Great color and good value for money. I think it may run a little on the large size.

"Lovely Sweater !!!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I bought this sweater for my husband birthday, and he just love it! The color is just like you see in the picture (very beautiful), it is also highly well made, and the size is perfect!, I was worried before about the size due to in Europe the clothes tend to be in smaller sizes, but this sweater fits perfectly well! My husband is very happy with his gift!

"Unusual design in an unusual material."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

If you get tired of the same old colors and the same old designs in men?s clothing, here?s a great option. Unique materials with unique, thoughtful designs make these products very appealing. And you get to render assistance to artisans around the world who have never before had the opportunity to market their goods outside their community. This alpaca sweater is handsome, well made, and a one-of-a-kind design...like nothing else I?ve ever seen. It immediately became one of my favorites. True to size as well. Why rely on tired corporate clothing design when you can get something unique and fitted to your individual taste? You?re one-of-a-kind, let your clothing choices reflect who you really are, instead of conforming yet again to styles that never really suited you...while helping to put money into the pockets of people who deserve to make a decent living. Corporate billionaires don?t need any more of your money...or mine.

"I love this sweater! A new favorite."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater is soft, warm, true to size, and beautiful, just as pictured. It is lightweight and so comfortable. I love the fact that it is available in mens sizing but is not a boring plain color like so many sweaters in mens sizes sold in the US.
