This cardigan is my first purchase from Sol Alpaca. First, the cardigan is very nice. The fibers are very soft and not scratchy at all. It keeps me warm without getting too hot inside. I’m extremely happy. It’s very well constructed. The seam stitching is superb. It came with a spare button which I feel like is not always the norm now days. Size guide was spot on too! It can be daunting to spend more money on a product you haven’t tried before. But I can assure you the quality you get is well worth the extra spend. Alpaca is superior to wool fiber in every way. You won’t be disappointed. Great company. Great product.
