As soft as cashmere and still tough: The cardigan made of precious Royal Alpaca.
Lasting beauty and an especially noble gift.
This men’s cardigan is made of extremely rare and expensive Royal Baby Alpaca. The precious fibre is one of the most exquisite in the world. Only fibres with a diameter of less than 19.5 microns and a length of 64-68mm (2.6"-2.7") are allowed to carry the “aristocratic title” of Royal Alpaca. The fine undercoat derives from the first shearing of the young alpaca and is painstakingly sorted by hand. In comparison only the fine undercoat of the Mongolian cashmere goat is as gentle and as soft.
And yet Royal Alpaca is amazingly tough: It resists abrasion and pilling. And does not readily absorb odours and dust.
In a slim and elegant blouson style, it is soft and substantial in a smooth fully-fashioned knit for a perfect fit. With double button panel that stays in shape and lasting elastic ribbed cuffs. Two flap pockets with a box pleat have plenty of practical storage space. The comfortable ribbed troyer-style collar can be worn closed up or casually open. A timeless, beautiful classic that can be worn for years and matches with almost all shirts, T-shirts and trousers in your wardrobe.
Classic casual style. Length in size 40: 68cm (26.75"). Colour: Mottled beige. 100% alpaca. Hand wash only.
