Ecru knitwear cardigan with zip in alpaca

More details

While originally a men’s garment, cardigans moved into the sphere of women’s wear during the late 1980s. Cardigans were hand-knitted, and were quite rare, and worn almost exclusively for bicycling, golf, or tennis. As women began to work, and to practice more sports, these knit garments were seen in more spheres, and became necessary for daily activities.

Chanel is often credited with introducing cardigans, jerseys and other knitwear as fashionable wear, Coco Chanel famously donned a long jersey sweater on the Normandy beach as early as 1913. Cardigans were essentially ubiquitous for both genders in the 1920s. Almost every woman and man would have owned at least one, and they featured prominently in the showrooms of designers such as Patou and Chanel, where they were often paired with matching sweaters.

This cardigan is a beautifully detailed piece with a simple style. Made in alpaca wool, it is an excellent insulator and is extremely durable. Its fibres are elastic and will stretch to fit your curves. Because it doesn’t contain lanolin, alpaca wool is hypoallergenic and doesn’t irritate the skin. It naturally repels water and has antibacterial properties so your knitwear will stay clean longer.

To take care of your designer alpaca clothes, wash by hand in cold water with a mild detergent and lay flat to dry.

This is a go anywhere cardigan sweater, easy with jeans and perfect for work! Wonderfully fitting, this cardigan doesn’t hug the bodies curves, rather it flatters the figure, doesn't matter the shape!
