Blankets and Throws
- Material: Alpaca Wool
This was a gift for a first time moms nursery. It went so well and was so soft! She used it in the rocking chair every night and is now a reminder of such sweet memories.

I felt nervous about buying this - it was out of my normal price range, and it seemed so unnecessary. I am so glad I bought it anyway! This baby alpaca throw is now one of my absolute favorite things. It is well made, beautiful to look at, and even better to feel during a cold, forbidding northern winter. It brings me joy every day.
I bought this beautiful, soft throw for my mother, and she keeps it in her living room to put on her lap. It looks wonderful on her couch, too. It has held up for more than a year now.
