Does it have buttons on front or is it open down the front? Does it pull over your head like a poncho??
Other reviewers have said that it's an awfully long poncho, and they're right. I'm 5'7" and the bottom of the fringe touches me mid-shin. I've worn it in drizzly rain and single-digit temps and it's been plenty warm. It repels light rain and the length means it doesn't let lots of cold air near the upper body. It IS itchy around the neck if your neck is uncovered. I wear shirts with collars in bad weather anyway, so it works out. The only complaint is that the fringe sometimes catches on things, but that's not the poncho's fault. I'm just afraid of tearing out the crochet trim....

Story Behind the Art:
Nestor Yana hails from the Puno region of the Peruvian highlands, renowned for good quality alpaca and sheep wool. He has been dedicated to the textile arts for over 25 years. Yana and his siblings learned the different weaving and knitting techniques from their parents. When he first began to weave, he worked on rustic looms he built. He sold them at local markets until eventually they were able to acquire modern machinery, which in turn allowed him to develop newer designs.

beautiful, but mostly synthetic fiber, I was very excited to get this, but I only was very let down when I saw the tag was different from the material listed on the site, now I have to find another one and return that one.Read More

As stated prior, this is a classically timeless look for a night out on the town. SO warm and the Alpaca Wool is rich and soft. Absolutely in love with this! My only concern would be, I believe it to be for the taller women (I am 5'9") otherwise it might swallow a shorter person. For me, sheer perfection!Read More
This cape is beautifully made, but was HUGE on me. If you are 5"4" or under, don't get---it will swallow you. Material was very scratchy around around my neck. I returned it.Read More
I chose the poncho because of the color. The one I received was a light tan color, not at all as it looks on the website. I returned it.Read More
This poncho is a beautiful light tan, which is what the description says....it's a great neutral color that will go with anything! The design is beautiful and the material is soft and warm. The crochet adds a unique feminine flare. I am very pleased!Read More
