Intriguing textures in an alpaca blend throw evoke Peru's great pre-Hispanic legacy when Inca weavings were more highly prized than gold. Cozy and comfortable, it comes to life on the looms of textile artist Nestor Yana. The talented artisan selects a soft, snowy white for this beautiful fringed manta blanket.

"Absolutely Beautiful Blanket"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I absolutely love this blanket. It?s so beautifully made, the pattern and color are gorgeous. It?s not too heavy but it is very warm. It looks great draped over a chair and it?s so comfy to curl up with at night. I would definitely recommend this throw blanket.

"Love the collar on this sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater has a nice fitted look. I ordered a small, I am petite. The fabric is a little itchy, but the sweater is roomy enough to wear a long sleeve shirt under it. I really love the collar! My only complaint is that the tag was sewn with plastic thread. I had to very carefully remove the tag so I wouldnt damage the sweater...I could not have worn this sweater with the tag on. No plastic thread please, it hurts!

Best Uses

  • Great for fall as a light cover, or winter indoors

"A delicate lacy look"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Very pretty and elegant without being too elegant to wear every day. The length in front keeps it from working as a normal day sweater, they can get in the way if your trying to do daily tasks. Great for the office - when were back in the office - great for sitting at my desk, keeping me warm in style.

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.
