    Even more beautiful than the photo

    Absolutely beautiful, the colors are exquisite. It is finely crafted and the alpaca wool is soft with NO scent (as noted by a previous reviewer). I will order from this artisan again.

    Better than expected

    Posted by Janet on Jun 15th 2016

    Recently returned from Peru without finding perfect shawl. Saw this and had to order. Authentic, baby alpaca wrap drapes beautifully and is the perfect weight for chilly summer evenings. This exceeded my expectations and is even better in person than the photo.
