The Alpaca and Bamboo Hot Water Bottle in 'Nutmeg' by Samantha Holmes is handmade by skilled artisans in Peru. The combination of 70% baby alpaca and 30% bamboo is luxuriously silky and soft to the touch – perfect to cuddle up to when the nights draw in! Fits a standard hot water bottle (hot water bottle insert included). This hot water bottle makes the perfect gift for Mother's Day!
About the brand: Samantha works closely with various small independent producer groups in poor communities. The groups are principally family businesses and individual home workers who, prior to working for Samantha, despite the fine quality of their workmanship, had never made Alpaca clothing products for the British and European markets.
Samantha visits her workers every year and ensures that they are fairly remunerated and work in good conditions.
About the material: This exclusive yarn by Samantha Holmes combines 70% finest micron baby alpaca with 30% bamboo viscose to create a supremely soft, silky yarn, less prone to pilling. It is harder wearing, drapes beautifully and while it remains uniquely insulating, it is more breathable, less “hairy” and therefore more trans-seasonal. It also washes beautifully.
