Hand-carved wooden decorations from the 18th-century Bolivian church of San Javier de Chiquitos are the inspiration for this warm winter accessory.


Made in Bolivia. 100% alpaca. 66"L x 8"W. Reverses to brown with white stripes.


Dry-clean.


Indigenous people in South America have raised alpaca for its fleece for thousands of years before Europeans learned about the animal and exported alpaca fiber to Spain in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today this domesticated animal is bred throughout the world, but its native habitat is the Andean Altiplano: Ecuador, southern Peru, northern Bolivia, and northern Chile.


Descended from the wild vicuña, alpacas resemble a cross between a llama and a sheep. The fleece is similar to sheep's wool, but is usually softer, less prickly, and has minimal lanolin content, making it virtually hypoallergenic. Its extreme warmth, relatively light weight, and natural resistance to water make alpaca wool an ideal fabric for the frigid winters of the Andean Altiplano. These qualities have also led to a rise in the use of alpaca fiber in outdoor gear and active wear, although it is also easily spun into a fine enough yarn for use in suits and other dress wear.


Most alpaca products can be treated as you would an object made of sheep's wool—hand wash using a mild soap and lukewarm water, or dry clean—but check the tag or manufacturer's instructions for specific instructions.

                Maya weavers turn a new page on tradition by using sustainable bamboo fiber on their back-strap looms rather than the usual wool to create this extra-long, extra-soft scarf. The watercolor effect is created using a tie-dye weaving process called ikat. 100% organic bamboo. Hand-wash or dry clean. Hand-loomed by a women’s craft collective in Solola, Guatemala.

                The Uros are an indigenous South American people whose civilization predates the Inca conquest. Today they continue to live on human-made totora-reed islands on Lake Titicaca and in small communities along the Rio Lauca in Bolivia. This soft alpaca scarf, in a range of muted earth tones, is inspired by millennia-old Uros textiles called mantas, which are simple striped, woven blankets.

                The city of Como, in the shadow of the Alps and at the southwestern end of glacial Lake Como, is just an hour north of Milan by train. Its villas and vistas have made it a resort destination since the Roman era, and it was once a center of Italian silk production. This scarf pays tribute to that history with a paisley pattern in shades of blue, green, and purple on a navy blue background.

                The iconic navy and white stripes of our Mariner Scarf is based on a pattern originally intended for deep sea fishermen in Breton, but that has since been adopted by seafarers and yachtsmen across the ages. It is based on the sweater originally worn by “marchand d’ail,” sellers of garlic and onions who sailed from Brittany to England with their wares. Eventually the French Navy adopted the tight-knit design, but only sailors and new recruits wore stripes—officers alone were permitted to wear solid colors.

                Our handsome herringbone-patterned wool scarf is designed and woven by a husband-and-wife team in their County Clare workshop, using an antique Hattersley Domestic loom from the early 1900s. These narrow machines, made in Yorkshire, England, of cast-iron, leather, and wood, are especially suited to weaving scarves because they create two naturally reinforced selvedge edges, rather than the cut and sewn edges found on industrially woven scarves.

                Archaeologists call the period between 1475 and 1532 Peru’s Late Horizon. Most smaller civilizations had become part of the Inca Empire, which dominated the region in the pre-Columbian era. Architecture, ceramics, and textile arts flourished. The gold and red geometric pattern of this soft baby alpaca and silk scarf is inspired by a woven sling from the Late Horizon period.

The simple scarf can be worn over the head, draped around the neck, or folded over one shoulder. It accompanies saris, evening dresses, and suits alike. Our handwoven silk scarf is equally adaptable, and features a classic hand-screened paisley pattern in royal blue over an orange background.

                The Paracas culture flourished in present-day Peru from the seventh to the first century B.C. When archaeologists discovered the Great Paracas Necropolis on the Pacific coast in the 1920s, it included a remarkably preserved woven textile, colored with natural dyes, featuring winged supernatural figures. The geometric garments worn by those shamanic figures are the inspiration for our ultrasoft baby alpaca and silk scarf, which uses similar earth-toned colors.
