Knitted in a lighter-weight 12gg knit, with a flattering round neck and a hem that is designed to drape and not grip.
A loose relaxed fit with a slightly wider body. To give the cardigan its elevated, minimal finish, there is no separate traditional placket - so the buttons blend seamlessly with the rest of the knit.
It's everything you love about our WEEKEND jumper, in cardigan form.
How does the WEEKEND CARDIGAN differ to the CLASSIC CARDIGAN?
The WEEKEND CARDIGAN is a lighter-weight knit compared with the CLASSIC CARDIGAN. It is knitted in a 12 gauge whereas the CLASSIC CARDIGAN is in 7 gauge.
When it comes to fit, the WEEKEND CARDIGAN has a slightly more relaxed wider fit, with a hem that drapes and skims rather than pulling in. The WEEKEND CARDIGAN is a round neck where as the CLASSIC CARDIGAN is a V neck.
Crafted from 100% softly spun Italian yarn and knitted in a lighter 12 gauge knit at our small factory in Portugal.
This cardigan is woollen-spun, giving the jumper its softness. The wool is fully traceable back to the farms, mulesing-free and certified by Woolmark.
The buttons are made from the Corozo nut, here in the UK. They are derived from the Tagua Palm which grows in the equatorial rainforests of central America. Reputedly, the best comes from Ecuador – which is where these buttons come from.
What's really wonderful about these buttons is that there is no human harvesting or cutting of any part of the tree where they grow, as the nuts naturally fall from the tree when ripe. So Corozo buttons not only ‘grow’ on trees, but they ‘fall’ from trees, too.
