Details

As colorful as the Andean textiles that served as inspiration for its design, this knit ruana features patterned and solid stripes in gorgeous hues such as blue-violet, kelly green, deep rose, amethyst and Tiffany blue. Peruvian artisan Alfredo Falcon crafts the lightweight ruana using a blend of acrylic and soft alpaca. Open in front, the ruana has two buttons along its sides that serve to create very loose-fitting arm holes. This accessory would look great over a turtleneck in a solid color matching one of the ruana's myriad colors.

Took it on recent trip. Perfect warmth with light weight. Great colors. Washed beautifully. Add palmful of salt to the wash for colorfastness. Thank you for your craftsmanship.

"Lightweight, yet cozy with bright, rich colors"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is a beautiful piece! It is so soft and lightweight -- so perfect for any climate or season. I love the drape of it, and it isnt at all bulky or overwhelming on me. (For comparison, I am 5 6 117 lbs.) For springlike weather, this will be great over a t-shirt, (I wont have to think about what it goes with, since it has so many colors in it that complement my wardrobe) it will also add a Bohemian slant to a little black dress. Wonderful, precise workmanship -- obviously by someone who is not only an expert, but really cares about his work! Thank you!

"My Go-To Garment on Rainy Days"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This ruana is light yet warm, and hangs beautifully. My favorite aspect is that if I wake up to a gloomy rainy day, I can drape it over any color long sleeve t-shirt and immediately feel brighter! Ive gotten many compliments when I wear it!

"These are addictive!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

A beautiful shawl, in a good, wearable size. Soft and lightweight and warm. You should know, though, that gossamer wine and maroon are the same color! I would love to see some new colors, and not just new names for the same colors.

"Alpaca blend poncho"

This poncho is a bit different as it has sleeves. A roll neck and loose fit make it a nice change.
