"Exactly what I was looking for!"

It's so versatile, warm and comfy. You can wear as much under it as you want and still have the carefree poncho look. And it has pockets!

"My Forever coat"

Ive been looking for a classy black jacket for quite a few years. This hooded cape is meticulously made and fits the bill perfectly. Just got it and hoping against hope it wont pill over the years. Will leave another review if it does. Its elegant and looks a lot more expensive than it was.

"A lovely product from a lovely seller"

Ive been looking for a nice poncho for a while now and finally landed on this one by Celinda Jaco. I was very excited when I received it, and it was relatively quick to arrive given the distance that it was shipped. The quality of the product is excellent and it is exactly what I was looking for. I especially love the little personal touches provided by the seller, such as the handwritten postcard and Celindas bio. Overall, very happy with my purchase.

"Elegant and beautiful alpaca ruana"

Love this beige or tan alpaca ruana, so elegant and beautiful. The fabric is gorgeous with also crochet details on the edges. Perfect layer and thickness. This color goes with everything since its a plain color that goes well with any other color. Its perfect for spring too in this light tone. I highly recommend it and also this artisan. Its great quality. And it looks so fashionable, yet very practical. I have neck and nerve issues to my arms and hands so I love ruanas, opened in the middle, over ponchos. I hope that she make it in other colors too. And she continues making beautiful ruanas like this one, in other styles. I wanted another beige one but in a blend material with ruffled edges, because I already has one that I love in black and white, but it was sold out. I picked this one then, and it was a great choice too. This one seems thicker with more alpaca, so warmer, so it can be worn when its cold in the winter. I hope that this artisan bring back the blend ones again.
