Details

A cocoon of delicious warmth, yet this sweater jacket's longer silhouette is slim and lightweight – doesn't overwhelm or overheat like many long cardigans can.

  • 85% conventional cotton, 15% alpaca
  • Hand wash
  • 30-inch length (size Medium)
  • Relaxed fit
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru
Fair Indigo Premium Materials
It’s incredible what adding 15% baby alpaca does for a cotton sweater. The result is a bit lighter, but significantly warmer, with a lustrous and beautiful drape. Our cotton/alpaca blend is an innovative fusion of yarns you won’t find anywhere else.
 
How does it do good?
Unlike cashmere, which has become environmentally disastrous and reliant on factory farms, our alpaca is sustainably herded in the Peruvian Andes where families have been tending their herds in the same time-honored methods for hundreds of years. The garments are knit in a small fair trade workshop where workers are paid fairly and treated with respect and dignity.

To ensure you get the best fit for your body type and fit preference, use the charts below. For best results, measure over undergarments at fullest part of your bust, at the natural bend in your waist (usually an inch or two above your belly button), and at the fullest part of your hip.

lovely but boxy for petites
I bought this in Navy XS during the Summer Sale. It was beautiful and cozy. However, it was boxy and too large for my small frame... and unflattering for a work setting. I was sad to send it back. I have several Fair Indigo pieces and am very pleased with this company and their products. This one just doesn't work for petite ladies.
