Treat yourself to this all-natural scarf made of one of nature’s best materials! This scarf is made using minimalist techniques of nothing but undyed baby alpaca wool. Alpaca wool is warmer and lighter than sheep's wool, durable, hypoallergenic, wrinkle free, odor resistant, natural, and easy on the environment. It does not prick or scratch like sheep's wool, making it appropriate for babies and those with sensitive skin. Baby alpaca is an extra fine grade comparable in softness to cashmere and does not really come from a baby - it is from the first shearing of a one-year-old adult alpaca. Shearing is not harmful for alpacas and is necessary after winter's end to prevent them from overheating. This product was made by artisans in the Andes regions of South America.
