Alfredo was recognized by the city hall for his excellent work.
This poncho is truly beautiful and super soft, made with the highest quality materials. The only reason I'm giving 4 stars out of 5 is because maybe I am too small and the poncho's neck is very wide for me. The length and weight of the fabric are perfect, true rich colours, everything is perfect except for the wide neck that, as a matter of fact, looks pretty sexy if showing neck and shoulders LOL! It came beautifully wrapped, I didn't want to open it :) Thank you so much, Alfredo!

"LARGE NECKLINE, LONG LENGTH, HARD TO KEEP IN PLACE"
I was very excited to get this poncho, I haven't had one since I was a child, but this did not meet my expectations at all. I put it on and noticed it was very hard to keep this thin of a fabric in place and on my neckline and shoulders especially. I went and looked at the model's picture and did what I could to look like her but the length much longer than hers, and my fingers don't even come out of it. The neckline is so deep and wide it's like it was made for a giant and I am an average 5'5" size 8 woman. I feel as though to wear it I would have to be very careful and have someone adjust me all the time because it moves around so the symmetric of the line of blue is not right when this happens. I want to have a poncho for this fall but this fell short or rather long. I can't wear this it is far to large and too much movement of the fabric when you try to do anything in it. Very disappointed. My 6' girlfriend might like it but it would probably move too much for her also. Help!
