Details

Indigenous Bolivian craftsman translate grecas--repeating geometric patterns--from the traditional garments of the Tarabuco region in this men's three-quarter-zip pullover sweater. The design is an interpretation of barroco mestizo style, in which indigenous and Spanish cultures have struck an aesthetic balance. This lightweight and cozy 100% alpaca sweater is hand knit by artisans in Bolivia.

"Beautiful Sweater"

I love this sweater...it's so soft a warm. I've received many compliments about it. The work and skill that went into if are obvious. If you purchase one of these you will not be disappointed. A sweater like this is an investment that will last a lifetime.

"HANDMADE 100% ALPACA"

It's very hard to find a 100% alpaca from the region where they started, it's a Top Shelf product. As the prior review says, you will not be disappointed. The picture on the Web does not do it justice. Much better colors , you will see.. Buy it while it last.

"The Love of this sweater"

I bought this sweater in 2012 for my son in college as a Christmas gift. It was his absolute favorite sweater! Five years later in 2018, the sweater accidentally got in his laundry. My son phoned and was absolutely broken hearted about his sweater. So I bought a replacement. He was so happy to have his favorite sweater back. Truly an heirloom!

"Beautiful sweater, but picks easily"

This is a nice looking men's sweater, but lighter weight than I expected. My husband loves it, but after only wearing it a few times I have had to make several repairs. I crochet and know how to tie off lose strands without pulling the fabric or making the hole bigger. However, I should not have to repair a nearly $200 sweater that is brand new. We did keep the sweater.

"Color Not as Shown"

I wish I could add a picture to this review because the color is darker than expected nor does it match the picture in the catalog. If I had seen the actual color I would not have ordered it, but since I got it on sale I will not bother returning it. The background tan is more of a brown, think ragg wool. Overall the entire sweater is darker so it's more muted where the reds and patterns do not pop as much as they do in the photographs online or in the catalog. Disappointing.

"Why did I wait so long"

Phenomenal sweater. I read all the reviews before purchasing and I want to respond to some of the points that caught my attention. -The sweater is slightly darker in person compared to the picture. -The itchiness is very mild and non-existent with an undershirt. -The sweater is lightweight, but quite warm - not hot. I am often warm, so buying sweaters I can actually wear is a tough task to accomplish. -I have worn it with a very lightweight undershirt and was comfortable indoors. This is the perfect sweater for wearing under my work coat with a wicking undershirt. When working outdoors I use layering versus a super heavy coat. -In as manly a way as I can say it - it is very sharp without being over the top and the wife really likes it. -It is super soft, almost silky feeling. -I commented it was big in all ways. Not greatly so. From my understanding of wool and alpaca, they may tighten up over time with cleaning. If this happens, it will still fit great. I ordered my usual shirt size of large. -The only negative I saw is its pricey. But after you wear it a few times, you'll agree it is worth every penny.

"Beautiful Sweater Not Durable"

Wore this sweater one time. After returning home my wife noticed that it already had a pull. Taking to dry cleaners. Afraid to wash it after this. Seems the sweater is very done with big stitches which causes the sweater to pull easily.

"Not as pictured"

Color online seemed to me to be a contrast of greens and whites. The actual product I received was more like browns against beige, not nearly the contrast implied. Otherwise a decent, warm, sweater.

"Beautiful sweater!"

This is gorgeous, very soft. I bought an XL which is more like a 2XL. This sweater is comparable to Dale of Norway sweaters. Very high quality.
