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.

"Beautiful piece"

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"

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!

"So pretty and comfy!"

Beautiful comfortable top with such pretty colors. I usually wear just a solid-colored long-sleeved shirt underneath, works for going out and for just lounging around the house. Just FYI the material is fairly stretchy so if you re between sizes (I m usually between M and L myself) I d say size down!

"This is perfect for Californias version of cold weather!"

I bought this beautiful cape (ruana) several months ago, and Ive worn it non-stop! its flattering, very warm, and so easy to wear without having to deal with sleeves. I love it, Ill wear it until its worn out, and Ill buy another one. My favorite article of outdoor clothing for cool weather. It works when Im dressed casually, and when I dress up. Perfect!
