Details

Those who want to hit the slopes in Peru will need to cope with significant altitude and long treks or helicopter rides to mountaintop glaciers. If you'd prefer to leave such adventures to extreme ski mountaineers, you can still channel an après ski mood with this men's sweater, featuring stylized Inca motifs and snowflakes--la nieve in Spanish. The pullover sweater is hand knit from pure Peruvian alpaca.

"Just Right"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have always run cooler than my peers. As a consequence I am used to bringing several layers for one day because I tend to overdress. I anticipate running cold, which is usually the case, but at some point throughout the day I shed a layer or two because I over estimated how cold I would be. This sweater is perfect! Its light weight and it breaths beautifully, so it I dont feel like Im starting to sweat. I can push the sleeves up a bit and thats all it takes to cool off. Pull them down when Im a little chilly, and I still feel the sweater breathing nicely, but its warm and toasty too. Also, Im a woman, I know its a mens sweater, technically. I ordered a medium and it fits a little loosely, which I wanted. In unisex Im about a small medium, I have broad shoulders (16.5), 51 tall and 140lbs. Im wearing it at work right now with some yoga leggings and boots. Also, its not itchy at all. Very soft.

"ALPACA SNOWFLAKE SWEATER"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I really love this Alpaca Snowflake sweater. The sweater is very soft and light but I can wear it outside without a coat when it is in the 30s and 40s and still be warm. I can also wear the sweater inside and not be too warm. The sweater has a great design and great color. The only downside is that you have to be careful putting it on and taking it off not to catch the threads on the inside of the sweater with the buttons on your shirt.

"Could be more perfect in a TALL size"

This sweater is well made and beautiful. I only wish the sleeves could be made longer for taller men. Can you perhaps start carrying sweaters in taller sizes?

"Wonderful Warm Sweater"

Love the look and feel of this sweater. It is a real work of art.. Only concern is that it seems to run a little small. A perfect sweater otherwise.

"Beautiful Sweater"

I purchased this for my husband. The quality and the softness is unbelievable. My husband likes it because it is a light weight sweater but quite warm because of the alpaca yarn. You cannot go wrong with this sweater and it also has a little give.

"Looked at it for years - finally bought it!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

As a machine knitter, I knew it was a good price. Its also extremely well made.Although the sleeves are a bit long on me, as its sized for a man, I absolutely love it. You should really market it as unisex. Just have to watch out for the floats - fortunately Im quite skilled in repairing pulls.

"great looking sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this is the second one I have ordered. the first looked and felt great-no itch. the fit was roomy which I liked. sadly, the first time it was washed it shrank. washed it according to directions, hand wash, cold water, dried flat. this one will go to the dry cleaners. if it shrinks after dry cleaning I will post a down graded review. just a caution to readers of this.

Best Uses

  • cold, blustery days

"good cold weather sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

this is a very heavy, well-made sweater. with a medium weight jacket it will keep me warm in temps down in the twenties. did not shrink upon washing. only reason i did not rate it five stars was it is very itchy. i would recommend wearing it only over a long sleeved shirt.

Best Uses

  • cold weather wear
