The robes are made from blankets I purchase at the San Francisco market. They are made with a synthetic base and Alpaca added in. Very soft and warm. Very durable and washable.
One size fits all. Local alterations are very inexpensive. In the pictures I am 6ft and Angela is 5ft tall.
Open and laying flat they measure 72 inches across. They are just like wrapping yourself in a blanket with pockets.
Only one of each. Fist come first serve.
Free delivery here in Cuenca. Or come and see them yourself. I live just off of Gran Columbia.
$69.00 each. My cost have been going up, but still holding the same price as of now.
There should be 6 photos.
