In Arequipa, Peru, the Casa del Moral, which houses an art collection and library, draws visitors with its architecture that combines Inca and Spanish colonial influences. Its name comes from the mulberry tree that stands in the courtyard.

In the Andean Altiplano of Peru, artisans have been knitting with soft, lightweight alpaca fiber for centuries. Aymara and Quechua artisans in Peru use an alpaca blend to create a dark brown cardigan with a blue and turquoise pattern of asters flowing from the hem and sleeves. A single bloom graces the back of the sweater. Made entirely on hand looms, the sweater is embellished with hand-knit scalloping at the cuffs and hem, and hand-painted ceramic buttons. Light, soft, easily packable, and wrinkle resistant.

“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. Alpaca wool is warm, lightweight, and easily sheds rain and snow, making it an ideal fiber for the windswept Andes. This alpaca-blend cardigan features patterns inspired by the embroidered hems of Peruvian women’s skirts. Single-button closure. Fine-gauge alpaca blend.
