"Love, Love, Love it"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the softest most comfortable sweater I have ever owned. Versatile enough in weight that I can wear it when its 43 degrees, keep it on at 70 degrees. I loved it so much I ordered one in brown. I will recommend this site to my friends that need sweaters.

"this is my second one!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Last year, we had a new puppy. He tore apart a gray 100% alpaca cardigan sweater we got in Peru in 1998. My husband ordered me this sweater in gray, as a gift. I LOVE it. This year, I decided having another in black would be just perfect. The style, the feel, the comfort and the price are all most amazing. Thank you, Artist and Novica for making the best sweaters around also affordable.

"Very nice sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Wonderful drape, so soft, and lightweight but also warm. Super versatile - goes with dresses, skirts, dress pants, but also jeans. The collar is especially pretty - soft folds gathered around the neck and open edge of the cardigan. So happy with this very reasonably-priced purchase!

"Lovely sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

The sweater size S/M is perfect for a 57, 135-lb person who likes her clothing to fit loosely but not over-sized. The weight of the sweater is just right for those cool days or chilly work places. A lovely sweater with a nice feel to the yarn. I purchased 3 - black, brown & gray.

I bought this for my daughter as we approached winter and she was pregnant. This poncho helped keep her warm and fashionable through the winter session. AND she will wear it again next Fall when she is not longer pregnant!
