Details

Alfredo Falcon of Peru designs this striped acrylic kimono-style ruana with bold colors and a mixture of geometric motifs. A touch of baby alpaca, the fine fleece from the season's first shearing, adds to the ruana's warmth and feel. Coconut shell buttons define a sleeve when buttoned. Lightweight, the ruana makes a wonderful layering piece.

Alfredo Falcon learned the craft of weaving from his parents, who learned from their parents before them. He says, “We have been a family devoted to the world of textiles for generations. I use modern colors but I remain true to Incan and colonial motifs.”

"So lovely, so fine."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

It looks delicate, but its not. Its made so well and strong, so soft and warm when on, its a pleasure to wear. Its interesting that the material is first cool to the touch, and only warms up when wearing - reminds me of linen how its cool but insulating. I love the artists choice of pattern, weight, everything.

"The perfect early fall sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The detail is absolutely gorgeous, I have gotten compliments on it! I really like the fact that although it has alpaca, its a lightweight sweater. It is very comfortable and if you want added warm, definitely wear a cami or thin tee under it. It falls nicely on the waist (Im 411, 140lbs) and the fabric has a nice give. The sleeves fall a little past your wrists, which I really appreciate, and it doesnt make you look like a little kid wearing a grownups sweater. I have hand-washed it and it retains its shape lovely. It really is a work of art. I love mine!
