Ponchos are warm, easy to wear and so versatile. Throw it on, and head out the door. Or take an extra moment to line up the joining seam, just forward of your arm and shoulder. For some more elegance, turn it a little, with the seam now down your centre back, roll the neckline over a couple of times, pair with some smart jeans and a long necklace. My favourite way to wear these though is by bringing up the corner by your wrist to your shoulder and holding it there with a shawl pin. The everyday poncho now looks smart enough for an evening out in town. There are endless ways to wear a poncho and the ultimate style is completely up to you.
Ponchos make versatile and comfortable maternity wear. And many new mothers also choose to wear a poncho both for the warmth and protection it provides while you carry your baby on your chest, but also for comfort, simplicity and privacy while nursing.
This poncho is woven with our own alpaca fibre, it is undyed, with a combination of various threads of grey and brown, giving it a soft and textured look and feel. After the alpacas have been shorn, I sort through the fleeces and send them to a local mill, just 300kms away. Please note the shawl pin is for decorative purposes only and not included.
Gentle hand wash in warm water, wrap in a towel to remove excess water and lay flat to dry. Do not wring. Can be ironed with a protective cotton tea towel laid over it.
