Alfredo Falcon of Peru designs a beautiful way to stay warm in style with this reversible knit ruana made from luxuriously soft and warm 100% baby alpaca, the finest fleece from the first shearing of the season.

"So lovely, so fine."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It looks delicate, but its not. Its made so well and strong, so soft and warm when on, its a pleasure to wear. Its interesting that the material is first cool to the touch, and only warms up when wearing - reminds me of linen how its cool but insulating. I love the artists choice of pattern, weight, everything.

"The perfect early fall sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The detail is absolutely gorgeous, I have gotten compliments on it! I really like the fact that although it has alpaca, its a lightweight sweater. It is very comfortable and if you want added warm, definitely wear a cami or thin tee under it. It falls nicely on the waist (Im 411, 140lbs) and the fabric has a nice give. The sleeves fall a little past your wrists, which I really appreciate, and it doesnt make you look like a little kid wearing a grownups sweater. I have hand-washed it and it retains its shape lovely. It really is a work of art. I love mine!

"WOW"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is my second alpaca poncho by Alfredo. They are well-made, gorgeous and drape beautifully. I am 52 and looks great on a short person but not too long. It is light-weight but very warm. I get compliments every time I wear it which is often. I even wear it around the house when chilled. Lovely garment.
