Are you looking for a luxurious extra layer against the winter chills? These beautifully handwoven alpaca wool scarves will add a touch of timeless sophistication to any outfit.

Crafted entirely by hand by indigenous Aymara women from Northern Chile, every scarf is a unique, one off item. Alpaca fibre for each scarf is spun and dyed individually, and then woven in a design chosen by each weaver. Although contemporary in style, these alpaca scarves form part of a long tradition of textile weaving in Andean communities, where alpaca fleece is highly prized for its luxurious softness, durability and superior insulating qualities.

Today, this skilled work provides a vital source of income for rural Aymara families in this harsh, remote mountainous region.
