Nantucket Looms' Alpaca Throw - Handwoven on Nantucket

100% Peruvian Alpaca in Mist Grey - Handwoven on Nantucket
Milestone presents have specific challenges.  Births, weddings, graduations, special birthdays, holidays and anniversaries, and housewarming celebrations can require gifts with a certain gravitas and timelessness.

And for almost fifty years, the extraordinary throws, blankets, table linens and more of Nantucket Looms - handwoven on the second floor of their Main Street store - have been sought out by people all over the world for just such memorable occasions.  One favorite item is their lovely alpaca throw.
Milestone presents often become a part of one's home.

As the weather gets colder and the days grow shorter, with the wind coming off of the water, there is nothing ornamental about good throws.  The favorites are warm, soft, and beautiful.

Alpaca, which is known for its exceptional softness, is a hollow fiber,  allowing for more heat to be trapped, and thus is warmer than wool.  It is also hypo-allergenic, water repellent, and has a greater wicking ability.

Woven "using the same Maine-made Macomber looms since 1968".

The Nantucket Loom's Alpaca Throw is incredibly soft, beautiful, and distinctive, and made to be used every day.
