Artisans in Peru knit this romantic cardigan using naturally lightweight and insulating alpaca fiber. The swirling floral pattern is inspired by the vineyards that surround Los Molinos, Peru, and is knit on hand-operated intarsia looms. Features crocheted edges and flower-shaped metal buttons.


Made in Peru. Wool blend. 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, alpaca resemble a cross between a llama and a sheep. Its 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.

Love sweater, Have gotten a lot of use out of it since purchase. True to size. Someone commented that this is itchy, can not understand that at all. Lovely color for me (I have hazel eyes). Consider it excellent value at full price.

Comments about Los Molinos Alpaca Sweater:

I had a terrible time buttoning it because the buttonholes were too small. Also, it wasn't well-finished and a bit itchy. I was very disappointed I had to return it.
