This investment piece draws inspiration from our checked blanket, a design recognised by the Scottish Register of Tartans.
We stripped the checked design back to reveal this beautiful herringbone pattern, which we created into a two colour-way, sumptuous jacquard-stitch.
Knitted in a sumptuous 5 gauge in England, this is your cosy companion for cooler days ahead.
Each piece is fully-fashioned - where each piece of the cardigan is knitted separately and then linked together by hand and hand-finished. This means that not only is this knit of the highest quality, but that also there is minimal, often zero, waste.
Each cardigan is finished with organic cotton care labels and folded into linen bags.
The finest Scottish-spun wool
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). We have knitted this style into a luxurious 5 gauge cardigan.
It is here in Scotland that the wool 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.
