I have a light colored version, but I’ve had my eye on this one for months. So glad I finally purchased. So soft and vibrant! I’m addicted to Alpaca!
I live in AZ where it’s only cool in the winter, but we have some chilly mornings. These are perfect for warming up in the morning. Comfortable and stylish! My 8 yr old wears them to be fashionable even when it’s hot! Our dog likes the alpaca smell :-)
Shupaca always packs their products nicely and they always arrive in excellent condition. Over the past several years I have never had an order with a problem.
One of our favorite vendors to do business with!
Beautiful hat, very comfortable and soft. I love the natural material. This is my second Shupaca hat, purchasing with confidence!
The colors are lovely & the scarf is so very soft. This will be a favorite.

Very soft and pretty to look at.
Blanket is beautiful, soft and better than we hoped. Not too heavy but still warm.
I have several items from Shupaca (throws and shawls) and decided to buy this little bear. The other items are so cozy and soft (not itchy) and this bear might be the cutest thing I've ever seen. It's so soft and very well made. I recommend Shupaca products to all my friends!
I bought the "seabreeze" throw for a friend of mine, who is about to undergo radiation and chemotherapy. Not only was the throw delivered to her far more quickly than I expected, but the message, which I had asked to be included in the shipping box, was perfect - no mistakes, quick shipping, and a beautiful throw. I couldn't be more pleased with selecting this as a gift for my friend. Even better, she was deeply touched by the throw, thinks it's a gorgeous color, and has been taking it with her every day to her radiation sessions. Thank you, customer service, for doing such a great job.
I love the incredible warmth and lightness of these colorful blankets. I have one on my bed and one on my couch. I have given them as presents to all my family members and even as a wedding gift.
I bought this particular item as gift for a friend after purchasing one for myself about a year ago. She loves it and says it is beautiful. (I haven't seen it in person myself yet). But let me tell you how I came to own mine... I attended the Telluride Brews and Blues festival last September. We rented tents that came with cots and sleeping bags that were rated to 30 degrees. Even so equipped, that first night was the coldest and most miserable I have ever been in my entire life. Seriously. Even fully clothed with a light down jacket on and my head so deep in the sleeping bag I could barely breathe, I nearly froze. I literally did not sleep all night. The next morning we went into town- and happened across a little boutique-like store that had alpaca hats on a table outside. And inside the store - full size alpaca blankets from Shupaca. I bought one - and a hat too - and between the two of them, they rescued my mini-vacation from going down in the annals of infamy. That night, wrapped up in that blanket, I slept like a baby. I didn't even wear my coat... I have been a fan of alpaca for a long time. I have alpaca sweaters and alpaca socks... Now, I have to admit, I'm probably closer to an addict... I can say the blankets from Shupaca are really high quality and the fiber content listed on the label is accurate. Some brands that claim to be alpaca are mostly acrylic with only a small percentage of alpaca - or are alpaca mixed with sheep wool. These are light weight, but not too thin either, soft and not the least bit "scratchy". In the winter at home, I put mine down on top of my fitted sheet, fold it over myself, then pull a down comforter over the top. It's heavenly....so soft - I never get that "shock" of laying on a cold sheet. I am toasty warm from the minute I crawl in bed through even the worst cold winter nights In the summer, I pull it over me on all but the most sweltering nights so the breeze from the ceiling fan doesn't give me the chills. I'm still somewhat amazed that I never get too hot or wake up in the night feeling sweaty. Must be because alpaca "breathes" ... Anyway, I couldn't be happier with my Shupaca blanket. Delivery was quick and price reasonable for the quality
I bought several pairs of these and LOVE them. Friends have seen them and proceeded to buy their own. They are absolutely perfect AND the more you wash them, the better they look and feel. They fluff up and get softer. Perfect for keeping my wrists and hands warm. Top quality.
