Our lightweight boiled-wool cardigan makes a crisp addition to your wardrobe in a rich red hue that will brighten any winter day. A blend of soft baby alpaca fiber and sheep’s wool is “boiled” in a process similar to felting to create a fabric denser than a knitted sweater, making it warmer and more wind-resistant. Hand-embroidered designs inspired by the kantuta, Peru’s national flower, decorate the front. One-button clasp at the neckline.


Handcrafted in Peru. 80% alpaca/20% sheep’s wool. Women’s sizes S (4-6), M (8-10), L (12-14), XL (16-18).


Hand-wash.


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.

        I am a petite (5 ft tall, 100 lbs) so when I purchase any clothes over the internet I worry how they will fit. Well, I worried for nothing. The cardigan is just about perfect. The sleeves are a little long but I can live with that. I am very happy I bought this. Thank you NG.
