Details

Artisan Waldo Berrios, a Huancayo, Peru, native, takes his inspiration for the decoration on the front of this black and taupe knit ruana from the geometric fretwork characteristic of pre-Columbian Andean cultures. Working with a blend of soft alpaca, acrylic, and wool, he crafts the wrap with a versatile design. A button covered with crocheted material provides closure for the ruana so that it can be worn with a V-shaped neckline, but the garment can also be rotated so that the button sits on one shoulder and the wrap has a boat neckline. No matter the styling, the fabulous ruana makes for lightweight and warm outerwear.

I enjoy this ruana immensely. It is less warm than I thought--but there are plenty of indoor times for wearing in winter. Always feels elegant.
