Manos De Sur is pleased to offer full-sized South American inspired blankets. The alpaca is a domesticated llama-like animal that is believed to originate from the vicuña and guana. The domestication began some 5,000 years ago in pre-Columbian South America. Legend notes that alpaca fibers were used to make clothing for Inca royalty. Manos De Sur partners with a small family business in South America to produce our blankets. The items are 60% alpaca wool & 40% acrylic.
South American people in remote villages have been using alpaca wool for hundreds of generations. They use it for clothes and blankets. The wool varies depending on the area.
