Story Behind the Art: Paola Cuentas says,'after finishing school, my first job was in a small workshop that knitted alpaca sweaters. I was so impressed by the skills of the people who could knit, by the ability of the women who did the finishing touches, and I discovered a new focus for my career. I met an English designer who got me started in the different techniques for developing a design. The work that I do has become a personal project. My main motivation is that what began as only an idea has taken form and becomes more real every day. This excites me and impels me to move ahead.'

I have not worn this shawl as yet....I am looking forward to it. I'm waiting for spring when I won't need a coat. Or I will give it as a gift. It is very nice, it is a plain nice simple shawl in a neutral color you can wear with anything.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? it is lighter than depicted more like wheat in color
Please tell us about the quality of the product. I thought it would be heavier. It has a nice lightweight comfortable delicate feel to it. Great to wear for dinner or evening walk or instead of a sweaater at the office.
How accurate was the sizing? Appears to be a tad smaller than pictured but it is still a good size.
this shaw is really pretty..and soft...but when I opened the package to look at it there was a missed stitch...and as a result there is a hole....right in the middle....?...now what!....where is the quality control?
