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 so that is drapes, rather than grips. 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.
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.
