The Guaraní people are an indigenous cultural group who live in Paraguay and parts of Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Bolivia. 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.


Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18).


100% alpaca. Made in Bolivia

        Comments about Guarani Alpaca Cardigan:

        I wish I could wear this sweater alone but, because it itches, I need to wear a layer underneath. Maybe it will soften after washing/cleaning, which I haven't yet done. But it looks great.

              There is a spot on the sleeve that simply can't be removed. Someone should inspect the product carefully before sending it out.

                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.

                      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!

                      The Museo Amano in Lima, Peru, is home to lovely textiles by the pre-Columbian Chancay culture. A 3,000-year-old woven-gauze Chancay head cloth was the inspiration for this supersoft 100% baby alpaca cardigan. The delicate lacy knit features slightly flared sleeves and mother-of-pearl buttons. Hip length.

                      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.

                      The kantuta is the national flower of Peru. It grows in the tropical yunga forests in the eastern valleys of the Andes. Designs inspired by the kantuta cover this soft alpaca-blend cardigan in two shades of denim blue on a black background. Features a high neck with ruching detail and an invisible zipper.

                      Indigenous Bolivian craftsman translate grecas—repeating geometric patterns—from the traditional garments of the Tarabuco region in this zip-front cardigan. The design is an interpretation of barroco mestizo style, in which indigenous and Spanish cultures have struck an aesthetic balance. This lightweight and cozy 100% alpaca sweater is handknit by artisans in Bolivia. Features two patch pockets.

                      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. The blend of 15 colors is reminiscent of local stained glass and wrought ironwork.

                      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.

                      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.

                      Trujillo, Peru, is known as the cradle of Peruvian independence, but colonial architecture is a hallmark of the city. The baroque wrought ironwork of the city’s casonas, or mansions, is the inspiration for our extremely soft cardigan. Made in Peru of felted baby alpaca wool, it is both lightweight and cozy. Hidden hook-and-eye clasps.

                      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.
