Regatta Blue Handwoven Alpaca Throw

$ 750.00

Nantucket’s racing roots are honored in this ultra-soft handwoven throw. Our alpaca throw blankets are crafted using 100% Peruvian alpaca, which is extra soft and hypoallergenic. Microscopic air pockets allow the textile to breathe on warm days or trap air on cool days, providing the ultimate in comfort no matter the conditions.


4' W x 7' L

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.


The Feel


The Qualities

As soft as fine cashmere yet remarkably durable and breathable, our handwoven alpaca throws are the ultimate in lasting comfort and style. Slightly heavier than other textiles we weave, they have a little bit of weight to them which allows for beautiful draping on your favorite chair or sofa.

The Craftsmanship

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.
