washing machine, you can also wash your alpaca rug by hand. For a hand wash, use cold water and wool detergent. Use plenty of water and do not rub. You can use fabric softener for wool. Use your hands to remove the excess water from the blanket, but don't wring it. Rinse with cold water and pat the blanket with a dry towel until most of the water is gone. 

Drying wool

Finished washing and then what? It is very important to know that you should never hang up woolen products to dry! And never put in the dryer! Instead, try to squeeze out as much water as possible from the blanket and let it dry flat over a drying rack or towel. Ironing the blanket is not necessary.
