Maya ECO Light Grey with Taupe and Dark Grey Stripes
Woven in Peru using the finest baby alpaca wool and a touch of silk, the Maya Scarf is lavishly soft and delicate in weight. Baby alpaca wool is distinguished from other wools because of its deluxe softness, its eco-friendly footprint and for the fact that it is 100% hypoallergenic. The unique thermal properties of baby alpaca fibre make the Maya alpaca wool scarf a wonderfully cosy winter accessory or lightweight summer scarf. It can also be unfolded and worn as an elegant wrap ideal for adding a statement finish to either a formal or casual look.
Free from lanolin and other impurities, the Maya Alpaca Wool Scarf is kind on sensitive skin and provides soothing comfort with its exceptional softness. Finished with gentry fringed edges and naturally coloured with understated greys and soft taupe, the Maya alpaca scarf effortlessly complements any look. It is coloured naturally and so saves around 53 litres of water per 1kg of raw material that would usually be wasted through artificial dying. This makes the Maya Alpaca Wool Scarf an eco-friendly alternative to other scarves, but one which does not sacrifice on style or comfort. With these qualities met to an exceptional standard, this eco-friendly baby alpaca wool scarf is a must-have wardrobe staple or a most special gift to a loved one.
* Baby alpaca wool does not come from baby alpacas. The term ‘baby’ refers to the fine grading of the fibre which is 19.5-21.5 microns in width. It is the fine quality of baby alpaca fibre which makes it distinctively softer than other wools. All Tuwi products are ethically sourced and made using Fair Trade certified suppliers.
