Story Behind the Art
'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.'

I wanted an oversized, brown, men's V-neck wool sweater and this sweater fits the bill perfectly. I am a petite 5'3" and this sweater is slouchy and a bit long on me, but not too large or bulky. The sleeves are long, but not terribly so and I can fold them back or push them up. The alpaca wool is carded smooth, not hairy like most imported alpaca sweaters I have seen.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
Please tell us about the quality of the product. Soft, warm, gorgeous sweater. Rich, deep color.
I had ordered the blue version of the sweater but it was too big for my fiance. We both liked this sweater so much that (despite no more blue sweaters being in stock), I returned that one for a smaller size in the 'Woodlands' color. I'm very happy with my purchase & the sweater definitely looks and feels more expensive than what it's listed as.
The description does not tell you its only 50% alpaca. The other 50% is polyester. Would have paid more for a 100% alpaca but wasn't told this was a 50-50 blend. Sweater fits and looks good but lacks that 100% alpaca feel.
I bought it for a gift and received it the next day. Craftsmanship looks great. Color is beautiful. Only thing is the sweater looks a little short for a man so I'll be thinking about giving it to someone else....
