Paola Cuentas combines legendary traditions with modern day trends for the design of this stylish hoodie sweater. It is knitted of 100% baby alpaca, the season's first shear and a fleece highly coveted during the Inca Empire. The sweater's design includes ribbed cuffs and waist, a central pocket and warm snug hood. The sweater's beige hue is that of the natural wool.

"didn't fit well"
I loved the style of this when I saw it pictured–the hood, pocket, trim, warmth and natural-colored yarn. However it did not fit me well. I'm 5'51/2, about 125 lbs, and got a size medium (which is the same I've ordered in other Novica sweeaters) The width was fine, but it was somewhat too short (and seemed much shorter than it looks in the photo). I would have been okay with that but the pocket hit me in a very werid place–right across the lower part of my bust (no matter how much I tried to pull it down or stretch it), it definitley needs to lower! Also the armholes didn't seem like they were cut right, the sweater pulled across my upper back even though overall elsewhere it was not too tight. Despite the problems, I loved everything else about it so decided not to return it at the time. But I wish I had as unfortunately I was not at all comfortable the few times I tried to wear it. I ended up donating it to a women's shelter, where I hope someone is happily wearing it.
