Terrace farming has been part of the Peruvian landscape since at least 900 B.C. It makes even the steep Andes farmable, which, scholars agree, contributed to the success of pre-Inca civilizations like the Chavín, Moche, and Huari. This ancient striped landscape of rock, soil, and crops is the inspiration behind our textured sweater.


Made in Peru. 80% baby alpaca, 20% wool. Men’s sizes M (38-40), L (42-44), XL (46-48)


Hand-wash or dry clean.

The 26-mile Camino Inca, or Inca Trail, to Machu Picchu passes through small settlements, Inca ruins, cloud forests, and alpine tundra.

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.

(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

Stained glass, vitrales in Spanish, is an important part of barocco mestizo style, the blend of Spanish and indigenous architecture found throughout Bolivia. Congregations that couldn’t afford true stained glass would mimic it with paint. The hand-shaped leaded outlines of these intricate windows are the inspiration for the pattern on our gray-green 100% alpaca crewneck sweater.

Chakana Alpaca Sweater
Chakana Alpaca Sweater
(Got it? Rate it.)
Category: Clothing/Men's Clothing/Sweaters

The Spanish vanquished the last Inca strongholds in the 16th century, but from the soaring heights of Machu Picchu, it is easy to imagine that the Inca empire still extends as far as the eye can see. The Inca understood their world as three interconnected parts: hanaq pacha, the world above, ukhu pacha, the realm below, and kay pacha, the world of the here and now. This complex cosmology found simple expression in the image of the chakana—the Inca cross—a graceful symbol that represented the entire Inca universe. Inspired by graceful lines of Machu Picchu and the chakana, this beautiful pastel sweater is knit on communal looms using 100% pure superfine alpaca yarn from the Peruvian city of Arequipa.

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.
