We love our super soft hooded triangle ponchos for babies and children. They make a unique and stylish statement, are super practical for changing and layering, and are - most importantly - comfortable, lightweight and warm.

They are ideal for the colder months or outdoor activities like football games, walks in the park, mountain outings or anytime your baby or child needs and extra layer of warmth in the great British outdoors. The hood means that the head can be protected from the weather too. They make a great car seat poncho and some parents have told us that they like to use these ponchos to put on their child when they get out of the swimming pool.

In order to manufacture an affordable, more durable and wearable poncho, its fibers need to contain a mixture of usually around 50% alpaca wool and 50% acrylic fibre such as Dralon, which is a high quality wool-like fibre that is softer than wool and helps to make the products less scratchy and less vulnerable to machine wash. Making an alpaca wool plaid by hand takes about a month, and the availability of alpaca wool is not always guaranteed. So the artisanos have found a way to increase comfort and durability as well as making the ponchos more affordable by swapping part of the thread with high quality Dralon fibre. It is hard to say the exact composition with handmade products like these, but we're trying to be as transparent as possible.
