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