This cardigan represents the classic 1950s cardigan I have always dreamed of, updated slightly for a more comfortable fit. A feminine, flattering, and tailored silhouette paired with an elegant textured pattern results in a sweater that is worth every stitch. Suited equally to a tank top and slouchy jeans or a wool tweed skirt and silk blouse, this basic cardigan is poised to be an heirloom classic. the blend of alpaca, merino, and bamboo creates a soft fabric with gentle drape that has a great balance of warmth and sheen and produces a garment with a sophisticated look you can be proud to say you made yourself.
