PRODUCT DESCRIPTION - INCA ALPACA THROW

For a truly amazing alpaca throw blanket, look no further than the new Inca Alpaca Throw from Threads of Peru!

This design pays tribute to the Inca constructions, such as roads and bridges, in the District of Ollantaytambo. Inca roads were the most significant architectural works because they allowed good communication between communities.

Who made this Alpaca Throw Blanket?

The Inca Alpaca Throw was made in the high Andean of community of Chaullacocha at an altitude of over 4, 300 metres (14,100 feet) by an indigenous Quechua weaver.
