Ivory snowflakes within a red band border a stylish black cape by Jorge Molina in Peru. Designed with long sleeves and an open front, the cape is knit with baby alpaca wool, a term that refers to the season's first shear. This fleece is characterized by its soft and lightweight warmth, which is why it’s been a favorite since the days of the Inca empire.
Like feathery autumn grass, warm vertical motifs flow across the borders of this cape. Showcasing the exceptional textile art of Peru's Alfredo Falcon, this layered alpaca blend wrap is perfect for cool days and chilly evenings. The alpaca thrives at the imposing altitudes of the Andes Mountains, producing a luxurious lightweight wool that is exceptionally warm.

However when worn the shorter side falls approximately 13.5 inches from the shoulder and the longer side falls approximately 29.5 inches from the shoulder.
