"Lovely, warm ruana"

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.

"I have the ruana in two colors. Love them."

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 get so many compliments in this sweater"

Everyone I know loves this sweater. Its so comfortable. The alpaca wool isnt itchy at all. The sleeves are very flattering. The only downside is that you need to wear an underlayer when its windy in winter. A stiff breeze goes right through it.
