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.
I bought these when visiting the Museum of Modern Art in San Francisco on a ridiculously cold and rainy day in January. They are surprisingly warm, and super functional and cute. I though I lost them later, and immediately bought another pair :)
First of all, I want to note that I have been searching for the perfect throw for my living area for over a year. Finally, I found it: The Best Alpaca Throw Blanket in Sea-grass met all my requirements. It is cuddly soft; not too thin and not too thick, it's the perfect size, and beautifully made! The color is breathtaking! Overall it is Sea-grass blue which looks like a deep turquoise, and upon closer inspection, you will notice subtle hints of gray interspersed throughout. The fringe is the perfect length, displaying colors of turquoise, teal, and sea-grass green. I couldn't be happier with my purchase. Also to note, Shupaca's customer service is top notch: they are extremely helpful with answering all your questions thoroughly. Love sitting on my sofa wrapped in this sumptuous throw and I am quite certain I will enjoy it for years to come. Thank you Shupaca. Well done!
My wife (and cat) absolutely love these alpaca throws. Incredibly soft and NOT itchy like wool. I bought her 2 new ones recently. They tend to thin out with heavy use but that is not a problem as they are still great. Can't say enough about these throws. Highly recommend them!
I really enjoy the alpaca blankets - I have two at home and just recently purchased a third one as a gift for my father. My dad's feedback mirrors mine . . . the weight of the blanket is perfect for cool evenings and we both feel loved when sleeping under one. In the warmer months I just use a sheet and one of your blankets and it's perfect. The blankets are so soft and luxurious and I recommend them highly.
I ordered the wrap as shown because it was as close as I could order to the color I wanted. The one shown on your site is lighter, almost aqua looking, with grey. When I received the wrap, it was the gorgeous midnight blue with charcoal “highlights” (for lack of a better word—in one direction, you see the blue, but turned another way, it looks more charcoal.). I had seen one like this somewhere else, but was unable to purchase it then. I am thrilled, thank you!
I had received a throw as a gift previously which I use and enjoy often. That was my first exposure to Shupaca. I will go to your site whenever I need a special gift for family or friend.
Our family absolutely loves this blanket, especially the kids. They fight over it, so I guess we probably need to get one for each of them. The thing I like about this blanket is that you can wrap up in it when it's colder and it will warm you up or when it's warmer and you won't get overheated.
Everything that you make & sell is off the chain stunning.
I ended up purchasing another scarf because they are so warm, soft, comfortable & BEAUTIFUL!
Thank you for helping so many ...in so many different ways.
Bless you. & thank you all :>)
This throw blanket is perfection and the third one I've purchased. One for myself and two for gifts. It is soft, light and warm. Quality and colors are beautiful and true to the photos.
Stayed at an Airbnb with this throw and went home and purchased it in the larger size. This blanket is so light weight and warm, I know it's more of a luxury item but I've even taken it camping because it feels weightless but keeps you so warm. Even bought one for my aunt who was cold during chemo treatments. Thank you!
My daughter absolutely loves her new alpaca! I can't get it out of her hands. It so soft... I love it!
I absolutely love this throw! The colors are fantastic, the feel is amazing and I look forward to snuggling up with it every night!
I love everything about this throw blanket! It's colorful, soft and just amazing. I highly recommend it.
