Asher Market started as the collaboration of two sisters, Ashley + Erin. Traveling the world to bring you the most beautiful finds, we have focused in on the luxurious yet practical alpaca yarn. Designed in California and made in Peru, our alpaca blend throws are beyond soft and never itchy. They are also machine washable! Being moms and people who generally love to use the items they buy (we don't live in a museum), the washability of our products shines as a most important quality. Our scarves and our ponchos are made of the same material.
Our baby alpaca items are comparable to cashmere in their quality and softness. Baby alpaca is the finest fiber of alpaca yarn and, as such, these items are dry clean only. Alpaca does not contain lanolin, the oil in other wools that holds dirt and dust and makes items feel dirty quickly. All this to say that our baby alpaca throws rarely feel dirty meaning you only have to clean them sparingly.
A few highlights of alpaca and our products:
- alpaca is up to five times warmer than sheep's wool
- alpaca is generally safe for people who are allergic to sheep's wool because it does not contain lanolin
- our products are lightweight yet still warm. on a cold night, sleep with your throw under the blanket for extra warmth
- our products fold compactly making them the perfect travel item. and, upon your return home, you can wash them!

Alpaca Blend: machine wash sparingly in cold water. Hang dry. If a snag occurs, pull edge to edge or top to bottom and the snag will go back into place. If it does not, pull it in as much as it will go and then cut off the loop with sharp scissors. This will not unravel the item.
Baby Alpaca: dry clean only.
