Description

Details

A stunner of a little dress with so much lovely detail; a beautifully scooped neckline, fully functional buttons, half sleeves, and a rib trim at the waist for subtle definition. The innovative cotton/alpaca blend gives it a lovely drape, slight sheen, and lots of warmth. 

  • 85% conventional cotton, 15% alpaca
  • Machine wash gentle
  • Button Front closure with wide bottom hem
  • 35-inch length (size Medium)
  • Gently shaped fit
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru
Fair Indigo Premium Materials
It’s incredible what adding 15% baby alpaca does for a cotton sweater. The result is a bit lighter, but significantly warmer, with a lustrous and beautiful drape. Our cotton/alpaca blend is an innovative fusion of yarns you won’t find anywhere else.
 
How does it do good?
Unlike cashmere, which has become environmentally disastrous and reliant on factory farms, our alpaca is sustainably herded in the Peruvian Andes where families have been tending their herds in the same time-honored methods for hundreds of years. The garments are knit in a small fair trade workshop where workers are paid fairly and treated with respect and dignity.

Very cute but a little itchy
Very cute dress. I wouldn't call it heather gray as much as a medium, darker grey (not quite charcoal but darker than heather). My only complaint is that it's a little itchy, I guess due to the wool content. I think I'll get used to it so I will keep. Now I just need a long cardigan to pair with it.
