Before European contact, the seminomadic culture didn’t have a written language. The pattern on this lightweight alpaca cardigan is taken from a pictogram for water found on textiles in the Guaraní Museum of Bolivia. The 3/4-sleeve design features a hand-crocheted border and resin buttons.

Pros

  • Dresses up or down
  • It is beautifully made
  • Light weight yet warm
  • Very Comfortable

Cons

    Best Uses

    • My Favorite Extra Layer

    Comments about Guarani Alpaca Cardigan:

    I grab this at night when going out or in the morning when it's chilly. It's great with jeans, a skirt or slacks. I grab it when walking the dog, running to the store, a day at Disneyland with the grand-kids or church. It layers nicely and is not bulky with a coat or jacket. It's rapidly becoming the workhorse of the, "I need an extra layer..." all year-round pieces in my wardrobe.

          Comments about Guarani Alpaca Cardigan:

          I was so happy to find this softly colored, solid alpaca sweater. All the others were so brightly colored and the print was so busy. I realize that they represent the regions where they came from but I couldn't wear them because I'm so petite. This sweater is perfect. I love alpaca and this has all the right elements. Please offer more solid, non busy sweaters. Thank you!

          Huayño is Peru’s most popular musical genre, blending rural folk with urban dance rhythms and themes of love, hardship, and longing for home that fans of American country music would recognize. The music and its dances have roots in the Inca Empire. Traditional huayño dancers wear heavily embroidered skirts and sashes, and these are the inspiration for our soft red baby alpaca cardigan, embellished with pima cotton embroidery in shades of goldenrod, dark blue, and sage. Hidden hook-and-eye closures.

          Eighteenth-century churches dot the region of Chiquitos in Bolivia's eastern rain savanna, and motifs found on furniture and paintings at San Jose de Chiquitos were the inspiration for this superfine alpaca sweater.

          La Compania church in Cusco, Peru, is one of the most breathtaking examples of colonial baroque architecture in the Americas, and its ornate facade was the inspiration for the fuchsia and magenta patterns on our alpaca wool cardigan. The lightweight and naturally insulating alpaca fiber makes it a perfect layer for cool weather.

          In the open markets of towns throughout the Peruvian Altiplano, one can find stalls full of fresh flowers. Some of the blooms have been used for hundreds of years to create natural dyes, like the yellow kiko flower, part of the daisy family. Our reversible alpaca-blend cardigan is decorated on the front, back, and sleeves with trailing blooms and vines, featuring hand-embroidered embellishments in earth tones of red clay, topaz, slate, and amber. Reverses from brown to black with contrasting piping.

          Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

          The Peruvian town of Jauja briefly flourished as the capital of Spanish Peru. The Inca riches that Pizarro and his men found there even lead to the legend that Jajua was a land of luxury. “Pais de Jauja” has become a Spanish expression for a mythical land of leisure and excess, but today the real Jauja is a quiet colonial town with fewer than 20,000 residents. The lacy patterns on our alpaca-blend cardigan are inspired by the Baroque and Rococo architecture of the 1564 Jauja Cathedral. Features a hidden front zipper.

          Our soft alpaca wool cardigan uses baby alpaca wool in a tailored style. A traditional material for Andean clothing, alpaca is both warm and lightweight. The fibers in this cardigan are fulled, a process using hot water and friction that gives the knit fabric strength and softness. Details include princess seams, faux patch pockets, and a buttoned tab on the back. Resin buttons display an interlocked Inca motif.

          The Baure people are an ethnic group in the Beni region of Bolivia who enjoyed a relatively peaceful coexistence with Jesuit missionaries in the 17th century. The intricate designs of this alpaca cardigan reflect both the Baure's animist religious beliefs—where all plants and animals in the jungle possess a spirit—and the baroque-influenced architecture that the Jesuits brought from Spain. Made of superfine 100% alpaca in a family studio in La Paz, Bolivia, with hand-embroidered details. Alpaca is highly insulating and lightweight, perfect for cold-weather travel. Zip front.

          For thousands of years, Peruvian weavers have produced elaborate garments piece by piece on narrow looms. Rather than hiding the seams, the weavers often enhanced the garments with decorative stitches. Once a necessity, these stitches now become distinctive accents that give this red baby alpaca-blend cardigan a hand-embellished touch.

          A highlight of the trek to Machu Picchu is entering the dense, humid ceja de selva, the “jungle’s eyebrow,” just before entering the 15th-century Inca site. Our alpaca sweater features designs inspired by the flora found in this lush landscape, including orchids, bamboo, and the pisonay tree, considered sacred by the Inca. Hand-embroidered details and knit buttons are stitched in pima cotton.
