The Inca Valley sweater is a beautiful green with patterned detail around the neck and cuffs. The patterned details around the neck really pull the eye away from any tummy flaws. I have this sweater in two colors and would love to have it in every color possible.
The sweater is very durable and even though I've worn this sweater more than 10 time already, there is no pilling or fuzzies.
Another good detail is the rounded slits up the side from the bottom. This detail keeps the sweater from riding up and I think it is a very flattering look. When sitting, the sweater doesn't start creeping up my back.
Awesome sweater. Hmmm, I think I'll go see if they have more colors than just the green and magenta that I've already bought. I really would like to have this sweater in every color!

I ordered this as a Christmas gift for my sister without ever seeing the actual product. It arrived promptly and the size she had requested was a great fit. It is very well constructed and the 100% alpaca wool is very soft and comfortable. She was very pleased with her gift.
