This opulent handwoven scarf 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.

Dimensions:
72'L x 12'W

Fiber:
100% Peruvian Alpaca

Dry clean only

Crafted by hand from start to finish in our Main Street weaving studio.

Our masterful artisans begin by thoughtfully selecting colors and fibers inspired by our surrounding landscape, then determine a pattern and desired weave structure for their design.

Next, they wind the fiber onto bobbins then wind the loom’s warp, a meticulously calculated process that sets the path of each and every thread used. These threads are manually connected to specific harnesses and securely hand-tied to “dress the loom”. Once this stage is complete, they can begin to weave.

Countless passes of the shuttle commence, rhythmic, muted sounds of wooden pedals fill the studio, and a beautiful textile begins to emerge. The handwoven process continues until the piece reaches its full length, at which point it is cut from the loom. Tassels are hand-knotted onto the ends, and a small label is hand-sewn onto the textile as the weaver’s final touch.
