Description
Weaving a brown palette of colors on the traditional loom, Peru's Wilmer Vilchez creates a handsome scarf for men. Vilchez selects baby alpaca wool, so-called for being the season's first shear. It has been prized since the time of the Inca Empire for its incredible warmth yet lightweight feel when wrapped around the neck.

    I had been to Arequipa back in 1989, but this is the first time I am luck to have purchased such a finely crafted product from that region of Peru.
