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.


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


Dry-clean.


Indigenous people in South America have raised alpaca for its fleece for thousands of years before Europeans learned about the animal and exported alpaca fiber to Spain in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today this domesticated animal is bred throughout the world, but its native habitat is the Andean Altiplano: Ecuador, southern Peru, northern Bolivia, and northern Chile.


Descended from the wild vicuña, alpacas resemble a cross between a llama and a sheep. The fleece is similar to sheep's wool, but is usually softer, less prickly, and has minimal lanolin content, making it virtually hypoallergenic. Its extreme warmth, relatively light weight, and natural resistance to water make alpaca wool an ideal fabric for the frigid winters of the Andean Altiplano. These qualities have also led to a rise in the use of alpaca fiber in outdoor gear and active wear, although it is also easily spun into a fine enough yarn for use in suits and other dress wear.


Most alpaca products can be treated as you would an object made of sheep's wool—hand wash using a mild soap and lukewarm water, or dry clean—but check the tag or manufacturer's instructions for specific instructions.

              Love all the alpaca wool sweaters, this is the fifth one I have. Have received many compliments as can be worn to many different occasions in our Midwest climate. Do not ball up like so many sweaters sold today. Do have to be careful in hand washing and I always buy large size though medium would be the best fit, being wool expect some shrinkage. Always warm with layering.
              This sweater is striking with the added features of the red buttons and stitches highlighting the design.
              Will continue to purchase alpaca sweaters if this quality, design, and features are maintained.

                    Bought this sweater based on the one and only review at the time. Absolutely correct. A superior beautiful sweater. A work of art and wonderfully crafted.
                    Love all my fine quality NG sweaters and this is a cut above the rest. Very impressive. Doesn't get any better than this.

                        The photo of this sweater does not do it justice -- it was SO much more than I'd expected --the design is more detailed and the buttons are so tailored. I added this to my cart as a 'well, we'll see' item and it was my favorite of the bunch. More than worth the cost, in my opinion.

                        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.

                        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 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.

                        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.

                        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.

                        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.

                        Combining Inca and Spanish design, Peruvian artisans hand-loom this bold black and red sweater using pure alpaca wool. Baroque Spanish florals mix with geometric Inca patterns, all embellished with hand-embroidered accents. Alpaca wool has kept people warm in the Andes for centuries with its lightweight, insulating fibers. The long, relaxed-fit cardigan has a 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.
