The Buoy Blue Alpaca Throw is a take on the classic ticking stripe pattern, reminiscent of a summer cabana. A classic handwoven to curl up with in any season, thanks to microscopic air pockets that allow the textile to breathe on warm days or trap air on cool days.
Soft, durable, naturally hypoallergenic and even water repellent, our alpaca throws are perhaps our favorite handwovens we create. Each heirloom-quality throw is skillfully brought to life in our Main Street studio by a local master weaver using only the finest alpaca fibers sourced from Peru, a country renowned for its alpaca heritage. A beautiful and lasting piece of Nantucket to truly be enjoyed every day, completed with hand-knotted tassels.
I was on island a couple of weeks ago and purchased this beautiful alpaca throw for my sitting room. It is lovely! The blues in it are complimentary to so many colors. It is soft and warm. Perfect to throw over my legs when the a/c is a little chilly and will be cozy warm when winter rolls around. I am very happy with the quality and look of my handmade throw!
