This alpaca cardigan comes from Peru, where the wool is hand-shorn once a year from this indigenous camelid of the Andes. Warmer than cashmere and every bit as soft, alpaca is one of the most sought-after natural fibers in the world for its durability, softness, and silky touch. And with an incredibly fine fiber, the resulting sweater possesses a smoother, less-itchy finish than coarser sheep or goat wool. Knitted by skilled craftsmen in Lima, the alpaca is blended with 30% acrylic to create a garment of lasting durability that resists stretching, shrinking, and wrinkling. The open cardigan has a crew neck collar and shawl pockets. Hand wash or dry clean. One size fits most. Tan, Denim, Burgundy, Charcoal, or Cream.
