While visitors to Peru often spend time in Lima and Arequipa, fewer make the trip to the country’s sweeping Pacific beaches. This baby alpaca cardigan is inspired by city and sea alike: The pattern on the cuffs and hem is adapated from baroque cathedral decorations in Arequipa, while a red ruffle peeks out like a wave lapping at the shore. A single button secures this flyaway-style cardigan.

Made in Peru. 100% Baby Alpaca. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Indigenous people in South America have raised alpaca for its fleece for thousands of years before Europeans learned about the animal and exported alpaca fiber to Spain in the 16th and 17th centuries. Today this domesticated animal is bred throughout the world, but its native habitat is the Andean Altiplano: Ecuador, southern Peru, northern Bolivia, and northern Chile.

Descended from the wild vicuña, alpacas resemble a cross between a llama and a sheep. The fleece is similar to sheep's wool, but is usually softer, less prickly, and has minimal lanolin content, making it virtually hypoallergenic. Its extreme warmth, relatively light weight, and natural resistance to water make alpaca wool an ideal fabric for the frigid winters of the Andean Altiplano. These qualities have also led to a rise in the use of alpaca fiber in outdoor gear and active wear, although it is also easily spun into a fine enough yarn for use in suits and other dress wear.

Most alpaca products can be treated as you would an object made of sheep's wool—hand wash using a mild soap and lukewarm water, or dry clean—but check the tag or manufacturer's instructions for specific instructions.

Comments about Peruvian City and Sea Cardigan Sweater:

My very picky friend loved this sweater. The workmanship is superb. It is lightweight and very warm. The size medium is closer to an 8 than. 10, which was fine.
