Although the distinctive texture of this wrap sweater is inspired by geometric designs found on Etruscan ceramics and metalwork from the 4th century B.C, the result couldn’t be softer or more contemporary. The asymmetrical design closes with a hidden hook-and-eye clasp, and features a removable leather floral pin. Crafted in Tuscany, Italy, in a luxuriously acrylic and mohair blend.


Made in Italy. 35% nylon/35% acrylic/30% mohair. Women's sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Dry clean only.

    I'm deliberating whether to return this wrap as it isn't as luxurious as I expected for the amount of money paid.

    Peruvian Dove Alpaca Cardigan
    Peruvian Dove Alpaca Cardigan
    (Got it? Rate it.)
    Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

    The native doves of Peru appear much like their northern cousins, but when they take flight, their brilliant wing patches appear as shining crescents of bright white feathers. The doves’ call—coo-coo-lee—has earned this Peruvian bird the nickname cuculi. Inspired by this familiar but beautiful local bird, the long and lovely Peruvian Dove cardigan sweater wraps you in gossamer warmth. With a delicate and subtly asymmetrical grey and white pattern, the open collar can be pulled in close for a shawl-like effect, or worn open and loose for a dramatic and flattering drape. This superlight alpaca sweater is hand-finished in the Peruvian Andes by a company dedicated to supporting local Andean communities and craftsman.

    At the mouth of Galway Bay in western Ireland lie the three small islands that make up the Arans, Inishmore, Inishmaan, and Inishneer. The ocean pummels the islands’ sheer cliffs, creating a landscape that Aran knitwear historian Alice Starmore calls “not surreal but simply magical.” It’s in this remote region that the stitches of classic Aran sweaters were invented and evolved.

    Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
    Tiwanaku Textiles Alpaca Sweater
    (Based on 14 reviews)
    Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

    In the Bolivian high plains, amid the snowcapped Andes, the pre-Inca Tiwanaku culture thrived for more than 500 years. So far only a fraction of the civilization's ruins have been excavated, yet it has yielded some of the earliest and more remarkably well-preserved textiles found in the Americas. Their art features highly abstracted figures, that originally expressed real places, animals, or cultural events but over time became icons with symbolic meaning. The high degree of abstraction in the art of Tiwanaku has inspired several art historians to compare their art to modern abstract movements, including Cubism. The intricate, interlocked geometric patterns on this alpaca fiber sweater are adapted from woven Tiwanaku tunics made around 500 A.D.

    In the northern British Isles, thick wool pullovers known as guernseys kept fishermen warm and dry during long runs at sea. Villages came to be known for particular knitting patterns like this one, originally named for the Yorkshire port of Whitby. Whitby sailors also worked fishing seasons in the Scottish port of Peterhead, and the style is sometimes called Buchanhaven after Peterhead’s small local fishing village. This classic nautical sweater is knit in Peterhead, Scotland, using virgin wool raised and spun in Yorkshire.

    (Based on 9 reviews)
    Category: Clothing/Women's Clothing/Sweaters

    For hundreds of years, women in the rural villages of the Aran Islands off the western coast of Ireland have knit natural wool sweaters for their fisherman kin. Although the myth that you can identify island families by the stiches in their sweater—like a Scottish tartan—isn't true, every knitter does have her own special patterns, passed down through generations of mothers and grandmothers. At weekly gatherings, they continually invented intricate new stitches.
