The sweater arrived promptly and in perfect shape. The color was true to the picture and the size was true. It was flattering on, warm but not uncomfortable as the day grew warmer, and as all alpaca, soft, soft, soft! Similar to cashmere but not quite as expensive. I have some alpaca socks and have found they wear surprisingly well; I expect the sweater to do so as well.

I bought an alpaca from STP in brown very similar to this one 5 years ago. This one ran 1 size large and seemed to be of the same quality construction. I bought a San York Alpaca with a rolled neck and cable knit in this order and it was sized correctly. I have ordered a replacement a size smaller. I hope that it works, as this color is perfect for my game gear.
If this sweater performs up to the one I bought 5 years ago, I expect it to shrink little in a cold wash and require little brushing.

Heeding the reviewss that this sweater runs quite large, I ordered the medium and it fits just right...shoulders, sleeves, overall length. (I'm 5'4") The alpacea provides warmth without bulk or itch. Have worn it a couple of times and the rather loose weave seems to hold its shape. Overall, very satisfied with this purchase.
