Believe it or not, but it’s possible to wear this knitted teal cover-up a new way everyday. Depending on how you button it, it can be worn as a shrug, poncho, cardigan, back buttoned cardigan, shawl, scarf, or a snood. Hand knitted with alpaca fibre by a group of entrepreneurial Peruvians, this wrap is ideal for building a capsule wardrobe where every item tells a story.
This fair trade cover-up will see you through all seasons, too. Alpaca have evolved over thousands of years to life in the Andean mountains, and as a result their fibre embodies a whole host of unique qualities. Microscopic air pockets provide insulation in winter but give you breathability in summer. It’s lightweight, strong, and unbelievably comforting to the touch.
