      Received the cardigan just before a bitter cold snap. Layered it with a medium weight jacket and was very comfortable the entire time. Works well on its own in cool weather too.

        Comments about Scottish Borders Cardigan:

        I would recommend one or two suede, horizontal, inside pockets sewn in behind the suede patches on the chest, with a velcro closure to accomodate a smart phone or small wallet. It/they would be secure, hidden and readily accessable.

          Itially, I was disappointed that the elbow patches were too low, centered between my elbow & wrist. For a measly $15.00 a seamstriss simply removed the patches and repositioned them at my elbows. Why it took me so long to figure that out is beyound me. The sweater now looks perfect.

          The sleaves are too long in relation to the body size. The sleave, sweade patches are suppose to protect the elbows. But the patches came between my elbow and my wrist with the Large size, which I returned. The medium size came with the same problem, the patches still came between my elbows and my wrist. Very disappointed that the sweater doesn't even come in small size

              Ruggedly built for outdoor adventure but classic enough for evenings in town, this Shetland wool cardigan is an excellent choice for travel. Knit by a 135-year-old mill in Hawick, a town along the Teviot River in the southeastern Scottish Borders known for its knitwear. Along with angling in the local rivers, Hawick outdoor culture is marked by the annual Common Riding, where hundreds of riders on horseback celebrate a 16th-century victory over an English raiding party. This Shetland wool sweater is designed to withstand the brisk weather of the British Isles. Its natural water-resistance and moisture-wicking properties keep you warm and dry. Suede elbow patches and quilted suede on the chest help resist wear and tear from bags and camera straps. Suede trim on two front patch pockets.

              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.

              The simple design of our zip-front sweater hides a 500-year history of wool textiles in Scotland. The unique material—felted lamb’s-wool that’s softer and cozier than synthetic fleece, but with all the advantages of natural wool—is made by Lochaven in the heart of Scotland’s traditional textile district of Stewarton. Our grey-trimmed, felted lamb’s-wool sweater is soft and naturally water-resistant, both wind-resistant and breathable.

              National Geographic goes beyond the controversy and political wrangling of illegal immigration to see the real-world battles being waged by the men and women responsible for securing our borders. Every day, they intercept an illicit flow of narcotics, money and weapons headed both north and south across the border. The risks have never been higher, with the violence of the Mexican drug wars a stone's throw from U.S. soil and criminals armed with increasingly sophisticated technology challenging the most rigorous countermeasures.

This yoked cardigan is knit in Peterhead, Scotland, on the northeast coast of the mainland, using 100% merino wool from Ireland.
