John Smedley is one of the last knitters who is proficient in the 30 gauge knitting method used to make the world’s finest and most sophisticated knitwear. His knitwear is unbeatably soft and lightweight with an even texture – just like this striped nautical cardigan.
Weighs a mere 7 oz. Made from rare John Smedley Sea Island cotton.
Sea Island cotton has especially long fibres and is very smooth. The feel is similar to finest cashmere – so delicate, soft and supple. It is still picked by hand and processed without chemicals, so that nothing can irritate your skin.
Artfully knitted intarsia stripes.
This traditional technique eliminates annoying tension threads on the inside which could catch on your jewellery. And the cardigan is almost as beautiful on the inside as on the outside.
The single colour side panels flatter the figure.
And make this cardigan one of the favourite pieces among Smedley customers. It is also very versatile, can be worn in a sporty or elegant style, with or without the belt…
