100% alpaca headband hand knitted with beautiful herringbone stitch. Perfect alternative to a hat - keep your ears warm without the dreaded 'hat hair'! Great for skiing too, or under a cycle helmet. Sumptuously soft.
Alpaca is one of the most luxurious fibres in the world. It is known for its softness, warmth, sheen, lightweightedness and durability. It won't pill and will last much longer than synthetic fibres. Alpaca is warmer than cashmere and lambswool thanks to the fibre's unique hollow core which has impressive insulating qualities.
One size - they stretch.
All of our 100% alpaca products are made using top quality alpaca fibre which we source from the highly regarded Peruvian manufacturer 'Michell'.
Mamacha produces luxury alpaca knitwear designed in England and lovingly hand made at a small women's co-operative in Peru.
