These alpaca scarves are handmade by Welsh artist Gill Fathers from alpacas she keeps on her farm in the Rheidol River Valley, Aberystwyth, Wales. Gill chooses her alpacas based on their colors, so that she can create her unique scarves without dyes of any sort. Each is made of 100% alpaca fleece –– softer, more lustrous, 30% warmer than lambswool and, unlike lambswool, hypoallergenic. Gill’s scarves represent her commitment to a way of life and to the creation of beautiful, enduring clothing.
