A limited edition piece. The LORTON 005 is our softest LORTON yet. Inspired by the style you loved back in 2022, with a few tweaks and in a new wool. Knitted in our signature 100% Scottish-spun Lamb's wool in Nottinghamshire, the LORTON is cocooned and relaxed in shape with the side pockets and chunky gauge, ensuring this piece can work as both a cardigan and warming chic jacket. With a beautiful float stitch on the front and back and made-in-England corozo nut buttons, this is a beautiful natural knit to treasure. 

We recommend airing as the best way to look after your knit. That's why we started a club. A Wash Less, Air More Club. We'd love you to join us.

To help manage any pilling, add a complimentary wool comb at checkout.

The Details

Building on the huge success of the LORTON released in 2022, we've taken key elements from the one cardigan you loved and we've tweaked and altered the style for a refreshed modern look. This is Navygrey's take on a traditional piece, where we focus on the intricate details.

The float stitch design, on both the front and back of the garment is inspired by the Scottish Fair Isle sweaters. We've created this tonal textured stitch, by the formation of knit and pearl stitches moving together and floating across one another to create a reverse Fair Isle pattern. Intricate stitch detail with the finest Scottish-spun Lamb's wool.

Made in Nottinghamshire, each piece is fully fashioned, where each section of the cardigan is knitted separately and linked together by hand and hand-finished. The process is meticulous and delicate, creating the finest of knits, with often minimal, or zero waste. 

The cardigan has five natural buttons. Each button is delicately etched with Navygrey and made from Corozo nuts, which are derived from the Tagua palm tree. Sustainable, natural and practical. Made in England, uniquely ours. 

The finest Scottish-spun wool

Unlike our previous LORTON styles The Cardigan is made out of 100% Scottish-spun Lamb's wool. The Cardigan is knitted into a luxurious 3 gauge, creating a soft and chunky jumper for warmth. 

Our superfine wool arrives in Scotland by boat once a year, sourced from a special breed of sheep in South Africa.

With a fibre diameter of c. 18.5 microns, it is one of the world's finest and softest Lambs Wools (most average 21-24 microns). 

The wool arrives in Scotland by boat, where it is spun and dyed on the banks of Loch Leven in Kinross by Todd & Duncan, one of the finest Scottish Mills which has been spinning yarn for 150+ years.

85% of the dyes used by Todd & Duncan are organic and the water used for washing and dyeing the wool is cleaned and purified before being returned to Loch Leven to be used again. It is a pioneering and cyclical process that helps to protect the environment in and around the loch.
