Warmer than wool, this silky, hypoallergenic scarf is hand-woven of 80% pure alpaca with 20% nylon for resilience. Each scarf measures approximately 11 inches by 72 inches. Handcrafted for Uno Alla Volta, from the heart and hands of the artisans.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper echelon may delight in the exclusivity of an object, crafting culture permeates the trendy shops of modern-day, millennial Brooklyn, and led the grassroots, ultra-feminist Riot Grrrl movement of the early 1990s. From punk musicians to polished socialites, an appreciation for handcrafted, one-of-a-kind wares is a common thread that connects us to our humanity. This work reminds us that our fingers can do so much more than just operate machines. It connects us to our cultures, our ancestors, our neighbors, and even strangers from faraway places, just through placing a single object between our palms.
