Brushed alpaca wool feels silky-soft and warm and is hypoallergenic, lightweight, and breathable, so you can get cozy without feeling overheated.

Heavenly

11/29/2018 by Gail

I liked the throw I bought for myself so much that I bought 4 more for Christmas gifts. The throw makes me feel good, like I’m inside a cozy cloud. Not only physically feel good but emotionally good as well.
I bought the bright colors one and it looks exactly as pictured.

Very soft

I haven’t actually used the blanket yet but it is very soft and the colors are nicely muted. However I noticed when I threw it around my shoulders that it did shed onto my clothes. So when I actually use the blanket, I’m afraid it might shed in excess.More > < Less

Beautiful but not so cozy

1/21/2019 by John

My wife, for whom I purchased this beautiful throw, admired its beauty but complained that it really didn't keep her warm. So be aware, that it is a lightweight coverlet not a warm blanket.More > < Less

Blanket

I purchased this for an anniversary gift for my wife. It appears to be well made and is very soft, however, my wife said it is overpriced. I wrapped it around me this morning and it is very warm.More > < Less

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.
