All Little Otavalo products are handmade by the indigenous people of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador’s Otavalo City. As such, Little Otavalo uses alpaca wool because of its elegant fibres, which are warmer, lighter, and stronger than cashmere.
These Andes blankets are light and gentle to the touch. Perfected through craft over the years this blanket provides warmth and comfort for even the coldest of nights. A perfect gift for the holidays with over 10 Colour patterns to chose from at any given time in our shop.
Our Verano collection features our throws made with a similar technique to our shawls. These warm and fuzzy pettable blankets that are soft to the touch are what you were searching for, then search no more! These throws are similar in height to our famous blankets, but are lighter and shorter in width. Perfect for a couch cuddles or as a decor statement piece to bring the whole room together, each colour is sure to please.
Do you find standard wool blankets to be scratchy? Alpaca wool is hypoallergenic, which makes it the opposite of itchy — rather, alpaca wool feels soft and warm against the skin. To achieve that key balance of comfort and warmth, Little Otavalo uses a blend of Alpaca 40% and Acrylic 60% in every blanket. Our queen size is a great fit! The same blankets can accommodate a King size bed, but wont drape as far over the sides.
