"This is a daily wear!"

Love the fit and weight. The arms could be a bit wider because using them over a shirt makes it tight

"A work of art"

A little background: the most cherished garment here is a 100% alpaca sweater that has been seen intensive use over years and been washed numerous times and is still in great condition. So I ordered this hoody hoping it would be of the same quality, and it seems to be. But beyond function, the form of this hoody evokes the land from which it originates. The horizontal gradations of earth colors bring to mind the open ranges that start in the lowlands and reach into the mountains where the alpaca roam in their natural habitat. (Ive never been there, so that impression is just based on videos.) Its pretty neat that I get to wear this stunning and original design.

"My favorite"

This is now the favorite sweater of my collection. I love the combination of earth tones, the hood and the front pocket. Everything I love in a comfy sweater. Also the price was quite reasonable for the quality of craftsmanship.
