Our interpretation of the “little black dress”, this opulent handwoven wrap is the embodiment of simple elegance and artisanal tradition. A true go-to staple, you will never run out of ways or reasons to wear it. Crafted from the highest quality alpaca sourced from Peru (a country renowned for its alpaca heritage), along with the most exquisite Japanese spun silk.

Warmer than sheep’s wool, soft to the touch, and naturally hypoallergenic, alpaca is the ideal choice for those with sensitive skin. Coupled with the lustrous sheen of the interwoven silk, this heirloom-quality piece makes for a stunning addition to your year-round wardrobe. 100% handcrafted by our local master weavers in our Main Street studio, including hand-knotted fringe.

  • 84" L X 22" W
  • 50% Peruvian Alpaca
  • 50% Japanese Silk
  • Dry clean only
  • Handwoven in our 51 Main St. studio
  • Designed in the late 1960’s for Nantucket Looms, our classic boatneck sweater never goes out of style. Originally designed to be worn without a shirt underneath, the boatneck can be worn in a more fitted fashion or select the next size up for a looser fit. The saddle stitch shoulders and high boatneck collar are distinctive to this sweater. Unisex sizing.

    This is a well made shawl and serves the purpose (warmth) quite well. I have the ivory version of this shawl, too. They are pricey, as hand made items are bound to be, but one has only to compare them with other shawls to understand it is worth the price.
