The Details

A sumptuous 4ply knit, with a stunning float stitch, which subtly echoes the traditional fairisle design. 

Made from 100% British wool in an un-dyed natural shade of brown. Finished with British Made corozo buttons. 

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. 

The cardigan is finished with organic cotton care labels and folded into an organic cotton bag.

England's finest wool

Crafted from 100% British Bluefaced Leicester wool, which yields the finest fleeces of any British breed. A micron of 25 – which has a wonderful lustre, strength and drape.

Sourced exclusively from a collective of farms in the north west of England, our 100% Bluefaced Leicester wool has been crafted by Upland Yarns, is spun in Yorkshire using just water and organic detergents, and enables us to create beautiful British knitwear from sheep to sweater within 300 miles.
