Intichay is a family run business and textiles workshop that specializes in high quality handknit alpaca products, renown for their lightweight, warm, soft and luxurious quality.
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. They are soft to the skin (so much better than sheep wool!), they keep the hands warm and they extend quite a bit beyond the wrist. They allow the fingers to move freely.
Simple but excellent choice for women. The service was great as always!
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.
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. Being used to sheep wool products, this scarf is finer and thinner than I expected, which was a nice surprise.
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. The colors are beautiful, a nice melange combination. It drapes nicely and it is versatile; it can be combined with many different clothes. It certainly exceeded my expectations and I think the price is reasonable for the quality.
The service provided by the Ya Market was excellent; communication was good and the product arrived in time.
