Design Story

Blacksaw was born with the desire to create meaningful possessions worthy of taking up space in your life. The brand was conceptualized after several years of travelling when husband and wife duo Kyle and Steph Taylor came up with the vision behind Blacksaw and the idea of meaningful possessions. It all starts with the Alpaca. Blacksaw Alpaca are scattered all over the highlands of Peru, roaming free and are individually owned by the villages that raise them until it is time for the shearing process.

When the alpaca hair is fully grown, a highly skilled team visits each community to kindly and humanely shear the animals. Shearing Alpacas is very important to animals’ welfare as they do not shed their fleece. It is essential to shear them annually to prevent overheating in the summer months. The fibres are then sorted by colour and micron (The more delicate the hair, the lower the micron, which means softer fibres) and put on the truck to be delivered to the spinning facility, where they are spun into strong, consistent threads.

Baby Alpaca is super soft and luxurious at 22.5 Microns, whereas regular Alpaca can be much courser at 31 Microns. Once the fibres are professionally sorted, they spin each colour and quality into a spool of yarn. There are 22 natural colours of Alpaca hair, beautiful in their natural un-dyed colours. The natural shades range from blacks through brown-black, white, silver-greys, and rose-greys. Finally, every single blanket and throw is looked over by a professional in our facility. Here, any misplaced fibre is pulled, and any imperfection is corrected before labelling and packaging the product to be shipped.
