Story Behind the Art: Peruvian artisan Alfredo Falcon says, 'When I was but a small child I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques ? like me, they had learned from their own parents. This makes us a family entirely devoted to the world of textiles, and we have been for generations. Nowadays I combine weaving by hand and on classic machinery, remaining true to Inca and colonial motifs.'

pretty style, made well, but ad promised to be as soft as cashmere. WRONG
I have to wear a long sleeve scoop neck cream shirt underneath to be able to stand wearing it. For the price I paid for it, I would NEVER purchase Alpaca Wool again. Like wearing steel wool :(
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? no more beige that cream white
