For most of us, winter sweaters are a necessity, so why not choose one that’s not only cozy but honest-to-goodness elegant? This fully reversible alpaca-blend sweater features hand-embroidered flowers that put us in a Shakespearean state of mind, but it’s created by textile artisans in Huyancayo, high in the Peruvian Andes.
A true double-sided knit, it reverses from black to purple with intricate embellishment on both sides. The single top button creates a classic and flattering silhouette. Alpaca fibers are lighter, more insulating, and softer than wool but without the bulk, even in this gorgeous and substantial piece of textile art.
