"Love Love Love This"

One of the best items I have ever purchased anywhere - a signature piece of clothing. Surprisingly lightweight, warm, versatile; dramatic but not pretentious. I'm 5'10" and wear an XL t-shirt and it completely envelops me, yet it also looks great on smaller friends. It is long enough to double as a blanket in a pinch. Because the quality is so nice and because I smoke cigarettes, I was afraid to wear it for several months, thinking I would just wear it for special occasions, but once I started wearing it, I never stopped. It does not absorb odors very much and does not have to be washed frequently. This would be a great item to carry while traveling. I carry it everywhere I go - it folds up small enough to do that. If I could afford it, everyone I love would own one of these beautiful wraps! Thank you for your craftsmanship!

Best Uses
  • lightweight warmth, security blanket, dramatic yet humble look

"Lovely practical wrap"

This is a beautifully made ruana that is perfect for wrapping yourself up in to read a book, watch a movie or browse the internet. I've also thrown it over my casual wear to take the dogs for hike or just go out and get the mail on a cold day. It has an almost medieval monastic quality that I really like as I'm not a flashy dresser.

"Earthy Medium Brown Toned Warm Wrap"

This is wrap is very comfortable and easy to just throw over your shoulders anywhere or time you want to stay warm. I feels a bit heavy weight from the abundant use if fabric. The fabric has a soft sweater texture. It does have a grey color hint mixed in the medium brown tone to give off a tweed effect.

"Perfect"

This gorgeous ruana just arrived and timing is perfect. I am 5'8" tall and it wraps around me like a wonderful blanket. The length is really just what I want. Not too heavy, but warm. I'll be traveling this fall and winter and it will be right beside me in the car for when I have to get out and face weather. It is every bit as good as described. Thanks so much for such a great product.

"Beautiful, warm, quality garment."

This is a high quality garment in every way. The tweed fabric is lovely and the finished edges are first rate. The length in the back really nice and the overall drape is very flattering. I bought this for a friend who wears a synthetic fleece ruana and thought it was warm enough. She is delighted with everything about this wrap, especially the extra warmth!

"Great addition to wardrobe"

I bought this for traveling, but I can see it having full time use. It's very soft, I don't always like wool, but it's not at all itchy. Looks very cool on. I intend to use this on airplane instead of their nasty blankets, and as a cape in the evenings or when it is a little chilly on my trip.

Best Uses
  • Casual wear

"Beautiful wrap"

This is a beautiful wrap. The colors are subtle, mainly brown with some grey flecks in it. Its very plain but stylish and will go with everything. The crochet trim blends in with the rest of the garment'; you really have to look for it. I'm disappointed it is not softer. I would say soft, but not "very soft" as described. It would be nice if the pictures included one of the model with her arms outstretched so you could see the shape better. I am in no way disappointed, but I am a little surprised at the shape. I think this will replace my old cardigan as the go-to piece for a little extra warmth. I think it will be great for travel.

Best Uses
  • lightweight layer, travel wrap

"A Beautiful Warm Heirloom made with Love"

Dear Alfredo, I am thrilled with the beautiful Alpaca wrap. I have travelled the world and bought wool and tweeds from places such as Scotland and Ireland. This Peruvian wrap is so incredibly warm and soft and the textiles so perfectly woven and crocheted. It is a work of art worthy of passing down to family. I have already bought another as a birthday gift for a niece. You can feel the love that went into the making of this lovely creation. I will cherish it. Thank you to you and your fine artisans. M. Shew
