Details

Hand-knit textures revel in the yana (the Quechua word for "black") hue of this hat. Alfredo Falcon crafts the piece from 100% alpaca, its subdued design imbued with Peruvian style. The alpaca thrives at the extraordinarily high altitudes of the Andes, resulting in a fiber of unparalleled softness and warmth. A hip accessory for the winter wardrobe.

"My husband loves it!"

Theres nothing like alpaca, even better than cashmere. And when the hat is beautifully made and you have absolute confidence in the seller, its a cinch to be a great purchase--which it was. I have so much respect for the artisans who keep the ancient crafts alive. Thank you!

"Pleased"

Exactly what you would expect from an alpaca watch cap. Lightweight, soft and warm. Much lighter than my cashmere or wool caps. Fine, very fine workmanship. Would definitely recommend.

"A luxurious handmade article"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The alpaca scarf is luxuriously soft, a perfect ensemble for men or women, very cashmere like except warmer, and blends with nearly any color coordination. This is my second piece from this artist and he is really a first tier craftsman. Highly recommended, you will not be disappointed.
