Elvang plaids, scarves, cushions from the alpaca experts in Denmark
Elvang Denmark stands for luxurious textiles made with integrity and pride. Ethical trade is a keyword for the Danish company. Elvang plaids and cushions are handicrafts not only because of their excellent workmanship, but also because of their classic designs.
Elvang scarves - warm and soft
If your neck has ever been caressed by an alpaca wool scarf on a cold winter night, you will miss the wonderful softness and warmth of this special wool fibre with any other scarf. Since the Elvang founders have stumbled upon this amazing wool fibre in Peru in 2002, the Danish brand's success story has almost weaved itself. The sustainability and fairness of all plaids and scarves also runs through the production like a thread. This starts with the salary of the alpaca shepherds and ends with the recycled packaging of the wool products ready for shipping. For Elvang, the best product for the customer also includes ethics, integrity and respect in manufacturing. The World Fair Trade Organization even honours these standards with the extremely rarely given highest Fair Trade certification.
Summer and winter – plaids for balmy evenings and snowy nights
The fibres of alpaca wool are delicate and thin, which is why textiles made of it are very soft. The fibres of alpaca wool are hollow on the inside, which makes the alpaca fibre insulating. Elvang uses this property to weave extra fine and delicate plaids and pillows that are warm, nonetheless. The properties of the Elvang blankets are not only amazing, but also very practical: When it's hot, the textiles feel cool in contrast; after all, the fibre not only insulates cold, but also heat. So your plaid is not only an excellent gift in the cold half of the year but appropriate all year round. By the way, Scandi plaids always go down well as gifts. Allergy sufferers usually tolerate alpaca plaids, cushions and scarves very well.
Alpaca wool in comparison - hardly any pilling
The structure of the alpaca fibre makes it more durable than other wool fibres such as sheep's wool or cashmere. This means you can enjoy alpaca products for many years. Textiles made from sheep's wool often pill and become slightly roughened. This is because wool fibres are uneven, stick to each other and roughen each other up a little. Alpaca fibres, on the other hand, are smooth. Due to the long experience with alpaca wool and a special weaving technique, Elvang products have minimal pilling.
