    Story Behind the Art:

    Nestor Yana hails from the Puno region of the Peruvian highlands, renowned for good quality alpaca and sheep wool. 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, built by himself along with other family members. Together they sold their wares at local markets until eventually they were able to acquire modern machinery, which in turn allowed them to develop newer designs.

    • Alpaca Wool Jacket

      This garnet is well made and VERY warm. I purchased it for my husband for traveling up north (he's a native Floridian who gets cold easily when we travel back to my home state). It definitely does the trick...keeps him warm without a lot of bulky layers. The zipper is questionable- he says it is hard for a right-handed person to close the zipper, it is also a composite or plastic zipper so I wonder about the longevity of this closure. I believe it can be replaced when needed. The sweater itself is well constructed and should last forever it seems. I would purchase again.

    • An excellent value

      I bought this sweater for my somewhat finicky and clothes-conservative hubby. He really loves it. This sweater is made of high quality material and is climate adaptable.

    • alpaca sweater

      As I have purchased this for a christmas gift I still don't know how it will fit that person, but it does appear to be a beautiful sweater and it is very soft and certainly will be warm without a lot of bulk.
