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.

My son was impressed as soon as we presented him with the gift box. He was wowed by the sweater! The styling of pattern and colors is exceptional, right down to the buttons! This is a quality sweater that you wont find from retail outlets. We are most satisfied with the purchase.

"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.

"Love the colors"

I love this hat. The only thing is its a little loose, which is the design, at the top. I correct this by folding the front part more.

"Happy Warm Sweater"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I am looking forward to wearing this sweater next winter or on some cool spring day. I did originally order an XL but exchanged for an XXL - I like them a bit large so I can fit a long sleeved shirt underneath. It is a beautiful sweater. It is light but because it it wool it will be nice and toasty. I like the color and the design. Thank you Novica and Fernando Cano.
