(5 reviews) Write a Review
SKU: 311780
As colorful as the Andean textiles that served as inspiration for its design, this knit ruana features patterned and solid stripes in gorgeous hues such as blue-violet, kelly green, deep rose, amethyst and Tiffany blue. Peruvian artisan Alfredo Falcon crafts the lightweight ruana using a blend of acrylic and soft alpaca. Open in front, the ruana has two buttons along its sides that serve to create very loose-fitting arm holes. This accessory would look great over a turtleneck in a solid color matching one of the ruana's myriad colors.

    Lightweight, yet cozy with bright, rich colors

    Posted by Wendy on Feb 8th 2020

    This is a beautiful piece! It is so soft and lightweight -- so perfect for any climate or season. I love the drape of it, and it isn't at all bulky or overwhelming on me. (For comparison, I am 5' 6" 117 lbs.) For springlike weather, this will be great over a t-shirt, (I won't have to think about what it goes with, since it has so many colors in it that complement my wardrobe) it will also add a Bohemian slant to a little black dress. Wonderful, precise workmanship -- obviously by someone who is not only an expert, but really cares about his work! Thank you!

    My Go-To Garment on Rainy Days

    Posted by Judith on Sep 19th 2019

    This ruana is light yet warm, and hangs beautifully. My favorite aspect is that if I wake up to a gloomy rainy day, I can drape it over any color long sleeve t-shirt and immediately feel brighter! I've gotten many compliments when I wear it!

    Beautiful piece

    Took it on recent trip. Perfect warmth with light weight. Great colors. Washed beautifully. Add palmful of salt to the wash for colorfastness. Thank you for your craftsmanship.
