This ruana has wonderful colors and lightweight. It fits beautifully over layers. It has served outdoors and in office settings--much more versatile than a cardigan! Many compliments on this piece.

I am very impressed with this garment. The colors and patterns are very intricate. It is finished nicely also. I will enjoy wearing it. The buttons on the sides help give the ruana shape.

The mitts are beautiful and well-made, and for me they serve a practical purpose. Cold air blows on my hands all day at work, and these help keep my hands warm while also looking nice!
