Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Nestor's mother is from Juliaca in the Peruvian altiplano. She taught Nestor to weave and he, in turn, has taught his wife, his two children and his employees. He finds his inspiration in traditional Peruvian art and constantly searches art and history books to refine his craft.

Nestor is not only an employer, he is an important member of his community. He continues to grow his business providing full-time employment to 23 workers and part-time employment to others when he can. He recognizes his good fortune and shares with those less fortunate whenever the opportunity arises. The income from Nestor's Novica sales not only supports his wife, son and elderly parents — it helps to support others in his community. Many of Nestor's employees were homeless. Nestor not only provides them with work, he provides a place to stay or live.

Nestor loves his community and does what he can to help it. He employs disabled elderly craftswomen to create the unique hand finishes applied to his designs. These women would be unable to care for themselves without the support Nestor gives them.

Nestor was recently diagnosed with a calcaneal bone spur, a condition is often brought about by repetitive motion. He has been forced to modify his daily routine, however he continues to design and craft fine alpaca apparel in his workshop.

Nestor Yana has received 8 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2850 and the most recent for $2850. Proceeds were used to buy yarn in the colors of this season's fashion trends for production.

Nestor's persistence and determination have paid off. He not only is able to support himself but has grown his workshop and now offers work to others.

Nestor pays for his son to attend the university and employs other artisans who pay for their own children's education.

Nestor still provides for his son who is in the university.

"Lovely sweater!"

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.

"this is my second one!"

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!"

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!

"Love, Love, Love it"

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.

Best Uses
  • Great for people that live in climates like Arizona where the temperature can fluctuate 35 degrees in a day

Lorraine

I received my sweater today. The braided cocoa. It is lovely, and made with pride. I know I will be wearing it many many times. Thank you so much for quality clothes. I will be watching your page for more clothes. God Bless

Paul

I love this Alpaca blend sweater. the color change at the collar and sleeves helps it be dress or casual with many different outfits.

When ordering sweaters, especially handmade sweaters, online, I'm always concerned whether they fill fit right. The Alpaca blend men's sweater 'Blue Mountains' fits perfectly, it is very soft for a wool sweater, and the colors and design are just beautiful. Thank you! A. Kuhn
