My wife's sister bought a similar poncho from the Ya Market and she was so satisfied that my wife decided to buy one as well. She really liked it, it is great! She was quite impressed with the quality of the alpaca yarn since she hadn't had alpaca clothes before. It is softer and warmer than she expected for an a crochet poncho. It is versatile and it can be worn as part of casual or formal wear. The knitting technique is great too, these artisans know their craft!
They should definitely get models to rehearse the clothes for the website, the pictures don't do them justice enough.
The service was great as well with clear communication throughout the process and the price is reasonable for the quality. We would definitely buy again.

The second alpaca product I purchased from the Ya Market, after being satisfied with a poncho I bought from the same shop (Intichay). I chose these mittens for their elegant design, and I am delighted with the choice.4 years 5 months agoView review

I bought the black variation of this scarf, quite happy with it. It has a classic design and it is versatile as it can be worn for either a casual or a more elegant look. The fabric is 100% alpaca and it is lightweight, soft and warm, as described.4 years 6 months agoView review

I know a lot about knitting, and I can tell that this poncho is handmade and of the highest quality. It was the first time I bought something made with alpaca yarn (we don't have that in Europe!) and I was impressed by how soft, fluffy and warm it is.4 years 6 months agoView review
About the alpaca fiber
Alpaca is the natural fiber that is derived from the hair of the Alpaca camelid, a species native to the Andes that lives between 3,500 and 4,500 meters altitude. The indigenous people in the Peruvian Andes have been harvesting the alpaca fiber for thousands of years in order to create a variety of handmade textiles. Good quality alpaca produces luxurious textiles that are famed for being lightweight, warm, strong, hypoallergenic, and for having water and fire resistance qualities.
