'My name is Alfredo Falcon. I was born in the capital of Peru on August 7, 1968. When I was but a small child I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques--like me, they had learned them 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. I would like for the world to receive through my work high-quality products, with modern colors and traditional motifs. I hope you enjoy them! Thank you very much, my friends.'

Guess I' am picky, but was disappointed that when I picked it up and felt it, it felt like an acrylic sweater, not alpaca, like the sweaters I saw in Peru. Had I known, wouldn't have bought it. Guess it's my fault for not reading the fine print, but I do think it's a little misleading calling it an Alpaca sweater, then having in the fine print that it is actually 50 percent Acrylic. THe "hand crafting" thing is 100 percent malarkey.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yup
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Poor quality material
This was advertised as artisan made and wool! It's clearly a machine made acrylic sweater that you could get at any department store. I am soooo disappointed. National Geographic should be ashamed! It's shiny too, which makes it kinda cheap looking. I am sure if you are looking for a thin, shiny, acrylic sweater, this would be to your liking. If you are looking for a quality, heavy wool, peruvian sweater, then this is not it!
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes but shiny
Please tell us about the quality of the product. not as advertised, machine made, average
How accurate was the sizing? It's massive! Ridiculously big. It's super wide but the shoulders are not especially big. So if you have a broad upper body, but are not enormously heavy, this sweater will look ridiculous..
This is a nice sweater. It has a nice shape, it's true to size and my husband likes it and it looks well on him. I would love to have an option to purchase one made with 100% wool and/or natural fibers instead of being a 50/50 blend with acrylic, though.
