Description

Baby alpaca.

140cm x 210cm | 57,09” x 70,87”

The blankets that we produce at ÁBBATTE are made using one of the oldest methods and techniques. Although some changes have been made over time, the process of making these pieces is still the same. It is a long and complicated process which requires a lot of dedication and skill and is carried out by a group of local weavers.

To make these blankets, first we choose spun alpaca and silk, with which we prepare the threads and arrange them parallel to each other on the loom, this is known as the warp. Other threads, known as the weft, are intertwined with the warp threads, together they will gradually shape the piece in the form of a blanket.

Very different results can be obtained from the same warp, depending on the weft that it is combined with. When weaving, the color of the weft always stands out more, creating very different pieces even though they share the same warp.
