Details

Fernando Cano orchestrates a spectrum of rich and intense colors for the design of this fashionable sweater. Featuring a plum base, the neck and shoulders as well as the cuffs and waist feature a colorful glyph-like composition. Cano knits the long sleeve sweater with alpaca wool, once favored by the Inca for its incredibly light weight and warmth.

"One of my favorites, always get compliment"

High quality workmanship, unique design and medium weight - not too thin and not too thick. Striking color scheme, even more attractive in person. Will never find this design in a department store. One of a kind.

"Beautiful and comfortable."

Beautiful design and colors. Very comfortable. Must be careful not to snag the reverse of the design and pull the threads. Use a crochet needle to pull threads back through.

"A hand-made special sweater"

I just received my Andean Appeal sweater. I bought this sweater as a birthday present to myself. I love this sweater. The pattern is gorgeous and the colors are soft and not too bright. It is so well made and has such a beautiful hand. I cant overly express how well this sweater is made. All the seams are perfectly matched so they are invisible. The button placket is woven into the sweater and not an add-on. I am so very, very happy with my purchase. Happy Birthday to me!
