This gentle, island-inspired shade of gray is handwoven with luxuriously soft, breathable alpaca. Perfect for all seasons, it becomes more inviting the more it’s worn. A wonderful wardrobe staple to reach for again and again.

Soft, durable, and naturally hypoallergenic, alpaca is the ideal choice for those with sensitive skin. We use only the finest alpaca fibers sourced from Peru (a country renowned for its alpaca heritage) to create this heirloom-quality accessory. 100% handcrafted by our local master weavers in our Main Street studio, including hand-knotted fringe.

    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.
