The alpaca yarn for these blankets is hand spun for Juniper & Bliss in a micro-mill in Scotland. The nearby alpaca farmers and people who keep these amazing animals as pets bring the fleece to the mill, take back the super-soft yarn for home knitting, leaving the surplus for bespoke orders.
In its core alpaca yarn is filled with microscopic air pockets which makes this blanket very light and extremely warm. Alpaca is known for its smooth yarn and anti-allergenic properties.
For even more luxury, our alpaca is blended with un-dyed French mohair. The result is unbelievably soft and cozy!
Hand knitting these blankets takes approximately 120 hours, we make them because we like to.
This blanket is an heirloom of the future. we hope you will enjoy it and pass it on for others to keep warm.
