Disappointed
07/07/2019 by Donna
Lightweight as it’s very thin. It is warm, though. The worse thing is the shedding. It sheds all the time. I don’t know what’ll happen after I wash it. Even if this were half the price, it’s not worth it.
Beatiful and functional

I didn't realize the throw would shed. The color was nice, but muted. Bu the name fireworks, I expected vibrant and bright. I returned. Some may love it, it just wasnt for me.

Brushed Alpaca Throw

An alpaca throw from Shupaca is a luxe-looking upgrade to the typical fleece blanket tossed on the couch. Brushed alpaca wool feels silky-soft and warm and is hypoallergenic, lightweight, and breathable, so you can get cozy without feeling overheated. The modern finish of the blanket is one you’ll be happy to have on display at home. Each blanket is handcrafted in Ecuador by artisans using traditional wooden looms, who are paid fair wages.

Shupaca

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.
