Details

Fernando Cano designs a stylized version of the Andean cross, known as a chakana, for this handsome gray cardigan. Detailed in beige, the chakana represents the link between this world and the world above. Featuring cedar wood buttons and lapel v-neck, the jersey stitch cardigan is knit of alpaca, a warm, lightweight and soft fleece worn in the Andes since the days of the Inca Empire.

"Lovely sweater but runs small"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

My husband loved the pattern and the feel and quality but it was too small. Good deal for our grandson but I had to order an extra large to replace the one I bought for my husband for Christmas.For comparison purposes, he wears a 42 regular suit and usually buys large shirts.

"a sweater that Ill wear"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The sweater is very, very soft - unbelievably so! It is also fairly heavy, despite its softness, so it will maintain warmth. Im a big fella and got a 2X, which usually works well, but the sweater is just a touch small for a 2X

"Cotton Blend Sweater"

Great sweater. I like the comfort of a well knit sweater without bulk, and this one has a comfortable, light-weight feel that is perfect for me. Easy to wear day or night. The design is pretty, flattering and not ordinary.
