Details

Weaving a brown palette of colors on the traditional loom, Peru's Wilmer Vilchez creates a handsome scarf for men. Vilchez selects baby alpaca wool, so-called for being the season's first shear. It has been prized since the time of the Inca Empire for its incredible warmth yet lightweight feel when wrapped around the neck.
