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.

"Beautiful Hat for the Cold Weather"

Very comfortable and warm hat. The 100% natural alpaca is a beautiful weave. The length of the hat can be worn over the ears for cold weather or like a cap for warmer weather.

"My new go to warm beanie"

I wear glasses and finding a beanie cap has been a challenge. Most fit too tight and push down on the rims of my glasses. Or they are too loose and not warm enough. This alpaca hat is the perfect solution. Feels like it s not there but my head is toasty warm and never too hot. Can t say enough about how much I like this hat. Have recommended to family and friends and I ll be adding a backup.

This hat will stay on even if you live in a windy place. It is a good value. Versatile style. Dress it up or down. Traditional style hat with a pea coat.

"So pretty and comfy!"

Beautiful comfortable top with such pretty colors. I usually wear just a solid-colored long-sleeved shirt underneath, works for going out and for just lounging around the house. Just FYI the material is fairly stretchy so if you re between sizes (I m usually between M and L myself) I d say size down!

"This is perfect for Californias version of cold weather!"

I bought this beautiful cape (ruana) several months ago, and Ive worn it non-stop! its flattering, very warm, and so easy to wear without having to deal with sleeves. I love it, Ill wear it until its worn out, and Ill buy another one. My favorite article of outdoor clothing for cool weather. It works when Im dressed casually, and when I dress up. Perfect!
