Light, soft, warm: Probably your most versatile cardigan, made of precious baby alpaca wool.
Regular single-jersey fine knit with extra flat cuffs, hem and pockets. Made in Ireland.
Rare, fluffy baby alpaca wool makes this cardigan a particularly easy item of clothing to mix and match for year-round wear. You can wear it as a light knit shirt or jumper, casually over a T-shirt or as a jacket replacement. It goes with jeans and business trousers alike. When worn under a coat or weatherproof jacket, it adds an extra-warm layer. Or wear it under a quilted waistcoat for a relaxed look on chilly evenings.
Although it is almost as soft as cashmere, baby alpaca wool is amazingly hard-wearing.
The delicate fleece obtained from the first shearing of young animals is less susceptible to abrasion and pilling, and hardly absorbs odours. Due to the natural elasticity of the fibres, the knitted stitches keep their shape.
Fashioned by Carbery in Clonakilty on traditional hand knitting machines.
The fine, even knitting style of the single jersey makes this cardigan look unusually elegant. The collar and the button facing are double-layered and shape-retaining, the stretchy cuffs are finely ribbed and the two patch pockets are almost invisible.
Casual straight, comfortable style. Length in size 38: 66.5cm (26.2"). 100% alpaca wool. Hand wash. Made in Ireland.
