A lightweight scarf, hand knitted using 100% alpaca yarn. Good quality alpaca is famed for its warmth and its water-resistant quality, making it a perfect choice for the winter. It is also hypoallergenic and softer than sheep wool; an excellent choice for kids and babies.
Materials & Design
This scarf is handcrafted using soft, luxurious, 100% alpaca yarn. It comes in 5 different natural, undyed colors e.g. colors that are naturally occurring variations of the alpaca hair: cream white, beige, brown, grey and black.
The thread and the knitting is fine and it is decorated with a classic braided pattern and it ends with a crochet fringe.
This scarf is 200 cm (78,74") long and 18 cm (7.09") wide. The fringe itself is 7 cm (2.76") long.
Natural alpaca textiles should be handwashed in cold water using mild detergent. Let them dry on a flat surface so that they don't loose their shape.

I bought the black variation of this scarf, quite happy with it. It has a classic design and it is versatile as it can be worn for either a casual or a more elegant look. The fabric is 100% alpaca and it is lightweight, soft and warm, as described. Being used to sheep wool products, this scarf is finer and thinner than I expected, which was a nice surprise.

The second alpaca product I purchased from the Ya Market, after being satisfied with a poncho I bought from the same shop (Intichay). I chose these mittens for their elegant design, and I am delighted with the choice.6 years 6 months agoView review

My wife's sister bought a similar poncho from the Ya Market and she was so satisfied that my wife decided to buy one as well. She really liked it, it is great! She was quite impressed with the quality of the alpaca yarn since she hadn't had alpaca clothes before.6 years 6 months agoView review

I know a lot about knitting, and I can tell that this poncho is handmade and of the highest quality. It was the first time I bought something made with alpaca yarn (we don't have that in Europe!) and I was impressed by how soft, fluffy and warm it is.6 years 7 months agoView review
About the alpaca fiber
Alpaca is the natural fiber that is derived from the hair of the Alpaca camelid, a species native to the Andes that lives between 3,500 and 4,500 meters altitude. The indigenous people in the Peruvian Andes have been harvesting the alpaca fiber for thousands of years in order to create a variety of handmade textiles. Good quality alpaca produces luxurious textiles that are famed for being lightweight, warm, strong, hypoallergenic, and for having water and fire resistance qualities.
