Handwoven Alpaca Throws
Date Posted:19 November 2015
Inspired by Culture, Nature & Humanity
Wrap yourself in culture and craftmanship. Inka weaves the ancient tradition of artisan blanket-making with modern design and innovation. Made using sustainably sourced alpaca wool, your blanket is naturally warm and soft and hypoallergenic. Lovingly hand finished in Peru.
Designed by dreamers in Australia - Inka Designs are made from 30% Alpaca Wool and 70% Synthetic Wool. I can be quite sensitive to wool products and the first thing I did when seeing this product was to hold it to my skin to see if if itched and it didn't...beautifully soft to the touch.
About Inka Designs -
