Baby Alpaca scarf
This scarf in a fish bone pattern made of 100% baby alpaca has a classic, modern design and an elegant shine. Baby alpaca is one of the finest natural fibres in the world thanks to its excellent, soft and velvety quality.
Our baby alpaca scarves are made locally in various communities in the Andes. We adapt our designs to the production capabilities of each community, thus achieving a collection that expresses the local culture and resources in South America in each design. Our artisans work with a wide variety of techniques ranging from hand spinning, hand weaving, hand operated machines, to manufacturing with different textures and natural colours to accompany you on different occasions over the years.
Antiallergic – Warm – Soft – Breathable – Dirt-repellent
Alpacas are animals that live in the extreme conditions of the Andean highlands in South America: at an altitude that can exceed 4,500 meters and at temperatures between -20° C and + 20° C. Baby alpaca fibre comes mainly from the alpacas’ first shear when they are around 2½ years old. In order to adapt to these harsh climatic conditions, they develop special protection: a long, fine fur that does not retain water and is particularly warm. Thanks to these thermoregulatory properties, the Nova scarf offers optimal warmth in winter and when it is warm, this fibre feels cool. Alpaca fibre is a natural product that “breathes”. In addition, natural baby alpaca fibre has an antibacterial effect, i.e. Bacteria cannot multiply on its surface and die. Finally, baby alpaca fibre is biodegradable.
That is the secret of the quality of this precious fibre. With regard to the fineness of the fibre, our scarves are very soft and hypoallergenic. For this reason, they are very suitable for sensitive and delicate skin. Alpaca wool is dirt-repellent and odor-neutralizing, i.e. it can give off odors again when airing.
TASHAY cares about the environment: the products made exclusively from natural fibres are 100% sustainable: the breeding practices use traditional methods. The camelids are sheared manually, avoiding the use of machines and harmful chemicals by using the natural colours of these fibres as the basis of our collections, which range from natural colour to black through various shades of gray and brown.
