Ana Fernandez, with the support of her family, began studying textiles and design at a young age. She works with a team of Peruvian artisans in order to craft wonderful pieces of attire. She designs this poncho from baby alpaca wool, with a solid cherry color. The diamond-shaped patterns present in the fabric are achieved by a specialized knitting process that is finished by hand. With tassels and a belt, the poncho is soft, lightweight, and elegant.
Baby alpaca refers to the fine fleece from the season's first shearing.
