"Cozy warmth, beauty in design"

This alpaca shawl is truly a work of art, expertly made. I am a tall woman and it is perfect size for me as I like shawls that are a little longer. Actually, I bought 2 of these shawls, one in beige and one in rust. They are very warm also! Only drawback is that alpaca sheds a lot but they are so pretty and warm, I use them all the time. Thank you Marinella Asto!

"Unexpected Surprise "

This ochre shawl was meant to be a gift for a woman. However, the man that was to be trusted to give it to the woman kept it. he claimed it matched his decor and used it decoratively in many ways listed below. I am glad he liked it that much. But, I would have liked to keep it myself. I did pay for it. Needless to say, this is a really beautiful piece of art that can be very covertly coveted by others.

I received my order of the red, ""Continents"", alpaca poncho. I wanted to say that, this is the most beautiful poncho I've ever seen. The workmanship and the color are both amazing. I would love to see Marianella Asto make more ponchos in the future in other colors; blues, browns and grays. Thank you so much for your beautiful work! Amy M.


Wow! I just received the alpaca Silver Night poncho/cape as a gift, and I LOVE it! It is so extremely soft, warm, and beautiful. I admire your knitting and designing talent. Our winters are long and cold, so this will get much use. Thank you.
