Coffee Beanies knitting is a way out of poverty for a hard-working Burundian family. In fact, when a knitter makes a shawl a week, she triples the chances of the whole family making it.

In our fluffy alpaca wool blend, we've made a fluffy shawl that you can match with the other Coffee Beanies items. You can choose whether you're more into matchy colours or whether you think it's more fun to cross with, say, a pair of hats in some of the other lovely colours and surprise yourself and your surroundings with a cool personal twist. As of this year, the alpaca wool blend has been turned green because the 18% polyamide is recycled. Alpaca wool tempers better than any other wool.

Style your shawl with the tip at the front or back, depending on your mood and look today. You're unique and we'll do everything we can to make you ooze personality so others dare too.

Target: approx. target: Height=190 cm. and width: 52 cm. (Can vary a lot - but the fit is not as crucial as if it was a hat, so we recommend that you just write to us if you want the exact measurements of height and length in the color you want).

Washing instructions: we always recommend hand washing and tumble drying. But otherwise you can easily get it clean by letting it hang in the steam after a shower. The wool is super good for cleaning itself if the shawl just needs a refresh.

This gorgeous shawl is one of the latest additions to the knitters' repertoire. Knitters have a lot to learn, so they can become more skilled each year they knit with Coffee Beanies. We are impressed with how professional they are and how much they love learning new skills. Now they can also hand-dye the yarn, so the products exude even more designer look and are nice enough to arm with the biggies in the fashion world.

Imagine if all the clothes we bought were slowfashion. Made without machines and with green wool and even by people in the poorest countries in the world.

A hand-knitted shawl is self-help

For the shawl to be included in our range, it must meet certain requirements:

  • there are many "labour-hours" in the product which gives the woman a lot of work.
  • there is new learning, so the woman can become more skilled and start selling things for the home market herself.
  • it's a fairly easy recipe so we can invite more new women on board for a job.
  • will it disturb the balance at home unnecessarily or can she continue to look after her children and do field work in the mornings.
