    Perfect sweater

    Posted by Evie on Nov 23rd 2020

    This is such a beautiful sweater. Craftmanship is impeccable. Love the color combo, I got the plum. Fits perfectly. I got a M. I'm 5'6" and about 120 lbs. The sleeves are perfect length. Highly recommend this sweater or anything Cano makes. Well worth the price.

    Light weight but warm and comfortable. Perfect for Michigan winters. I have received a number of compliments about the style and colors. I couldn't be more pleased.

    LOVELY SWEATER

    Posted by Francess on Jan 5th 2019

    The colors and workmanship of this sweater are just lovely. The reason I give it less than 5 stars is because of the shape and fit. Neckline is odd and higher in the front than it is in the back and sort of pushes my throat and is scratchy. Also the armholes are small. Sleeves themselves are comfortable, but not enough room in the armholes. I am 5'6", 134 lbs. I ordered a medium. I think the large would be too big. Overall the Med is a good fit except the tight armholes. If you have small shoulders and slender arms, this sweater would fit perfectly.

    Beautiful, functional, softer than cashmere

    Posted by Carol on Sep 29th 2017

    Visited Peru in 2013 and began my Alpaca sweater collection with this beauty. I simply love this sweater! One can dress it up or down and the design fits every occasion, or non-occasion. The pattern is eye catching and I love the curving at the bottom; something unique from all the rest. I've always gotten compliments on this sweater and love the variety of designs the artist incorporates in all his work!
