Details

Felipe Berckholtz selects the warm, soft textures of alpaca in a warm light brown hue for this ruana. The ruana is woven with the wool from the season's first shear, termed baby alpaca and much sought after for its soft, lightweight warmth. The ancient Inca discovered the attributes of this fiber, reserving it for the exclusive use of the aristocracy.

My ruana arrived today. It is absolutely beautiful. Soft and warm in a lovely taupe color. I wont hesitate to buy another from this seller. Quick shipping too. It is the exact item shown in the photo. It is also nice and large and I am 59 so this is perfect. Olivia

This looks exactly the same as the picture.It is so soft and warm,a few people asked if it was a cashmere blend.The color has a lovely warmth tone to it it.I was originally looking for red then this color caught my eye.It is so well made.Next time I can afford another piece this is where I will look!! Be sure and look at the picture where the modal is wearing it.

I absolutely love my new ruana! Very finely made and of very soft baby alpaca. You can dress this up or down. Looks great belted too. A lot of care went into the making of this ruana, and I?ll be wearing this the rest of my life.
