Although the Inca had no written language, they did have complex record-keeping systems called quipus, made of knotted, colored ropes. Researchers believe quipus communicated census and tax information, perhaps even poems and histories. Our charcoal gray cardigan features designs inspired by these extraordinary Inca objects, painstakingly hand-embroidered on the front, back, and sleeves for a festive look.


Made in Bolivia. 100% alpaca. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Dry-clean.

            An awesome garment, however it ran big and with such a steep delivery charge I was forced to return it rather than exchange.

                      During the Inca Empire, weavers made fine alpaca cloth for trade and for the clothing of the elites. Our soft cardigan is knit with Spanish colonial floral designs and a border adapted from ancient Inca fish and river motifs. The colors are inspired by the Urubamba River that winds around the site of Machu Picchu.

                      For more than 130 years, Dale of Norway has produced some of the finest wool sweaters and outerwear in the world. The classic Scandinavian pattern of this blue and white cardigan is inspired by 19th-century Norwegian designs from the villages of Tromsø and Vardø. These were the final ports of call for the Fram expedition that took famed explorer Fridtjof Nansen from Norway across the largely uncharted Kara Sea toward the North Pole.

                      The simple design of our zip-front sweater hides a 500-year history of wool textiles in Scotland. The unique material—felted lamb’s-wool that’s softer and cozier than synthetic fleece, but with all the advantages of natural wool—is made by Lochaven in the heart of Scotland’s traditional textile district of Stewarton. Our grey-trimmed, felted lamb’s-wool sweater is soft and naturally water-resistant, both wind-resistant and breathable.

                      In the early 1900s, enterprising women living on the Aran Islands took the sweaters they had knit for generations of fisherman kin and started marketing them around the world. Today the classic cable stitches of Aran knitters are a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The wool blend features just enough cashmere to make this winter-white cardigan luxuriously soft to the 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.

                      While visitors to Peru often spend time in Lima and Arequipa, fewer make the trip to the country’s sweeping Pacific beaches. This baby alpaca cardigan is inspired by city and sea alike: The pattern on the cuffs and hem is adapated from baroque cathedral decorations in Arequipa, while a red ruffle peeks out like a wave lapping at the shore. A single button secures this flyaway-style cardigan.

                      Our lightweight boiled-wool cardigan makes a crisp addition to your wardrobe in a rich red hue that will brighten any winter day. A blend of soft baby alpaca fiber and sheep’s wool is “boiled” in a process similar to felting to create a fabric denser than a knitted sweater, making it warmer and more wind-resistant. Hand-embroidered designs inspired by the kantuta, Peru’s national flower, decorate the front. One-button clasp at the neckline.

                      West Lake, in historic Hangzhou, China, is dotted with temples, pagodas, and footbridges. Qing dynasty poet Huang Zunxian described it as an “expanse of water and clouds where lotus leaves merge with weeping-willow branches.” Our bright cardigan is inspired by the flowers and carved motifs that decorate temples along the lakeshore.

                      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.

                      The 26-mile Camino Inca, or Inca Trail, to Machu Picchu passes through small settlements, Inca ruins, cloud forests, and alpine tundra. The colors of this superfine alpaca sweater are inspired by that trek: orange zigzags for the distant mountain views, yellowish green for the stones that pave the trail, blue for the Urubamba River and the Andean sky.

                      In a contemporary twist on traditional Irish Aran knitting, our natural ivory cardigan has an asymmetrical wrap style with a single button that creates a cowl-like neck.
