"Petrol chakana : Soft, delicate and hopefully warm"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Its well made. Soft and yes, one has to wear it very carefully as while wearing one can feel the threads..wished there was an inner protective layer for protection..and as far as the color is concerned, i must say, its not exactly blue but a petrol color. So, if you are in an impression if it was a sky blue or a turquoise color, its not. Its petrol color. Soft nonetheless.

My step-son lived this sweater when I gave it to him in 2018. The beautiful piece continues to earn him compliments and is one of his favorites.

"a beautiful sweater!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I just received this sweater and already cant wait for the weather to get cold enough to be able to wear it. Its beautiful! Colors are exactly as pictured. And the size fits me well. One thing to be aware of: according to the website, it should be a cotton blend machine washable sweater, however, the tag on the sweater I received says: 100% Alpaca (no complaints here!), and hand wash (oh well...) Still five stars!

"Carry & Wear it everywhere"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Great warm sweater for traveling. It packs well as it is warm but not bulky. I wear it mainly for casual reasons but it could be used for parties or going to the theater or the cinema. Ive had it a year and it was so useful through a cold Maine winter. It would be great as a light but warm outer cover in the warmer states. The greens are vibrant.

"A treat I gave myself"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This sweater is perfect with jeans. It would pair up with dress slacks or skirt as well. I wear mostly jeans now that I am retired and it is perfect. I wear it shopping and get so many compliments from strangers. It is well made, soft and warm. I have several sweaters from Novica and am never disappointed. The quality is fantastic.
