Pokoloko Alpaca Wrap Officer

POKOLOKO

$60.00

This wrap scarf is an alpaca blend made with seamless edges, eyelash fringe, and a solid, deep, dark blue colour story. This is a unique, fairly-traded, artisan-made blanket scarf with a luxe, ultra-soft hand feel.

 

  • This luxurious, ultra-soft artisanal wrap scarf was made by a family of Indigenous artisans living in the volcanic Andean mountains. This wrap scarf connects you with their long textile tradition dating back generations.
  • The perfect gift for friends, family, teachers, and for yourself.
  • Classy and cozy, for dressing up and/or down.
  • Non-itchy, breathable, lightweight, hypoallergenic.
  • This wrap scarf is hand-loomed, machine-woven, and then machine-brushed for added softness.
  • Fairly-traded and ethically-sourced.
  • Made with alpaca, a natural, technical fiber.
  • High-quality craftsmanship with a truly unique hand feel and timeless design — luxury that lasts.
  • Alpaca has unique thermal properties due to the mircoscopic air pockets found in its fiber, allowing air circulation on warm days and heat insulation on cool days. This prevents sweating in warmer weather, and in colder weather, contains heat for warmth.
  • No animals are harmed in the making of any Pokoloko product. Alpacas are shorn in cycles like sheep according to the seasons.
  • Luxury made to last. Alpaca is exceptionally durable if cared for properly, and more durable than sheep's wool. Non-itchy, lightweight, breathable, windproof, silky-smooth, resistant to piling and matting, non-shrinking, water and stain-resistant.
  • Ultra soft hand feel, luxurious texture. Soft and gentle on the skin. Alpaca is hypoallergenic.
  • Status symbol. In Incan history, alpaca was considered the "fiber of the gods," and reserved for royalty. Domesticated more than 6000 years ago, the alpaca represents a unique South American textile tradition.
  • Alpaca is one of the Earth's most sustainable fibers. Alpacas have soft, padded feet, not hooves, which minimize soil erosion. They consume relatively less water than other animals, and have efficient digestion, low level feeds, and they only nibble on top of pasture grass without uprooting it. No harsh chemicals are necessary to process alpaca as alpaca contains no lanolin oil.
