El Mar Alpaca Throw
Impeccably hand-loomed in a contrasting grid of rich navy, grey, and cream, this throw blanket is a modern classic. Made from baby alpaca, a fiber so luxurious it was once reserved for Inca royalty, this handsome blanket is extra soft and cuddly.
Handwoven by master artisans 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 hypoallergenic, so this throw is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin.

100% Baby Alpaca

Lovely but picked immediately
The thread Picked immediately. Lovely color and fabric. Overpriced for how fragile it was.
Hi Kimberly, Thanks for your note. We're so sorry to hear that that you aren't happy with the El Mar Throw. This beauty is handcrafted with 100% alpaca fiber, which does mean it's susceptible to snags from sharp objects (similar to a sweater). One trick I'd recommend is gently pulling the weave taut in the opposite direction of the snag to add tension back into the pulled fibers. If that doesn't resolve the issue, or if you'd prefer to exchange your throw, we're more than happy to help. Just reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll make things right. Thanks so much for making The Citizenry a part of your space - it means the world to us. Best, - The Citizenry Team
The amount of shedding is insane. There is alpaca fiber all over my clothes and bed.
Hi Anna, Thank you so much for taking the time to tell us about your experience — your feedback is invaluable to us. Our Alpaca throws are made from naturally spun fibers so some light shedding can occur with use. We recommend dry clean only for this beauty to help preserve the integrity of the Alpaca. Thank you again for your honest feedback — it makes us better and helps us to improve as we grow. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team
I have had this for three years. The amount of shedding is insane. There is alpaca fiber covering my clothes and bed.

Awesome Alpaca Throws
The blanket is great. I got it for my mom and I loved the way it looked so I also got one myself. They are super soft very pretty and can fit into any setting or style your trying to match them with. Love that Citizenry partnered with a small business in Peru to get this product. 10/10

Light weight but warm and soft. Pretty pattern.
