For thousands of years, Peruvian weavers have produced elaborate garments piece by piece on narrow looms. Rather than hiding the seams, the weavers often enhanced the garments with decorative stitches. Once a necessity, these stitches now become distinctive accents that give this red baby alpaca-blend cardigan a hand-embellished touch.


Not available for shipment to Russia.


Made in Peru. 80% Baby Alpaca/ 20% wool. Women’s sizes S (4–6), M (8–10), L (12–14), XL (16–18), XXL (20).


Dry clean.


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 Whipstitch Peruvian Alpaca Cardigan:

I never buy sweaters -- I get too hot. But I love alpaca and I loved the colors so I treated myself. I'm also leery about buying clothes on-line from places I don't usually buy from but I was pleasantly surprised. Fits very well, even the arms which are always too long for me. My only "con" is that I won't be wearing it till Fall... Can't wait.

Comments about Whipstitch Peruvian Alpaca Cardigan:

Sleeves must be turned to form a cuff, but I like that. A bit more loose fitting through the body would be nice, but since it is not bulky it fits under a jacket nicely for layering. Love the stitched detail which makes it different from a ho hum cardigan. Great color which is toward the rust end of the red spectrum.

    Fit is snug, sleeves must be cuffed as they are too long.

        Excellent quality sweater, very pretty color (deep orange just bordering on red. Comfortable fit. Very warm for use in colder weather. The decorative accents are nicely done. Lovely piece for dressing up an otherwise casual outfit.
