La Leña Alpaca Throw
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 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.

Never wash your alpaca throws or pillow covers - the spinning motion of a washing machine will destroy the delicate fibers. Absorb any liquid spills with paper towels or a clean cloth. Dry cleaning is the best option for removing stains or occasional cleaning.

Soft and cozy, the perfect throw to curl up under and read a good book!
This throw is so beautiful and warm. Leaning more on the heavy weight with thick weave f 100% alpaca fiber, this throw is buttery soft and a perfect blanket on the sofa on a cold winter night. I am very happy with this purchase, this is one of the best throw The Citizenry has offered.
Really happy with it. Its nice and big, long enough to cover the toes of a 6' guy. Its light weight actually adds to the cozy factor in the way it wraps and drapes. The woven construction is really interesting and well made. Stylish and subtle, looks great on some linen bedding.
I purchased the throw with the impression that it would be "Grey" as the product title depicts. However, the throw I received was certainly not "Grey" and was definitely much more cream in color with hints of "Grey". Careful when purchasing things on-line.
Hi Nick, Thank you for your note, although we’re sorry to hear that the color of the throw did not align with your expectations. Due to the handwoven nature of each throw, some color variations can occur from time to time. But the level of ‘variation’ you’ve experienced gives us pause. A member of our Client Experience Team will be reaching out to make this right and help facilitate a return. Hopefully we’ll be able to find a new throw for your space that’s the right shade of grey. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
I wanted to love this alpaca throw based on the luxuriously dreamy description and photos provided but alas when the item came I was greeted by what could easily be mistaken as a picnic blanket. Story of my life... With my online dating experience, you'd think at this point I'd be a little more discerning with things I find online but I digress. I'm having total buyer's remorse as I should have stuck with my gut instinct and gone with the Tesoro throw. The colors of the grey La Lena are more contrasting in real life, the grey seemed more muted online. The prominent contrasting lines somehow gives the throw a cheap gauze-y vibe. Not only was the throw extremely thin, but not as soft as I was anticipating. The grey fibers are very soft and what I had hoped the whole blanket would be but the beige fibers which account of the majority of the feel, is upsettingly rough. For the price of this blanket, I'm extremely underwhelmed. I will say that I gave an extra star based on the quickness that the item was processed and shipped. The throw also came in a nice dust bag which was a nice touch.
Thank you for your note Stephanie, but we’re so sorry to hear that our throw wasn’t what you were hoping for. We understand that texture, color, and coziness are subjective — however we would never want to catfish you into thinking you’re getting the blanket of your dreams, only to have a picnic blanket show up at your door. That’s certainly not the experience we’re going for! We want to redeem a tiny piece of your online experience for you and make this right. Please reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll facilitate a return of your blanket on us, and find you a new one that you’d definitely swipe right on. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
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.
