Woodbox Handwoven Alpaca Throw

$ 750.00

The Woodbox Handwoven Alpaca Throw is a take on a classic ticking stripe pattern, with a beautiful combination of neutral tones. A classic handwoven to curl up with in any season and with a name that honors our history.

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.

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.
