When we first released this cardigan for AW18 all colors sold out in less than two weeks! The cardigan is knit in the softest merino wool and sits right at the waist, making it the perfect match to full skirted dresses and high waist pants. Despite its short length the cardigan is very warm thanks to the heavy wool yarn, full-length sleeves and narrow V-neck. The neckline is by the way very versatile as the cardigan can be buttoned as high or as low as you please, or as the weather allows. The color combinations are classic with a fun and feminine twist and are carefully designed to match your wardrobe staples. The colorful knit patterns from the tiny island Fair Isle in Northern Scotland has inspired crafty knitters all over the world for decades and began its popularity when the notorious Prince of Wales sported the traditional sweater vests in the early 1920’s. Since then the knitting technique has been ever so popular for classic leisurewear for the autumn and winter season for men as well as women. We have incorporated Fair Isle knits into our collections before and it has proven to be a tremendous success. The combinations of various colors in the patterns allows for creative mixes and matches with your existing wardrobe in endless variations. Our popular high quality knits are in 100 % merino wool. Heavy wool is warm without leaving you sweaty and thin wool feels airy and cool even in hot weather. It also stays fresh long, cutting down on washes. Let it air out between wears and when it eventually needs washing just machine wash it at wool wash settings. In other words no need for time-consuming and costly hand wash and dry cleaning! Wool is infamously itchy, but we've solved that issue completely by giving the yarn a softener treatment that makes it a bit shiny, very soft and gets less pilling. Nice huh?
