Opulent to the eye and touch, a Baby Alpaca shawl is appropriate for a wide variety of occasions, moving effortlessly from informal afternoon walks or tea with friends to formal dinners or opera. And, they are enchantingly beautiful to present as a Gift Shawl!
Fashioned of finest quality Suri Baby Alpaca from the Bolivian altiplano at 15,000 feet above sea level, this particular fiber is in high demand by couture designers in Europe. In ancient times, garments from the Suri Alpaca were reserved only for royal families of the Inca.
These high fashion luxury shawls are primarily found in exclusive European and Asian boutiques with normal retail price listed at $500-$600. Hamsa Shawls offering of these very elegant and exquisite wraps is quite reasonable by comparison. It is our good fortune to acquire these rare shawls directly from a private group of artisanas in Bolivia who fashion each shawl individually.
Acknowledged by leading fashion designers the world over for its exceptionally long fibers with a silky quality, Pure Suri Baby Alpaca from the high Bolivian plateau is exclusively selected for Couture shawls and garments. By contrast, the majority of Baby Alpaca and Alpaca items found on the world market are produced from the more plentiful and less expensive, crimped curly fiber of the Huacaya Alpaca.
