I have to say that these lovely throws made from alpaca fibers were such a pleasant surprise to come across. Even though the snow has yet to arrive here where I live, it has gotten colder and I welcome everything that can keep me warm. But being a design lover I don´t mind that the product has both function and style, and with these throws I get the best of both.
If you are a regular reader of my blog you have probably picked up that I like to highlight products that you can enjoy for years, having a classic design and made of high quality, and I feel these throws fit these criteria perfectly. The quality feeling is great, and they are warm – really warm. The alpaca wool is actually several times warmer than sheep wool, so if you easily freeze during winter this might be something for you – oh and it does not itch!
Another thing worth pointing out is that these throws are designed by the Norwegian company “Norsk Alpakka” and produced at their facility in Manchester (UK), all done with exceptional care and focus on animal welfare. A rarity today, unfortunately.
So if this sounds like something you would like yourself, I can share with you that since the producer “Norsk Alpakka“ actually just launched these throws to the market, they are now offering an introduction price for these throws of 1799 NOK (about €190). The regular price being 1999 NOK (about €211). They are also offering free shipping in Norway, and a low fee for international orders – and all orders are shipped in a stylish box so if you are looking for a Christmas gift this has all you need 🙂
An old classic gets some warmth from a potential new classic 😉
My dog Conrad was jumping with joy when I unpacked the throws and has found his own favorite.
The throws come in six different colors / designs, and I have to say it is impossible picking a favorite myself. You can also see all throws on their webshop.
