"One of my favorites, always get compliment"

High quality workmanship, unique design and medium weight - not too thin and not too thick. Striking color scheme, even more attractive in person. Will never find this design in a department store. One of a kind.

"Beautiful and comfortable."

Beautiful design and colors. Very comfortable. Must be careful not to snag the reverse of the design and pull the threads. Use a crochet needle to pull threads back through.

"Beautiful, functional, softer than cashmere "

Visited Peru in 2013 and began my Alpaca sweater collection with this beauty. I simply love this sweater! One can dress it up or down and the design fits every occasion, or non-occasion. The pattern is eye catching and I love the curving at the bottom; something unique from all the rest. I've always gotten compliments on this sweater and love the variety of designs the artist incorporates in all his work!

"LOVELY SWEATER"

The colors and workmanship of this sweater are just lovely. The reason I give it less than 5 stars is because of the shape and fit. Neckline is odd and higher in the front than it is in the back and sort of pushes my throat and is scratchy. Also the armholes are small. Sleeves themselves are comfortable, but not enough room in the armholes. I am 5'6", 134 lbs. I ordered a medium. I think the large would be too big. Overall the Med is a good fit except the tight armholes. If you have small shoulders and slender arms, this sweater would fit perfectly.
