Alpaca Travel Wraps

9th August 2010

Our alpaca travel wraps are the must have item for the lady on the go. Handmade in Peru from 100% baby alpaca yarn, these travel wraps are wonderfully light, warm and versatile from season to season.

In a time where the airport security procedures tighten and hand luggage sizes decrease, until we can hardly fit our shampoo into our on flight bags, our beautiful wraps are the perfect solution. Alpaca is renowned for its flexible qualities and can be squashed down to a fraction of its original size, while barely creasing at all. Our generously sized travel wraps measure almost 1x2m square but can be easily crammed into your hand luggage to avoid the inevitable ‘sweater hanging’ round your neck, waist or bag! Then just pull it out, and cover yourself from the artic air conditioning of your flight!

The travel wraps are useful in many other ways when you actually get to your destination too. Wrap it round your shoulders when the sun goes down and ‘voila’ a beautiful shawl. Use them as a cover up on the beach when the midday sun is high or a pillow for your head while you read your book! In the daytime, pair with a fitted blazer and loop round your neck as a large scarf. Our travel wraps are ideal for alfresco weddings and garden parties too, just throw over your shoulder for instant elegance.

The benefit of choosing an alpaca travel wrap opposed to a wrap made from another fibre is their ‘lighter than air’ and slippery soft feel. As alpaca is a hollow fibre, it can keep you warm without weighing you down. Our collection of travel wraps are available in four Summer pastel colours, versatile enough to suit any Spring/Summer outfit. Choose from duck egg blue, pistachio, Ivory or French Grey.

However, these wraps aren’t limited to Summer time wear, we also have a collection of rich Winter colours for those ski trips to Switzerland or just a walk in the British countryside. Our Winter travel wraps are available in charcoal grey, rich chocolate, deep claret and snowy Ivory. For the colder weather wear these wraps bundled round your neck as a thick luxurious scarf then wrap round your shoulders for a stylish look and an apres ski drink!

All of our travel wraps are available with a beautiful ivory gift box, mulberry tissue and branded ribbon for the perfect present. Treat your Mum on Mother’s Day, your wife for her birthday or yourself – just because! Alpaca is so resilient that our wraps aren’t just a gift they are an investment. Alpaca doesn’t pill or ball like cashmere does and is renowned for its supple qualities so doesn’t shrink or become misshapen with age. To make your wrap lasts that little bit longer, treat with care, and follow the washing instructions. For best results, handwash or dry clean only, dry on a flat surface and watch you don’t catch your rings on the knit!
