"Alpaca "Earthen Splendor" ruana"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Dear Celinda, Thank you so much for your alpaca ruana "Earthen Splendor". I love the combination of a plain brown background and black and dark and light brown stripes. I also like the way the collar sits flat against the neck. I will get a lot of wear out of this beautiful and warm ruana. Dorothy

Best Uses

  • I will look very "posh" when I go for my daily winter walks

Christmas gifted to a much loved, streetwise activist in the Disability Rights Movement named Shawn McDuff, now gone. He had Muscular Dystrophy and felt the cold badly. He was much impressed with its good looks and quality and how beautifully it was packaged,

I am very, very happy with this cape! It is beautifully made, wonderfully warm and very unique. I am only 52, 125# but it works for my petite size. I love the fact that it has pockets! I could not be more pleased! Thank you Celinda Jaco! Your work is special!
