There’s nothing softer and more luxuriously pampering than a hand-knitted blanket made from 100% baby alpaca wool! These blankets are made with love just for you, and are meant to be treasured—just like handmade family heirlooms passed down through the generations. Use as a throw over your sofa so you can cuddle up in warmth while you’re watching TV, or toss on your bed for an extra layer of coziness while you sleep. Kids love to snuggle up under them as well, and they make the perfect gift for friends.
Every Miou item is hand-knitted by our exceptionally talented knitters in Peru, many of whom are single mothers trying to support their children. Working for Miou allows them to work from home so they can spend more time with their families while earning enough money to support and educate their kids. Knitting is a highly valued skill in that region of Peru, and it is handed down from mother to daughter, which ensures a better future for the next generation of young women. We value our knitters and pay them a fair wage for their work.
