Handwoven in Peru by
A luxuriously soft alpaca throw with an unexpected pop of blush. Each stripe features a different loom technique, a shameless display of our affection for Peru’s ancient art of weaving.
Crafted by master weavers in a quiet mountain village in the Peruvian Andes, each throw takes about a week to complete. Made exclusively in a fair trade environment.
Note: Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic, so this throw is ideal for those with allergies or sensitive skin.
- MEASUREMENTS: 70"L x 50"W (+ 7" hand-knotted fringe)
- MATERIALS: 100% super soft baby alpaca
- COLOR: Shades of grey – from dove to charcoal, light blush, and cream
Dry cleaning is the best option for removing stains or occasional cleaning.

Lightweight, gorgeous—a must!
I bought this for my mom for Christmas and she is absolutely raving about how warm it is. We can’t get over how incredibly soft & light it is for how warm it keeps her when she’s snuggled on the couch reading! Plus, it’s just fabulous and really adds to the look of her living room when it’s draped in the couch. Effortlessly stylish and useful! The best.
Great for gifting!
I purchased this as a gift and The Citizenry gets an A+ for offering reasonable gift wrapping and shipping charges. I had it shipped directly to the recipient so I can’t speak to the appearance or quality of the blanket/throw itself.
Beautiful, soft, not compatible with cats
I love the look and feel of this blanket, it's soft to the touch and drapey. The patterns and colors are lovely. Unfortunately my cat walked across it and her claws caught in the weaving and pulled a bunch of threads. Within a few days of normal use (as a blanket or draped on the couch) it is covered in pulls from the cats. I wouldn't recommend this for cat households.
Hi Tracy, Thanks for your note. 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. Thanks so much for making The Citizenry a part of your space - it means the world to us. Best, - The Citizenry Team
