COLLECTION: Opaque Sheer
Native reeds from the Peruvian coastline are used by local peoples to create the Caballitos de Totora, the country’s traditional fishing vessels, which also inspired the open-weave Prima Alpaca Totora Opaque Sheer. The jute-like texture gives Totora a rustic sensibility that pairs unexpectedly with its exquisitely soft hand.

Prima Alpaca is always in stock.
Because our Prima Alpaca textiles are woven from natural – and not synthetic – fibers, they have characteristic irregularities that are considered part of their charm. The variation in dark and light fibers adds depth and movement to otherwise what would be a flat and dull surface. They also make each yard subtly distinctive and special.
