Women in the Potosí region of southern Bolivia typically wear shawls called iliqlla, and according to tradition the pattern identifies the wearer's community. The zig-zagging design of this alpaca cardigan is inspired by these woven shawls, as well as the colors of Andean sky over Cerro de Potosí, a mountain that has yielded rich mines of silver ore since the Spanish conquest.


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


Hand-wash or dry clean.

    Comments about Women's Cerro de Potosi Alpaca Sweater:

    This beautiful sweater from Bolivia reflects their local landscape in gorgeous blues and browns -- also the winter colors of my home in the high desert, New Mexico. It is beautifully made, soft, and warm. I love this sweater.

    • Very high quality

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Dressy or casual wear
      • Warm For Colder Days

      Comments about Women's Cerro de Potosi Alpaca Sweater:

      Love how the colors chosen for the sleeves match the body of the sweater. Beautifully constructed. Muted colors were perfectly combined for a muted look yet so well done that you might think it is very fancy as I do. Would go perfect with brown slacks or wear with gold jewelry for a dressier effect. This is not a thin sweater. It has some thickness to it so that it is perfect in colder temperatures. I have many National Geographic alpaca sweaters and I would rank this one in the top three for originality, color choice and warmth.

          Comments about Women's Cerro de Potosi Alpaca Sweater:

          The sweater will please anytime warmth is needed.
          The depressing colors- -which are so much more vivid in the catalogue-- need creative touches to brighten outfit.
