Details

Wilfredo Herencia presents a ruana made from deliciously soft baby alpaca fibers in shades of wine and indigo. Proud of the knitting tradition of his Andean homeland, the artisan says, "What led to my interest in this art form is without a doubt the alpaca...a resource that our ancestors used...today I want to continue this legacy that has such significance". The way the wrap's contrasting colors are knit creates the appearance of a paved road; burgundy-colored borders delineate the open front of the enchanting ruana which can be worn like a poncho or a shawl. The wrap can also be draped over one or both shoulders to create looks both casual and elegant. Baby alpaca refers to the fine fleece from the season's first shearing.

Nicer than the picture. the material is soft and the color is nicer than the picture can show. The double side is perfect, very warm and goes with all my outfits. Thank you to the artist for the wonderful work, Reiner

"These is no black/grey hat"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Looking at the photos, some show a black/grey hat (not light/dark grey. I contacted NOVICA and they said it was the same hat in all pictures, just reversed from light/dark grey. I was unable to have the customer service person acknowledge that the pictures shown are of 2 different hat colors. Ordered the hat anyways, hoping the black/grey one showed up but got the light/dark grey. Love the hat, will keep it but there is not a black/grey hat for sale.
