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.
70"L x 50"W (+1.5" Eyelash Fringe)

This is a beautiful, well made, and extremely soft blanket. It was the perfect gift for someone to cozy up under. The blanket came packaged in a great box, too!
Soft! Beautiful! Highly recommend! Great quality!!!!
This is the second Alpaca throw I've purchased from The Citizenry and it did not disappoint! It is so soft and surprisingly warm. Beautiful handwork and the coloring is neutral is goes with me anywhere around my apartment. Can't wait to expand my collection and curl up on the couch!
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
Great color choices, feels like cashmere, good quality and the size perfect as a throw on our living room sofa.
