Softer than baby’s skin

Love this throw. I purchased it in the teal and green color. The colors are softly muted and go perfectly with my furniture. The texture makes you want to curl up in it. I live in FL so the weight of the throw is of importance. Highly recommend!

About Shupaca

Modern Coziness

An alpaca throw from Shupaca is not your typical couch-surfing blanket. From how one is made to how it looks—and, of course, how it feels—it is a super-soft and extra-special way to get cozy.

Makers Lori and Andrew Schuster work directly with craftspeople in South America to ensure each is paid fairly and directly for their work creating all of Shupaca’s alpaca goods. The throw blankets are made in the Pichincha region of Ecuador, where alpacas are an honored animal. When the alpacas are treated to an annual shearing, the unprocessed wool is woven on traditional wooden looms that have been used in the area for centuries.

Besides its silky softness, alpaca wool is a great choice for a blanket because it’s hypoallergenic, lightweight, durable, and breathable. And did we mention the softness? There’s zero itchiness here, unlike with other wool. Though the throws are made with decidedly old-school methods, the finished result is anything but dated. It has a modern vibe that—paired with snuggly warmth—makes for a blanket you’ll always want to have within reach.
