ITEM#: 12066346

This handmade creation is offered in partnership with NOVICA, in association with National Geographic.

Designed by artist Nestor Yana, this blissfully warm cloak features delicate, hand-crocheted floral borders. The poncho includes a matching scarf that flows gracefully from the back of the collar.

Product Features:
  • Alpaca wool is considered a luxury fiber because it is as soft as cashmere
  • It is as durable as wool, and the fleece is extraordinarily light and warm
  • Alpaca fiber is naturally water resistant and wrinkles less than wool, which makes it ideal for travel
  • Soft to the touch
  • Dry clean only
  • Cloak dimensions: 83 inches wide x 31 inches long
  • Scarf dimensions: 7.1 inches wide x 40 inches long

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.

  • This product is not 100% wool

    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.

  • Warm and lovely

    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.

  • Classic Look!

    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!

  • LOVELY BUT HUGE!!!

    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.

  • Product Returned

    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.
