This is the first Alpaca sweater I have owned and I LOVE IT!! It is so soft and gets softer somehow every time I wear it. It keeps me warm but never sweaty uncomfortable warm like other sweaters tend to do. And one of the best things is no matter where I am in Wisconsin, or on vacation in another country people stop and comment on how great my sweater is. Oh and by purchasing from Campo Alpaca I am supporting their mission.
