Hurrah!! Summer has FINALLY put in an appearance, and fingers crossed its going to stick around for a while yet. If you’re planning on relaxing in the garden or on the beach, or if you’re having evening barbecues or garden parties, or you might be boarding a long haul flight to somewhere where you can guarantee the good weather, an Alpaca Travel Shawl might well become your new best friend.


A silky soft mix of Alpaca and Bamboo makes this shawl super light and hypo-allergenic. It is perfect for wrapping around your shoulders as the evening gets cooler, or to use as a blanket whilst on board a flight. The shawl comes in a gorgeous matching cover which turns it into a cute bolster cushion, which is great for resting your head on in the garden or on the beach when you’re sunbathing, or as a small pillow if you’re travelling.

The shawl is a great size at 90x190cm and for me its ideal as it makes the shawl very versatile. I love that its made from Alpaca which is great against sensitive or delicate skin, meaning you could even use it as a blanket to lie your little one’s on, or to cover them if they are asleep in the car. Being Alpaca also makes it incredibly strong and long lasting, so you’ll be investing in a piece that will last you for years to come. The shawl comes in eight colours so you’re bound to find one to suit, whether it be for day to day use or for a special occasion like a wedding or christening.

Alpaca Travel Shawls are available now direct from the Samantha Holmes website where you’ll also find a range of beautifully made fashion and home accessories.
