Details

Hand-knit textures revel in the yana (the Quechua word for "black") hue of this hat. Alfredo Falcon crafts the piece from 100% alpaca, its subdued design imbued with Peruvian style. The alpaca thrives at the extraordinarily high altitudes of the Andes, resulting in a fiber of unparalleled softness and warmth. A hip accessory for the winter wardrobe.

Theres nothing like alpaca, even better than cashmere. And when the hat is beautifully made and you have absolute confidence in the seller, its a cinch to be a great purchase--which it was. I have so much respect for the artisans who keep the ancient crafts alive. Thank you!

"Pleased"

Exactly what you would expect from an alpaca watch cap. Lightweight, soft and warm. Much lighter than my cashmere or wool caps. Fine, very fine workmanship. Would definitely recommend.

"soft and warm"

I bought this to go with a summer dress because of the matching color. The shawl is a perfect compliment, not to warm and not to chilly on cool summer nights.

Love the sweater. A few extra details with the sleeves and at the neck. Simple, but goes well with many things.
