Similar to a poncho but with a front opening for easy drape, our alpaca ruana has a scarf sewn into the collar for extra protection against cold weather. Each ruana comes with a free matching cap. For this ruana, the alpaca fiber is blended and spun with a high-quality acrylic wool in order to produce a woven textile that is lightweight, very warm, and durable. Although the ruana is worn as a wrap over the shoulders, there are matching buttons, for decoration only, along one front border.
This product is made by .Camargo.. They use a blend of 27% Alpaca and 73% high quality-extremely thin Acrylic. It is extremely soft and fells very nice. You can find these Camargo products sold as 100% alpaca at local handicrafts markets in Peru, some times even at EBay -sellers there most of the time do not say the alpaca percent the product have- and also in other web sites around.
It is a nice and fine product for its price but keep in mind the alpaca percentage it has. The product is an excellent example of what can be done with alpaca fiber and how can it be blended with other fibers.
