Buy Alpaca Blanket

Alpakin combines quality with sustainability

Alpaca blankets not only offer warmth and comfort, but are also incomparably soft and naturally have the elegant shine of the alpaca fiber . As the warmest wool in the world, alpaca offers you comfort like no other type of wool.

Our range of alpaca blankets from Peru is limited. Our two-tone alpaca blanket made from 100% softest baby alpaca wool is suitable for close skin contact and for sensitive children's skin. Baby alpaca is the highest quality and this finest alpaca wool is even suitable for allergy sufferers. The large alpaca wool blanket made from 50% alpaca, 35% wool and 15% synthetic is made from recycled materials and is therefore particularly environmentally friendly. Alpaca blankets from Alpakin reflect the craftsmanship of Peruvian women who produce for us with great dedication and pride in highest quality.

In our opinion, quality and sustainability should no longer be worth mentioning these days. Our wool comes from Peru, the country that offers premium alpaca wool, because alpacas live there in their natural habitat, which gives them the best conditions for developing high-quality wool. In order to provide buyers with better guidance, all of our blankets are Oeko Tex and Fair Trade certified. Our wool comes from alpacas that are kept in species-appropriate conditions. This is also confirmed by our animal welfare certificate Responsible Alpaca Standard (RAS), which was created specifically for the keeping and use of alpacas.

Which alpaca blanket is the softest?

A question we get asked a lot. If you are looking for softness and maximum comfort, the answer can only be baby alpaca, as it is the finest and softest alpaca fiber. At various events in Germany, we have seen the reaction of people who touch baby alpaca wool for the first time. Excited faces and the feeling of wanting to snuggle up straight away. Baby alpaca wool is so soft and gentle on the skin that it is ideal for baby clothes and allergy sufferers.

What makes alpaca blankets special?

The special features of alpaca blankets result from the unique properties of alpaca wool . No other type of wool combines as many advantages as alpaca wool, which is why it is more expensive. Due to the rarity and complex processing of baby alpaca, it is the most expensive type of alpaca wool.

Alpakawolle ist weich und sanft zur Haut

Alpaca wool is particularly pleasant on the skin, as it is one of the finest and therefore softest natural fibers. However, you should note that there are differences in the softness of alpaca wool, depending on the quality. The highest quality baby alpaca is obtained from protected body parts of adult alpacas and is particularly suitable for close skin contact. It is as soft as cashmere and, due to its rarity, is more expensive than the lower qualities superfine, fine and alpaca. If you want to use your alpaca wool blanket for cozy evenings on the sofa, lower quality grades of alpaca wool are sufficient, as they do not come into direct contact with your skin.

Alpaka Decken sind warm

As already mentioned, alpaca wool is the warmest wool. Your alpaca blanket not only keeps you warm, but is also breathable at the same time, so that even on warmer days you won't get too warm with your alpaca wool blanket. Alpaca blankets are suitable for all seasons, in winter they keep you warm and in summer they don't let you overheat.

Alpakawolle enthält kaum Lanolin und ist hypoallergen

In contrast to other types of wool such as sheep's wool, alpaca wool contains hardly any lanolin (wool fat), which is a common trigger for allergic reactions. Alpaca blankets are ideal for people who suffer from allergies or generally have sensitive skin. For this reason, alpaca duvets are becoming increasingly popular.

Alpaka Decken sind strapazierfähig und langlebig

Alpaca fibers are long and therefore robust and tear-resistant. Even if you wax your alpaca wool blanket frequently, it will retain its shape over a long period of time and will not lose its softness.

Alpaka Decken sind leicht

The feeling of lying under a heavy blanket can be overwhelming. Alpaca wool is warm and lightweight. It doesn't weigh you down and offers a high level of comfort and well-being. Perfect for snuggling up and relaxing.

TIP

How big should my alpaca blanket be?

The size of your alpaca blanket depends on the occasion for which you want to use it. As an alpaca blanket for a single bed, we recommend that the blanket should be at least 150 cm x 200 cm so that it covers your entire bed. For a double or queen-size bed, you should calculate larger, from 200 cm x 240 cm, so that both people can cover themselves with the blanket and keep warm. Oversized blankets are around 240 cm x 260 cm.

If your alpaca blanket is intended to be used as a throw for your sofa, smaller blanket sizes such as 130 cm x 170 cm or 150 cm x 200 cm are sufficient. Our alpaca wool blanket measuring 150 cm x 200 cm is a popular size and is perfect for the couch.

CARE

Washing an alpaca blanket: 4 important care tips

To ensure that your alpaca blanket retains its softness and protects the fibers, you should follow these tips for proper cleaning:

Tipp #1: Regelmäßiges Lüften

Alpaca wool has antibacterial properties, which means it hardly absorbs any odors and needs to be washed less often than other natural fibers. To air the blanket, it is best to hang it outside for a few hours in a dry, airy place. This allows moisture to be drawn out and odors to be neutralized.

Tipps #2: Waschmaschine oder Handwäsche

When it's time to wash the alpaca blanket , you have the option of choosing between hand washing and machine washing. When cleaning in the washing machine, you should always choose the gentle wool cycle, with a low spin speed and a maximum of 30 degrees warm water. Use a pH-neutral wool detergent and do not add fabric softener or bleach, as this can permanently damage the fibers. If your alpaca wool blanket is very dirty, for example with red wine stains or greasy food residue, you should take it to a professional dry cleaner.

Tipp #3: Alpaka Decke liegend lufttrocknen lassen

To dry your freshly cleaned alpaca blanket, you should lay it flat on a towel or on a clothes rack. Do not let the blanket hang down, as this can cause it to deform. Heat sources such as dryers and direct sunlight can damage the wool and should be avoided.

Tipp#4: Pilling richtig entfernen

Alpaca wool is naturally very unlikely to pill, especially if the wool quality is good. If you discover pilling knots on the surface of your blanket over time, you can gently remove them with a lint shaver or a special wool comb. It is important not to simply rip out the knots, as this will damage the wool fabric. You can find detailed information in our blog articles What to do about pilling and How to avoid pilling.
