Title Poncho
Description 1 poncho woven in a large herringbone twill weave structure of Alpaca yarns. The warp and weft colors are dark brown, copper, pine green, palatinate purple, light burgundy, and dark burgundy. The overall pattern is comprised of checkered rectangles of herringbone. The poncho is essentially created from three pieces of fabric sewn together. It has a funnel neck and then two rectangular sections of fabric sewn so that the poncho is shorter in the middle and then drapes diagonal and longer on the sides. The left and right sides are finished with knotted fringe. A fabric label is sewn on the neck from the inside. It is black and reads in white print, "Peruvian Connection" with an image of an alpaca. Sewn on to the label is a small white label that reads in black print "100% Alpaca/Made in Bolivia."
