Details

Utterly relaxed yet effortlessly refined. It's the result of blending of silky cotton and incredibly soft alpaca to produce a superlative lightweight but warm knit. The relaxed turtleneck is wonderfully uncomplicated and comfy.

  • 85% conventional cotton, 15% alpaca
  • Hand wash
  • 3” neck height
  • 27-inch length (size Medium)
  • Relaxed 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.

To ensure you get the best fit for your body type and fit preference, use the charts below. For best results, measure over undergarments at fullest part of your bust, at the natural bend in your waist (usually an inch or two above your belly button), and at the fullest part of your hip.

Warm, cozy, casual
The blue color is nice. I like the wintery shade. The shape of the sweater is more like a classic old school sweatshirt; somewhat boxy. The neck sticks up; not a turtleneck and not quite a mock turtleneck. The material is a thick winter weight. I will be using this as a casual sweater to be worn at home with Fair Indigo sweatpants or with jeans.

Warm, comfy, pretty color
Warm, comfy, pretty color in raspberry, true to size. I made the mistake of putting it in the dryer, so it shrank some in arms and body, but I was able to stretch it out enough to wear it by washing it again and laying out to dry over a towel rack, so the fabric is pretty forgiving. Giving it four stars mostly because it's not as easy care. I would love to see this in a tunic length!
