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.

"My Go-To Garment on Rainy Days"

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! I've gotten many compliments when I wear it!
