Humahuaca, Jujuy, Argentina
To keep you warm on cold Andes nights......or just because they are beautiful. The sun faded colors of these alpaca blankets can be seen everywhere in the Jujuy province of Argentina (outside of Salta). The local family we were staying with used them on her horses, for sitting on, sleeping with, you name it. The markets are filled with stacks of their warm designs, and if you are lucky enough to have room in your pack, you can bring a bit of it home with you.
