"This is a great cardigan"

I'm very happy with the sweater. It's a nice "dusky" purple color, the fit is exactly what I expected, and it's lightweight but warm. As a tall person, sometime sleeve length is a problem, but the length on this is perfect. I love how it curls at the hems, and the slight taper from the back to the front, along the bottom hem. Simple but elegant.

"My New Fav"

I LOVE this sweater! The cotton makes it a great choice on a cool summer night and the alpaca keeps it warm and cozy when it is cold. It is light weight and thin, making it incredibly comfortable. It fits easily under a coat or jacket without adding bulk. The muted purple also compliments many different colored outfits and the styling is very flattering to many body types. (Family members have borrowed it and it looks great on everyone!) This NOVICA find is definitely my new favorite sweater!

"Stunning!"

Exactly as pictured. Perfect puple! Arrived quickly. Perfect weight for layering or by itself over a tank or tee.. I'm a size 8-10-12 (women know what this means!) and the medium was just right. My arms are relatively slender, so if you carry your weight there, the sleeves might be snug.

"Cosy and attractive"

The Andean Purple sweater is so cosy. Just the thing for a too cool office or for weekend wear. The blend of 30% alpaca and 70% cotton is very nice and the shawl color will keep your neck warm. Beautifully made and looks like it will last through the cooler months for many years. Well worth the price.
