"Wonderful seasonal transition cloak"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Just got my order and this cloak is sooo much prettier than the image shows. It has two solid panels that go down the front (left, right) and a solid panel that goes across the entire back. The crocheted borders go around every edge so it drapes over the solid panel at the neckline. The material is so soft and the quality is awesome! This is going to be my new go-to for cool summer nights and those transitional seasonal days. Thanks!!

"Gorgeous!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Ebony Whisper, 100% alpaca ruana cloak is beautiful and even elegant when worn. The front wide border that goes around the neck hangs longer than the back...thats part of the style. Substantial looking, not see through, thin. Length, fit good for measurements of 36/34D, 29.5 waist, 35.5 hips, 130lbs., 54 height. Looks good worn with a dress or slacks. Waiting for spring or summer evenings or fall in New York City to wear cloak.

"This was my second purchase from this seller."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This was a beautiful Ruana. My first was a lovely taupe and my most recent a vibrant red. All 3 items have been top quality and I have been delighted with each wrap/ruana. I am 59 so I love the length. If you are under 56 this may be too long unless this is what you are looking for.
