“High-dwelling companions of the puffy white clouds” is how a 1946 National Geographic article describes the alpaca, a domesticated animal that has provided wool to Quechua Indians for thousands of years.

This alpaca-blend cardigan features patterns inspired by the embroidered hems of Peruvian women’s skirts. Single-button closure. Fine-gauge alpaca blend.

Did you know that the name for the deep blue-green stone we call turquoise is actually based on misinformation? It’s from the French word for Turkish, because European traders found the stone at Turkish bazaars and assumed it was mined nearby, although what they found was most likely from present-day Iran. Nevertheless, Turkish jewelers are known for their inventive designs, as evidenced by the ornate treasures of the Ottoman Topkapi Palace.
