    Story Behind the Art

    Nestor Yana hails from the Puno region of the Peruvian highlands, renowned for good quality alpaca and sheep wool. He has been dedicated to the textile arts for more than 25 years - it has been a family trade for generations. Yana and his siblings learned the different weaving and knitting techniques from their parents. Together they sold their wares at local markets until eventually they were able to acquire modern machinery, which in turn allowed them to develop newer designs. Compared to wool, alpaca fibers are stronger, resilient and of good elasticity.

  • Beautiful, stylish cardigan

    I have worn this cardigan once. It is not what I'd call a sweater as it has functional buttons and closes like a cardigan. First, the picture does not accurately depict the color of the cardigan. It's a beautiful purple color! The length of cardigan is good for me. It's not too long and I usually wear petite sizing. The quality of the wool is excellent though I haven't cleaned the cardigan yet. It is pretty soft and not scratchy. There is a knitted belt made of the same wool as the cardigan. I bought the medium size and it fits perfectly. I think this cardigan would be good for layering as well as a wearing as a top. It is a little dressy as it has the coconut shell buttons and fancy knitting around the neckline and the cardigan drapes well that you can wear it with top buttons undone so it looks like a henley top. The only odd thing I noticed about the cardigan is about three inches from the bottom of the side seams, the cardigan juts out, almost as if its taking account of one's hips but mine aren't as pronounced as the cardigan suggests and it makes the sides look a little strange. If this came in additional colors, I would probably buy another cardigan. I am very happy with this garment so far and consider it good value.

    It's a beautiful sweater. It fits a little loose. I didn't give it a five star because it's a little itchy.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very Nice
    • How accurate was the sizing? Accurate
  • Alpaca Sweater

    I ordered this sweater as a gift for my mom. She and I both were very pleased with the quality and value. It is very soft and the color is beautiful. The buttons are very unusual and add to its appeal. It seemed to run just a tiny bit small. She usually wears a medium but I think with the fact it buttons, is longer than a normal sweater, and has a drawstring, she would have been happier had it been a bit larger.
