"Beautifully made, but too large"

It is hard to buy clothing that fits on line, but I liked my soft alpaca shawls from Raquel and Gregor so much that I decided to risk it. Unfortunately it was made for someone much bigger than I am, so I had to send it back. I hope it found someone who could fill it up, it is really lovely.

"A Shawl of Extraordinary Beauty"

My Andean valley flower shawl arrived today. It is stunning. The richness and arrangement of colours is unmatched. It is delicate, soft and warm. I cant remember the last time i bought something so beautiful. Thank you for creating a shawl that lifts my spirit and makes me feel sourrounded by beauty and protection.

This poncho is exquisite! The colors are simply gorgeous and the softness of the poncho makes it the perfect lightweight item to take the chill off!

"Buyer Beware!!"

I ordered this item and received it today. It is NOT 70% Alpaca and 30% Silk. According to the tag on the item I received It is 40% alpaca, 25% cotton, 25% modal and 10% nylon. I would have been happy if it was at least 70% Alpaca, but less than half of it is made of Alapca. I had reservations about ordering from this site for the first time and should have followed my instincts. It is extremely disappointing to spend so much money on one thing and get something else that is not equivalent to what I thought I was purchasing. This is false marketing. Do not be deceived!

"My mother loved this shawl !"

My mother loved this shawl. I thought it was very elegant, and nice for a chilly night out. She lives in Florida, where normally its warm, but at night it can get a bit chilly. Whats nice is you can take it off if you get warm and stick it in your handbag. I like the fact that its made from alpaca wool, which is a rarer wool. Also, the color is very pretty and neutral; it pretty much goes with everything.
