Product Description

What is an Alpaca Ruana?

Alpaca Ruana’s are originally from the Andes region of South America. The word ruana comes from the ‘Chibcha’ meaning “Lord of Blankets”. They are usually square or rectangle-shaped with a head hole and a slit from that hole down the middle to the edge. They’re very thick, soft, sleeveless and are usually knee-length.

An Alpaca Ruana from Fox Wire Farm is versatile, elegant and one size fits all! Unlike the Poncho, it has a split front to hang free or drape over the shoulders and a full back. Wear A Dark Color Basic Layer To Create A Slimming Effect. Ruanas will add bulk to an outfit so you want to make sure that the base layer is a darker color so your eye is drawn in. Black is an excellent choice. Choose a black top and bottom to create the “column of color” that will make you look slimmer and taller.

There are indefinite ways to wear our Alpaca Ruanas. Wear it with a pair of skinny jeans and boots, or style it with a pencil skirt or wear as an outerwear with party dresses. You may wear it off one shoulder and draped across the front to form a dramatic cowl in the front. or, cross one side or both with your favorite brioche or pin, cross it under itself, leave it open, or wear it as a wrap skirt or dress.

The list goes on as your imagination grows... Pass a belt or sash around your waist inside the ruana in back and outside in front. Or gather the fronts together in pleats for a nomad look. This will be without a doubt the most unique item in your wardrobe and amaze your friends!
