Details

Peruvian Alfredo Falcon, who presents this warm and soft poncho, is a third-generation textile artisan. "When I was but a small child I learned from my parents the best weaving techniques – like me, they had learned them from their own parents," he states. Using a blend of alpaca, acrylic and wool, he crafts this cable-knit poncho in versatile black. Two buttons along the poncho's sides serve to create very loose-fitting arm holes, and all of the garment's borders have ribbing, including the crew neckline. With a relaxed fit, this poncho is just as comfortable to wear in the warmer indoors as it is in the nippy outdoors.

"This is now my Go To sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater is so soft in color and in hue. It is a warm and cozy soft gray stripe that goes with everything from my jeans to business casual. It would be great to take traveling as the one sweater you pack. I havent had it long enough to go on any trips but it will be traveling this fall! It is so well made.I was lucky enough to find it on sale but it is well worth the full price and then some.
