"Exquisite"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater is absolutely beautiful. The colours are earthy and vibrant, and the wool is still so soft and warm after many washes. Shipping was super quick to Australia too. Do not be put off by the price, it is 100% worth it and I recommend this or any other sweater by Fernando. Love it!

"What a fantastic jumper"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This jumper is beautifully made and is clearly an authentic Peruvian garment made with love and care. Alpaca wool is a clever temperature regulating wool. I wore it this year in Hokkaido - the northern island in Japan in temperatures down to minus 20 degrees C! It is a pleasure to wear and I have worn it in the UK Winter too.

"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.
