    Story Behind the Art:
    Peruvian artisan Alfredo Falcon says, 'When I was but a small child I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques. Like me, they had learned 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.'

      This is a beautiful sweater. I ordered a size larger after reading one of the reviews. Glad I did. It fit but sleeves were still a little tight. Color is very pretty and looks very close to picture on website. Unfortunately, I had to return the sweater. It is a little too scratchy for me. I tried layering it with long sleeve undie but still was scratchy. I really hated to send it back because it is a very nice sweater.

    • Alpaca Wool Nymph Sweater
      Verified Purchase

      When I pulled the sweater out of the packaging, I was so excited. It was a beautiful color. The wool was soft and felt fabulous. I ordered a large even though I often wear a medium. The Nymph sweater was labeled a large. When I tried to pull it on, I couldn't get my arms through the sleeves. I looked closely at the Nymph sweater sleeve and from the elbow to shoulder, the sleeve appeared small, so I checked the size again. Label said large. I tried to get the sweater on again. This time I forced my arms through the sleeves and pulled on the sweater. The body of the sweater was a good fit, but the sleeves were stretched so tight around my arms, I thought the seams were going to split before I could get the sweater off. I compared the arms of the Nymph sweater to other sweaters in the same order. The Nymph sleeves were significantly smaller and even with some stretching, the Nymph sleeves didn't come close to the size of the other larges. Actually, I bought 4 Alpaca Wool sweaters that day and two were wonderful and two suffered from "tiny bisceps" issues. But the Nymph was the worst. I hate the effort of returns, especially since I didn't save the original packaging. I tried on one of the other sweaters and it fit beautifully, so I made the assumpiton since all came from the same seller, they would be of like size. I plan to send this sweater back along with the other that doesn't fit and keeping the other two that fit just fine. Here's the takeaway: If you have tiny, skinny arms, this sweater may work for you. But if you are of average size, I don't recomend the Nymph sweater.

    • Nice Top
      Verified Purchase

      I was looking for a casual sweater that would be warm, but not bulky, and this fit the bill. If you're sensitive to wool, as I am, you may want to allow enough room to layer. I ordered one size up, and that gives me enough room to wear a silk lj top underneath. The color is close to as pictured, but a bit more green on the blue-green spectrum.
