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.

This will be a favorite!
The fit is excellent, even for my long arms. It is trim without being tight, and looks great over a shirt or alone.

great sweater
I received the navy sweater for Christmas. I love it! It is comfortable, soft and looks good. It washes well on gentle cycle, I dry it flat. It isn't too warm, but just warm enough. The sleeves push up if need be, I was afraid it could not push up with the buttons but it isn't tight.
