- Large Alpaca Ruana
Large Alpaca Ruana
Like a poncho, this ruana is made with two triangles sewn together. In this case, the seam is down the center back so the garment drapes around and usually closes in the front. It can also be worn as this one is pictured, draped over the shoulder. Each triangle for the piece is 66 inches by 31 inches. The center back seam is 33 inches.
This medium weight ruana is hand woven on a triangle loom. The yarn is variegated brown and black alpaca. To wash, simply soak in cool water with a little shampoo, rinse in the same temperature water, squeeze out, and air dry flat. Block to shape while it is still wet.
