Nestor Yana hails from the Puno region of the Peruvian highlands, renowned for 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 learned the different weaving and knitting techniques from his parents. When he first began to weave, he worked on rustic looms that he and family members built. Eventually they acquired modern machinery, which in turn allowed them to develop newer designs. Alpaca wool is considered a luxury fiber, being as soft as cashmere, with the luster of silk, and as durable as wool, with extraordinarily light, warm fleece. It is reported that alpaca wool is five times warmer than sheep's wool! Alpaca fiber is naturally water-resistant and wrinkles less than wool.

The sweater was very itchy. I shirt must be worn underneath. I was disappointed.Read More
I would somewhat recommend this, but with the forewarning that 1) it doesn't look as nice as it appears in the photo (torso is somewhat short and arms are pretty long), 2) it is not as plush as it seems (thin layer of wool), and 3) is fairly warm and scratchy compared to most wool sweaters I have. Am not hugely disappointed in the purchase; but, had this been the sweater I had expected, I would have gotten several of them, and in various colors (but, the one I bought will be enough).Read More
