Another property of alpaca wool is its capacity to absorb humidity. Alpaca ponchos maintain their shape and quality for years.

    Love this Poncho. Fits and feels great!

    This was what I was looking for. Use for: Cold office, fall/spring hiking, layering for hiking/backpacking, layer for outdoor sleep system. All the comments about the smell are accurate, and I imagine necessary as insects like to eat this type of material. I washed it by itself with 1 pod in cold/cold on delicate with a slow spin, let air dry, and left to air out for 3 days...did the trick. I read up on alpaca wool, and it is analogous to hollowfil insulation used in mid range sleeping bags. The big benefit is as the fibers get wet the "air chamber" stay intact, and the material is "thin" enough to not pull in a great deal of moisture. Lamb/sheep wool is more scaled as the keratin scales grow into a layered structure facilitating slightly more water induction...NERD ALERT!!! Anyway it is an awesome piece, and I love the vertical stripes. I feel like they blend in better with a deciduous environment. Thanks Latin America...malls?

    I am 6'3" and this serape fits me fine. It covers out to my elbows and down to my knees. The hood fits my head and I could wear a ball cap (7 1/2) under the hood. It is lightweight, warm, comfortable and very soft. It does not smell or is oily in any way as the other reviews state. This is my first wool outerware and I am very pleased with it. I plan to use it when temps cool down in the evenings and when I go fishing and camping this summer. I will follow-up this review after I use it for a few months, hence just 4 stars now..

    Very soft, silky and beautiful. It is lightweight, but Alpaca supposedly provides a higher warmth to weight ratio than wool, so I'm hoping that is true. That said, it won't afford the same warmth as a heavyweight or even medium weight jacket (in my opinion). My husband is confined to a wheelchair, so a poncho or cape is much easier to get on & off in our experience.

    I love the material, the hood is slightly too small, unless you're a small person. Overall I'm very happy with it's construction and quality!

    Short of wearing cashmere, it's the softest, most comfortable wool I've worn.

    FYI, I am 6' tall with a 42/44 chest and it fits perfectly (aside from the hood)

    Note, once you have the hood over your head, you can stretch it out a little by hand to make it less tight. I more prefer a caped type of hood, but this poncho isn't really worn with the hood anyway and it's nice having the hood hang behind your head...it's a very attractive poncho and given the material and workmanship, I believe it's a fair price.

    I did wear it in the woods and got caught up in a thorn bush...some of the threads pulled out into loops, however, if you're careful about tugging the loops back in, you can easily repair any 'loop' damage within 10 minutes of your time. I found that pressing my finger directly on the loop as if to press the loop through to the opposite side awhile gently tugging the fabric to the side did the trick...no more loops and it looks brand new again!

    Fits well, high-quality with decently durability. I would have loved some belt loops for the waist, getting annoyed at how it billows out whenever leaning over a sink or table etc. Heat retention is good in temps just below room temps and quite cozy but do not expect it to keep you warm with any significant wind chill involved. It is listed as hand wash only, but have washed using cold cycle a couple times (lost the oily llama smell in the process), air-dried it and had no ill effect. All in all, it is a quality product. I would give it 4.5 stars based on the price point paid (in the 60 dollar range), not the currently listed price point. If you really like this kind of thing, you likely won't be disappointed, but hard to recommend at the moment despite a good experience with mine.

    I have worn it in rains. While moving trees storm blown across roads, in pre-sunrise down pour conditions. I did get wet, but was warm. In winds, volcanic smog, camp fires it jas stood up. I have slept in it, used it as a blanlet many times. I had to replace the neck strings once so far. It looks better every day.
    If you want something that is warm, looks interesting and is fully functional I would suggest this. The alpaca wool gets softer and more comfortable every day.

    This poncho was a Christmas present from my wife. It is a fine product in every respect. The wool is soft; the design is comfortable to wear; the craftsmanship is very good -- the wool is uniform, the seams are solid, and the edges are even; the colors are conservative and attractive. This is not a blanket-weight poncho; it is a well-crafted garment. I work in an at-home office that I keep cool in the winter. This poncho, worn over a long-sleeved shirt, is just as warm as -- and more comfortable than -- a sweater.

    The poncho is warm and good looking.
    It is long enough to use as a nice blanket for me(at 186cm) and will keep me warm both beside the fire and in my tent when out camping.

    Only downside is that the weave is "open" on the ends, and you can accidentally pull yarns out of it if they get caught somewhere.
    This however is pretty easily mended by tying the frills together as on the ends of many carpets. (i tied about six of them at a time)
    I recommend doing this to keep the poncho in nice shape for longer :)

    I'm 6 feet tall and fat, so I'm surprised how well this fits, once I untied the neck string... I did notice that the wool is already started to fray, hopefully it'll last. As someone who's hyperthermic, this is perfect for me!

    Ligero y calientito.
