In the open markets of towns throughout the Peruvian Altiplano, one can find stalls full of fresh flowers. Some of the blooms have been used for hundreds of years to create natural dyes, like the yellow kiko flower, part of the daisy family. Our reversible alpaca-blend cardigan is decorated on the front, back, and sleeves with trailing blooms and vines, featuring hand-embroidered embellishments in earth tones of red clay, topaz, slate, and amber. Reverses from brown to black with contrasting piping.
Made in Peru 50% alpaca/50% acrylic. Women's sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).
Absolutely beautiful. The more I gaze upon it, the more beautiful it is to behold. The flowers do trail. I like to turn it inside out, just to look again. I stand in front of the mirror to see the beautiful flowers as they trail in back. It can be dressed up for evening or be stunning in the day with your jeans. You can't make it look bad. It is so soft, I never even noticed it was part synthetic. I am sure this helps it to be stronger. I am not disappointed by this. It is still a work of art! I find the cut to be plenty roomy on the size large items I bought. Medium is substantially smaller, but still full cut. Considering the different makers, the sizing is pretty consistent.
