"Lovely practical wrap"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautifully made ruana that is perfect for wrapping yourself up in to read a book, watch a movie or browse the internet. I've also thrown it over my casual wear to take the dogs for hike or just go out and get the mail on a cold day. It has an almost medieval monastic quality that I really like as I'm not a flashy dresser.

"Love Love Love This"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

One of the best items I have ever purchased anywhere - a signature piece of clothing. Surprisingly lightweight, warm, versatile; dramatic but not pretentious. I'm 5'10" and wear an XL t-shirt and it completely envelops me, yet it also looks great on smaller friends. It is long enough to double as a blanket in a pinch. Because the quality is so nice and because I smoke cigarettes, I was afraid to wear it for several months, thinking I would just wear it for special occasions, but once I started wearing it, I never stopped. It does not absorb odors very much and does not have to be washed frequently. This would be a great item to carry while traveling. I carry it everywhere I go - it folds up small enough to do that. If I could afford it, everyone I love would own one of these beautiful wraps! Thank you for your craftsmanship!

Best Uses

  • lightweight warmth, security blanket, dramatic yet humble look

"My 5 th purchase of a 5th tuna from this seller."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have recently received my 5 th ruana and it didn?t disappoint. I?m tall and this is a perfect length for me at 5?9?. My absolute favorite was a taupe one that was pure alpaca but the months made a huge hole in it over the summer. I wish I could replace it but this seller has not used this wool since. I am very happy with all my purchases from this seller. Reliable quality and fast shipping. 5 stars!

"Love this!"

I love the way it drapes across my shoulders and I can wrap it around myself for added warmth. The wrap is very well-made and I wear it a lot without any signs of wear or pilling of the material.
