La Leña Alpaca Throw - Sand
Say hello to the coziest throw of them all. Hand-loomed from 100% baby alpaca, this neutral throw is as buttery-soft as it gets. The warm, light sand hue is perfectly neutral, the design is subtle, and the touch of fringe is just right. We wouldn’t blame you for wanting one for every room.
Crafted by master weavers in a quiet mountain village in the Peruvian Andes, each throw takes about a week to complete. All made exclusively in a fair trade environment.
Note: Alpaca wool is naturally hypoallergenic, so this throw is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin.
50"H x 70"W (+5" fringe)

I’ve never actually seen this throw but sent it to a friend for Christmas and she loved it. Said it was both lightweight and warm/cozy.
Love this throw. It isn’t that heavy but still surprisingly warm in my cold house. Have not had any issues with shedding.
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful! The only reason I’m giving it 4 stars is because I really like my throws to be butter soft all the way through. The ribbed pattern adds a bit of texture that I’m not crazy about. If I was using this throw for decorative purposes only, I would have 100% kept this. Either way it was gorgeous!
Thank you Gina for your note — it means the world. While we’re so happy to hear that you thought this throw was a beauty (we totally agree, BTW), we’re sorry to hear that you weren’t happy with the overall feel. We understand that cozy is a spectrum but apologize that the texture didn’t align with your expectations. If we can help with anything at all, including helping you choose another throw that’s a bit softer, please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’re happy to help in any way we can! Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
This is a handsome and elegant throw…high quality and soft.
I can not rave about this the enough!! It’s so ridiculously soft, light but warm, and both elegant and understated at the same time.
The material was soft, delicate and light, just as I had hoped. However, the alpaca hair sheds terribly. Within a few hours it was all over my house. It cling to every surface and floated through the air. Even after a few days and running it through the dryer it was still shedding. For this reason, it was unusable.
