    Posted by Deborah on Feb 12th 2019

    Dear Fernando, I love my Andean sweater. The sweater is so soft, luxurious and warm. You created a beautiful design using pretty colors. I feel so special wearing my sweater. I will certainly be purchasing more of your creations. Thank you.

    exceeded all my expectations !

    Posted by Barbara on Jan 26th 2019

    When this sweater arrived I was thrilled at how beautiful the colors were and how skilled the handiwork was. When I tried it on , it fit perfectly! In fact, the sleeves were plenty long, and they rarely are for me. It is warm yet lightweight, and everytime I wear it I get lots of complements. I want to wear it every day as it matches all my pants.

    It will be worn only at home!

    Nice pattern and colors, light and warm but the sleeves and the cardigan are too long and it does not fit well. There is not return form, I am disappointed!

    Now I have two!

    This is a marvelous sweater. It's light, so I wear it even in the relatively cool Vermont summers. It goes with every color. To tell the truth, I've worn one so often everyday that it's a bit worn, so I've ordered another just like it and will wear it at fancier occasions.

    Warm and light

    Soft and light. Great colors, pattern. Only problem is fine wool snags on things at times and leaves loose loops..

    This sweater is soft and warm. There are so many colors that I can wear it over dresses, with skirts, pants. It's one of my favorite sweaters.

    pretty design, but thin as paper

    Posted by Dung on Sep 23rd 2017

    Yarn is thin, weave is loose. Sweater may be worn only for decoration, as it's paper-thin & provides no warmth.

    this is an absolutely beautiful sweater - finely knit and not bulky, but very warm. The pattern is exquisite.

    Truly unique sweater. More lovely than the photo. Unsurpassed quality. Delicate and warm at the same time. A new favorite!
