A cozy, comfy handmade turtleneck vest knit by hand, using the finest alpaca. Made with much love and attention by our partners from the Association of Viva Peru, Cusco.
Designed to be mixed and matched with our other sweaters, we use the highest quality alpaca on the market. 100% alpaca, no wool, no synthetics. Alpaca is durable, won’t pick or itch, repels water and regains its shape with hand washing.
The women who knit these sweaters form an Association of five. One travels from a village weekly, the others live in Viva Peru. In the mornings they work together, in the afternoons, they are in their homes with their children.
Materials used: Alpaca Fina.
small: shoulder to hem (front): 20″ shoulder to hem (back): 23″ width: 13″ at shoulder 18″ at hip
medium: 22 / 26 / 15 / 18.5

This vest will stretch by about an inch in length and in width, so buy on the small side. A simple hand wash with baby shampoo will restore it. (Dry flat). Alpaca wears and launders differently than wool. It will dry fast and easily.
