"Petrol chakana : Soft, delicate and hopefully warm"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Its well made. Soft and yes, one has to wear it very carefully as while wearing one can feel the threads..wished there was an inner protective layer for protection..and as far as the color is concerned, i must say, its not exactly blue but a petrol color. So, if you are in an impression if it was a sky blue or a turquoise color, its not. Its petrol color. Soft nonetheless.

My step-son lived this sweater when I gave it to him in 2018. The beautiful piece continues to earn him compliments and is one of his favorites.

"Luscious Colors"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I love the color combination and this sweater is cozy and WARM. The only downside is that the upper edge of the collar is a tad itchy on my neck. I have solved this problem by wearing a cotton turtleneck underneath. Once again, this is a unique item that I know I will enjoy.
