Hortensia

Hortensia makes the most beautiful knitwear I've seen recently. They are 3 generations of French women raised in Peru, every piece is hand-knitted by artisans using the softest Alpaca wool, something Peru is well known for. I'm trying make this neck cuff (top pic) but with a much simplified cable in the center, with my skill set it's best to keep it simple. The twisty detail on the purple head band (above) is really gorgeous. I LOVE the vest (below), I don't know how much it cost but it should be about $400 and worth every penny because it takes some mad skill to make it so beautifully.
