    Story Behind the Art:
    Peru's Benita Cutipa says, 'I received a teaching degree in textiles. I wanted to do something that would help my country's development and empower our women, and I began organizing courses for mothers and farm wives. I also offer classes to people from marginalized neighborhoods, training them in handicrafts and forming cottage industries that would work with the region's natural resources.'

      100% alpacca.. very soft ( not as soft as cashmere, but as warm, if not warmer), this cardigan is very, very pretty. I think it's hand knit, and as such much cheaper than the equivalent cardigans available at 'the peruvian connection' site. I got lots of compliments, and I am very pleased with it.

      This is a beautiful sweater/jacket. I am a size 8 - I ordered the small size but it is a little too snug for wearing over a turtle neck or heavy weight T-shirt. I will return this and reorder in the medium size. I have been knitting for around 58 years - this is a beautiful garment with a very complicated stitch count. Clearly it was created with a lot of care and attention to detail. The sweater arrived wrapped in brown paper (inside the Overstock outer heavy plastic wrapping) and was glued at the edges - seems like a crafts person wanted to make sure it arrived intact. The wool is beautifully soft and the colors are very similar to the picture online. Great care was taken by the crafts person to finish the garment at a very high level with no loose strands of yarn.
