        This is a gorgeous light sweater, but will catch and pull easily. Wear to the office or to dinner, not for more active pursuits.

            Comments about Bolivian Rose Pima Cotton Cardigan:

            This is a great looking sweater. I wear a medium or a small and got this on sale, so I was "forced" to get a small...and it fits. Take care with putting on the sweater wearing jewelry so that you don't "catch" the knitting loops in the back.

              It is very pretty and comfortable. But, I received this sweater and it smelled so much I had to have it dry cleaned. Then I snagged it twice with my fingernail putting it on, creating two pulls on the front of the sweater.

                    I will use this beautiful sweater as the color in my otherwise bland go to outfit. It will brighten and take up a notch my fawn colored dress cords or my black skirt. The buttons are so pretty, delicate but easy to button up, the colors in the sweater make it go with most any neutral color. I just love this sweater. From the photo in the catalogue, I worried the sleeves would be too tight but they're not, they fit great over a dressy long sleeved tee and have still a little room to move. The length hits at the hip. It's a lovely sweater which I will use frequently.

                    The Peruvian city of Arequipa is known as La Ciudad Blanca because of its Spanish colonial-era buildings made of white volcanic rock. The ornate baroque decorations on the Catedral de Arequipa provided the inspiration for the cable stitches on this soft 100% pima cotton cardigan. Zip front.

                    A highlight of Carnaval in Oruro, Bolivia, is the Diablada, an elaborate choreographed dance that dates back to pre-Columbian times. Masked revelers act out a story of good versus evil. Their costumes often include belts decorated with silver coins, a meaningful symbol in this 500-year-old mining city. These overlapping coins are what inspired the pattern on our soft 100% pima cotton cardigan. Button front.

                    La Compañía 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 pima cotton cardigan.

                    Artisans in both Belgrade and Blace, Serbia, make our cotton cardigan with allover floral patterns inspired by the embroidered skirts and aprons (called pregace) of Serbian folk costume. It was not uncommon for women in rural villages to wear traditional dress every day as recently as the 1980s.

                    One of Serbia’s most significant craft traditions are kilims, or flat woven rugs, made in the historic southeastern town of Pirot. They were a symbol of Serbian royalty in the early part of the 20th century, and they’re still used frequently at state functions. The geometric designs are so often imitated that they’ve been “trademarked” with a geographical indication, similar to the way that only sparkling wine from the Champagne region of France can truly be called champagne.

                    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.

                    Mali, in western Africa, is the largest cotton producing country in Sub-Saharan Africa, and one of the world's poorest countries. But artisans—especially women cloth dyers—have helped make their culture's famous cotton cloth into a worldwide commodity, bringing much-needed income to this unstable nation.
