Details

Flowers bloom on desert sands woven from an alpaca wool blend. Isidoro C'cahuantico creates the illusion on a generous ruana, a traditional Andean cloak. Hand-tied fringe edges the reversible wrap, and a matching scarf is attached to the neck. The cloak fastens with buttons covered with the same weave.

Every time I wear this cloak, I get compliments! Its soft, easy to clean, and perfect for the fall (when temperatures fluctuate--Im never too cold or too hot). Plus, did I mention its cute????

"On-Trend colors of the season!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just received this Ruana and I was DELIGHTED! It was gift-wrapped and packaged beautifully. The Ruana itself is light and made very well, not at all rough or rustic. It has a lovely smooth hand and the colors are true. I will buy from Novica again, for sure! Thank you to you very talented artisans! I was also surprised by how quickly I received this.

Best Uses

"Poncho"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I have ordered several items through Novica and I am always so pleased with the craftsmanship of the items I receive. Not only the item, but the packaging is always a work of art in itself. I love that my purchases help people. The only remark on this particular item is that I thought that it was 100% alpaca versus the blend (55% alpaca/45% acrylic).

Best Uses

  • Poncho for cold weather
