Details

Ana Fernandez of Peru designs this knit cardigan of sumptuously soft 100% alpaca wool. The long sweater features stripes of blue and green, a subtle diamond stitch pattern, and a button-front closure with coconut shell buttons etched with a floral motif.

"For me, designing is a fusion of ideas," comments the artisan. "I blend fashion trends with my own favorite sources of inspiration, which are Victorian textiles and our Peruvian culture. I love designing apparel of alpaca wool and cotton because this really makes a contribution to society. It lets me give jobs to local people, especially women who want to get ahead and move to central Peru seeking a better future."

"Superbly crafted! Lovely hues! Alpaca is a FAV!!"

I love, love, love the colors in this alpaca yarn!! The design worried me a little bit, though I love it I am not as svelte as the model pictured, but I discovered the design does well for curvy women too! Thank you for your expertise!!
