Alpaca Blend Ruana Knit Wraps

A Ruana is a poncho-style wrap originating in Peru's Andes Mountains. They are very versatile, can be worn many ways!

Alpaca is getting a lot more attention these days, now that people are starting to notice how it tends to outperform other fibers like wool and synthetics. And why shouldn’t it? Alpaca fleece has been around for millennia — even the ancient Incan kings recognized the alpaca’s unique qualities and reserved the “fiber of the gods” for use by only the wealthy and influential.

Alpaca is a breed apart when it comes to natural fibers. Stronger, softer, lighter, and warmer than either merino wool or cashmere, it’s a natural choice for winter clothing and accessories. It’s also resistant to pilling and won’t shrink if proper care is given, making it possible to keep your alpaca clothing for years, even decades!  Blending alpaca with wool gives these ruanas an added edge with wear and care.
