Esperanza Alpaca Throw

Easy 30 Day Returns

Made from baby alpaca, a fiber so luxurious it was once reserved for Incan royalty, this blanket is as soft and cuddle-worthy as they come. Masterfully hand-loomed in a rich blend of rust, tan, and cream, it instantly adds warmth and a cozy feel anywhere it lands.

Handwoven by master weavers in a quiet mountain village in the Peruvian Andes, each throw takes up to a week to complete. All made exclusively in a fair trade environment.

Available as a Bed Blanket.

Note: Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic, so this throw is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin.

  • Throw: 50"W x 70"H with a 4cm eyelash fringe trim

  • 100% Baby Alpaca

  • Rust, sand, tan, camel

  • Peru

Like it so far.

Bought this one on sale and I am happy with it at that price. It wasn’t quite as thick or soft as I expected but I love the colours (well represented in their photos imo), and it seems well made. If only I had found these items while actually travelling there…Full price seems a bit steep for me, so I would take off half a star on that but otherwise it’s nice.

Very soft but sheds

The blanket is beautiful and super soft. And I love that it’s made by local craftsmen around the works. but have to take off one star because it sheds a lot on my clothes.


The Citizenry

Hi Nino, Thank you for your note - it means the world and helps us get better as we continue to grow. We're glad to hear your throw has been living up to expectations on the look and soft feel, but your comment on shedding does give us pause – we will be sure to pass along to our Design Team. While you can expect a bit of shedding from the alpaca wool, we can assure you that the natural quality of the fabric will keep it looking incredible for years to come. Again, thank you for your feedback. We hope we can continue to showcase the incredible work of our artisan partners to you in the future. Sincerely, The Citizenry Team

Not my first, not my last

My second alpaca throw from the citizenry and wont be my last. They are lightweight and drape so nicely over your sofa or over your body. Super soft, lovely colors, and I love the detail in the stitching.

The best blanket I've ever owned

Starting with the feel, this blanket is so soft and luxurious. Its thick enough to keep you warm but not hot, pretty much perfect temperature no matter what. The look is even better in person, the detailing in the stitching is beautiful. Will be ordering many more of the Alapaca throw options to replace all my current blankets.
