Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boho Chic Just received this and wore it the next day! It is a timeless classic with a boho chic vibe. Bought XS/S, (5'7", 118lbs) and it fits perfectly. The sleeves are roomy enough to add a long sleeved layer underneath and there is plenty of room for me to do a slight wrap over in front if I want to wear it closed with a belt. Colors are true to online pic. If I were to improve on the design, I would suggest a couple of hook & eye closures or knitted tassel ties and some side slits.......maybe even pockets(?), although they might throw off the way the piece hangs.. It is a fairly straight fit - I thought it might have more of a swing in the back but it still works. Not sure I would have paid full price but glad I bit the bullet & purchased on sale. This is a heavy, quality knit, there is a slight 'hairiness' to one of the yarns, so expect some light shedding for the first few wears.

A consummate collectible, this extraordinary piece is handcrocheted of undyed alpaca (82%) and wool (18%) yarns. It takes one skilled craftswoman weeks to create this coat from start to finish. Inspired by a vintage afghan, it's patterned in open concentric diamonds of black, grey, cream and camel, with striped trim and a border of mini geometrics at the hem; buttonless placket.
