"Beautiful!"

This is a beautiful sweater. The style is unique, which I really like compared to traditional cardigans. The alpaca blend is soft and warm. My only issue is it is a bit long for a petite 5 2 frame, but not a deal-breaker . Id even buy in another color if available.

Best Uses

  • Casual

"Gorgeous!"

I loved this the minute I happened upon it. Its timeless and stylish. I bought the size M/L. (For reference, I am a US 8-10 in tops.) Its generously sized, which I was hoping and prefer. I get so many compliments every time I wear it. Its warm and beautifully made, and I couldnt be happier.

Pia has taken a very modern approach to textile production. Her workers live far from her workshop and used to spend hours each day traveling to work.

Pia works with machine knitters and hand finishers to create her knitwear collection.
