Details

Fernando Cano designs a stylized version of the Andean cross, known as a chakana, for this handsome gray cardigan. Detailed in beige, the chakana represents the link between this world and the world above. Featuring cedar wood buttons and lapel v-neck, the jersey stitch cardigan is knit of alpaca, a warm, lightweight and soft fleece worn in the Andes since the days of the Inca Empire.

the sweater is great. I had several people at work say they loved it. The only problem is when i took if off a button from my shirt pulled out 18 inches of yarn from the sleeve. not sure how i will repair but will need to.

"Lovely sweater but runs small"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My husband loved the pattern and the feel and quality but it was too small. Good deal for our grandson but I had to order an extra large to replace the one I bought for my husband for Christmas.For comparison purposes, he wears a 42 regular suit and usually buys large shirts.

"Perfect sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is such a beautiful sweater. Craftmanship is impeccable. Love the color combo, I got the plum. Fits perfectly. I got a M. Im 56 and about 120 lbs. The sleeves are perfect length. Highly recommend this sweater or anything Cano makes. Well worth the price.

These are super soft, well made, and just awesome. My wrists and hands get cold the most. These are super helpful in the mornings when its cold outside and I have to drive my kids to school.

"even better than id hoped"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

stunning colors, lovely soft fabric, excellent craftsmanship. exactly as pictured, yet even nicer in real life. since i have long arms, i am thrilled that the arm length is longer than standard, just as others have described. i might have been mildly surprised by the lightweight gauge if i hadnt been forewarned; id also love this sweater in a heavier weight. i was pleasantly surprised at the quick delivery, despite covid &c -- i received the package (in MA) a mere 2 weeks after ordering. and although i thought id checked the not-a-gift box, it was beautifully gift-wrapped.

I got this for a present for my son. I wish I could give it to him now! This is beautifully made, soft and sturdy but not the least bit scratchy.

"Beautiful colors!"

Finely made, with gorgeous colors and intricate design. Will be thin enough to wear easily under my coat sleeves, or even within my gloves to keep my wrists and upper arms warm on freezing days.
