"Love, Love, Love it"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the softest most comfortable sweater I have ever owned. Versatile enough in weight that I can wear it when its 43 degrees, keep it on at 70 degrees. I loved it so much I ordered one in brown. I will recommend this site to my friends that need sweaters.

Best Uses

  • Great for people that live in climates like Arizona where the temperature can fluctuate 35 degrees in a day

"this is my second one!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Last year, we had a new puppy. He tore apart a gray 100% alpaca cardigan sweater we got in Peru in 1998. My husband ordered me this sweater in gray, as a gift. I LOVE it. This year, I decided having another in black would be just perfect. The style, the feel, the comfort and the price are all most amazing. Thank you, Artist and Novica for making the best sweaters around also affordable.

"Very nice sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Wonderful drape, so soft, and lightweight but also warm. Super versatile - goes with dresses, skirts, dress pants, but also jeans. The collar is especially pretty - soft folds gathered around the neck and open edge of the cardigan. So happy with this very reasonably-priced purchase!

"Lovely sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The sweater size S/M is perfect for a 57, 135-lb person who likes her clothing to fit loosely but not over-sized. The weight of the sweater is just right for those cool days or chilly work places. A lovely sweater with a nice feel to the yarn. I purchased 3 - black, brown & gray.

"Perfect in every way"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have just received this sweater and since it is hot it will be a few more months until I wear it. I purchased it to go with jeans and for casual wear but it would also work well as business casual. It is well made, soft and warm yet light weight. It will be perfect for early fall in Maine.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Nestor's mother is from Juliaca in the Peruvian altiplano. She taught Nestor to weave and he, in turn, has taught his wife, his two children and his employees. He finds his inspiration in traditional Peruvian art and constantly searches art and history books to refine his craft.

Nestor is not only an employer, he is an important member of his community. He continues to grow his business providing full-time employment to 23 workers and part-time employment to others when he can. He recognizes his good fortune and shares with those less fortunate whenever the opportunity arises. The income from Nestor's Novica sales not only supports his wife, son and elderly parents — it helps to support others in his community. Many of Nestor's employees were homeless. Nestor not only provides them with work, he provides a place to stay or live.

Nestor loves his community and does what he can to help it. He employs disabled elderly craftswomen to create the unique hand finishes applied to his designs. These women would be unable to care for themselves without the support Nestor gives them.

Nestor was recently diagnosed with a calcaneal bone spur, a condition is often brought about by repetitive motion. He has been forced to modify his daily routine, however he continues to design and craft fine alpaca apparel in his workshop.

Nestor Yana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy yarn in the colors of this season's fashion trends for production.

Nestor's persistence and determination have paid off. He not only is able to support himself but has grown his workshop and now offers work to others.

Nestor pays for his son to attend the university and employs other artisans who pay for their own children's education.

Nestor still provides for his son who is in the university.
