        Nice, good quality. I was excited about the size, I usually use 42-44 and I ordered XL. It fitted nicely.

                    I LOVE wool sweaters that look handmade. I have quite a collection from National Geographic. This sweater is actually made in Scotland, of Irish Merino wool. This wool is very soft to the touch, and not at all itchy. If it were even slightly itchy, I wouldn't be able to go near it. (sensitive skin) The heathered wool is beautiful, it has little flecks of brightly colored yarn, pink, blue, green, among the muted purple yarn. The yoke and cuffs have a floral-like pattern that are true to an authentic Fair Isle sweater. I bought two, one in small, and one in medium, just incase it shrinks. I CAREFULLY hand wash all my wool sweaters in cold water, no agitation. The wool can tighten up a bit, so far, not enough to make a difference in size. Such a lovely sweater! I would like to see them offered in blue or pink!

                    Like their distant Irish neighbors in the Aran Islands, knitters from northernmost Scotland’s Fair Isle have spread their tiny island’s culture throughout the world via their craft traditions. Fair Isle became famous for its multicolored sweaters when the Prince of Wales was photographed wearing one in the 1920s. Our lamb’s-wool version in many shades of blue and gray is knit by a 140-year-old mill in Hawick, a town along the Teviot River in the southeastern Scottish Borders.

                    In a contemporary twist on traditional Irish Aran knitting, our natural ivory cardigan has an asymmetrical wrap style with a single button that creates a cowl-like neck. The textured wool sweaters of the Aran Islands have become a worldwide symbol of Irish culture. The patchwork of different stitches speaks to the ingenuity of generations of knitters.

                    The Peruvian city of Arequipa is known as La Ciudad Blanca, The White City, due to its colonial-era buildings made from volcanic rock.

Artisans in Arequipa knit our richly patterned, thigh-length cardigan using a jacquard loom and dozens of warm shades of soft baby alpaca wool. Single button closure at the top. Unlined. 100% baby alpaca.

                    The “four o’clock flower” is a type of mirabilis, known for blooming late in the day. It originated in tropical South America, but today this hardy bloom is found everywhere from Pakistan to China to the midwestern U.S. prairies. These bright flowers were the inspiration for our black toreador-style flyaway cardigan.

                    The Guaraní people are an indigenous cultural group who live in Paraguay and parts of Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, and Bolivia. Before European contact, the seminomadic culture didn’t have a written language. The pattern on this lightweight alpaca cardigan is taken from a pictogram for water found on textiles in the Guaraní Museum of Bolivia. The 3/4-sleeve design features a hand-crocheted border and resin buttons.

Semi-fit with flatlock seams, lined hood, double-slider front zipper, and zippered handwarmer pockets.
