This Andean purple sweater is wonderful. The color is gorgeous (and true to the color shown in the photo). The drape is lovely. Beautifully made!

"This is a great cardigan"

Im very happy with the sweater. Its a nice dusky purple color, the fit is exactly what I expected, and its lightweight but warm. As a tall person, sometime sleeve length is a problem, but the length on this is perfect. I love how it curls at the hems, and the slight taper from the back to the front, along the bottom hem. Simple but elegant.

"My New Fav"

I LOVE this sweater! The cotton makes it a great choice on a cool summer night and the alpaca keeps it warm and cozy when it is cold. It is light weight and thin, making it incredibly comfortable. It fits easily under a coat or jacket without adding bulk. The muted purple also compliments many different colored outfits and the styling is very flattering to many body types. (Family members have borrowed it and it looks great on everyone!) This NOVICA find is definitely my new favorite sweater!

"Stunning!"

Exactly as pictured. Perfect puple! Arrived quickly. Perfect weight for layering or by itself over a tank or tee.. Im a size 8-10-12 (women know what this means!) and the medium was just right. My arms are relatively slender, so if you carry your weight there, the sleeves might be snug.

"Cosy and attractive"

The Andean Purple sweater is so cosy. Just the thing for a too cool office or for weekend wear. The blend of 30% alpaca and 70% cotton is very nice and the shawl color will keep your neck warm. Beautifully made and looks like it will last through the cooler months for many years. Well worth the price.

"Beautiful, warm, and cozy"

Wonderful, rich dusky purple; drapes and hangs beautifully; warm and cozy! Highly recommend. Wonderful craftsmanship. I am between M and L and I ordered the L (because the M was not available at time of order). Fit is very nice and since it is designed to wear open, going up one size seemed to work just fine.

"Soft and Snuggly"

I love this sweater because I can wrap up in it with a great cup of tea on a cold winter evening. It feels so snuggly. When I wear it at work, it makes me feel so comfy that work just flies by. This is definitely a feel good sweater...

"Elegant or Casual warmth"

Sweater runs large (I bought one in black in XL which is my normal size, but bought the purple in L for a neater look). The purple is a rich colour. Very warm but light weight; dress up or dress down. Perfect for travelling. Washes great in cold water (I dried my black one in the dryer to shrink it - only shrank a little). Love my purchases!!

Best Uses
  • travelling, evening out, office
