Over 21 square yards of custom made fabric is handmade into this unique Albrea regular sized throw, creating a naturally weighted feeling that you have to feel to believe! Albreas are sewn by either the designers themselves or by local artisans in the USA. The patent pending stitching patterns, sewn with elastic thread, create a unique puckering stretchable fabric, designed to make an extremely soft, luxurious throw. One of the goals of the designers is to calm the user in a simple and natural way. Using trapped air for warmth, it also creates a rich texture that is beautiful, but also allows for stretching. An Albrea is a very unusual and comforting throw that actually hugs you when using it, reducing stress.
