Wilber Calapuja of Lima, Peru grew up with a mother who knitted sweaters to sell, but it wasn't until he was invited to work at a sweater factory that his interest in designing and making them awakened. His technical background has helped, and he is now independent, creating and making products that are completely his own. This roll-neck cardigan is 100% baby alpaca in a variegated grey with front buttons and patch pockets. It is perfect for men's casual wear.

His birthday is on the 11 and we werent sure what to send him because for us Novica ships to Colombia! He is going to be so surprised when it gets there and will appreciate the artisan who made it. It has pockets the color he will love and I think he so so surprised... and tears will go to Perú

"Size Down!"

This an exquisite sweater, and even prettier in person than in the photo. BUT its HUGE. Im a size 2 or 4, and you could put 2 of me in the size small. BTW, the knit is also fairly loose and delicate, so its not an everyday sweater. Sadly, its going back due to sizing. Wilber, please make one in the same colors and pattern, but longer and more fitted! Thank you!
