Our Cotacachi blanket is woven with love from traditional designs by a family of artisans in Otavalo, Ecuador. Alpaca fleece is considered one of the most luxurious fabrics in the world. It is warmer, softer, and lighter than sheep's wool, naturally water repellent, and hypoallergenic. It’s fibers are filled with microscopic air pockets, which make it surprisingly lightweight and breathable. We met directly with the local weaver family in Ecuador to pick the pattern and colors, and brought a limited supply back to California. We love these blankets and know you will too. They won't last long at this great price, so get one while they last!
Cotacachi is a volcano located in Ecuador that is sacred to the local native communities. According to local legend, the healthy air that flows through the surrounding valleys is the love and confidence shared between the fatherly Imbabura volcano and 'mama' Cotacachi volcano. It is said that every time they visit each other they place a bit of snow on top of their summits.
80% Alpaca fleece 20% Synthetic blend

*As with all handmade woven items, slight variations in size and minor imperfections are normal, and part of what makes them unique and different from a mass produced factory product.
Care Instructions: The best way to freshen up your blanket is to hang it up somewhere with ventilation. They are durable enough to wash on the gentle cycle (with minimal delicate soap) and tumble dry on low, but as with all water repellant natural fiber blankets, spot cleaning or dry cleaning is recommended.
