Details

The ancient glyphs of the Inca Empire inspire Fernando Cano to design this elegant turquoise green sweater. He knits it with alpaca wool featuring abstract glyphs on the cuffs and waist. Alpaca wool has been prized in the Andean region for centuries thanks to its warm and light weight fleece.

"Perfect sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a gift for my mother in law, who is in her 80's - the fit is flattering, and so is the color - material is so soft - she loves it, and it looks just wonderful on her. The size small was perfect for a petite woman - I would guess that she would normally wear a small in most of her tops, so the sizing was right on.

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.
