"Beautiful sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I LOVE this sweater and get lots of compliments on it. Much more interesting than the usual mass market stuff, and it's fun to buy from high-quality artisans. I have now bought about 5 of Mr. Cano's sweaters and seek out his work on the Novica website.

"My Mother's new special occasion sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I had bought my Mom a sweater from Normal Thompson 30 years ago that she would wear around the holidays. No more! As soon as I saw this one I knew she would love it, and she does! It is absolutely gorgeous, true to the colors shown and sized perfectly. Oh so soft and supurb quality! Well worth the price.

Every time I wear this beautiful creation people compliment me and ask where I purchased it. I wear it with great pride, as I know I helped an artisan exhibit his/her handiwork.

"My husband loves it, thank you!"

I bought this as a surprise for my husband, and he really loves it. He keeps telling me how soft it feels against his skin, much better than sheeps wool. It will definitely become a favourite.

My husband absolutely loves this sweater. He has worn it many times. I am allergic to wool but this sweater does not cause itching when I hug him.
