Your new favorite cardigan this season and for many more to come. A minimalist design in a waffle knit that pairs with just about anything in your closet, you’ll reach for it time and again.

  • Machine wash gentle, lay flat to dry
  • Closure-free front with 2 handy pockets
  • 27.5-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?
The most well-known luxury wool – cashmere - has become environmentally disastrous and heavily reliant on factory farms. Our alpaca, by contrast, is sustainably herded in the Andes Mountains 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.

Surprisingly quirky but I love it
I am 5'10 and love the fit, which is generous (the M fits like a L) in length and width. For me this is a beautiful, cozy winner, but be aware this is bulky, not sleek. The design is ambiguous, for me in a good way: depending on what I wear it with, it can be very casual or a jacket substitute. The ultramarine is a lovely color, great with black and silver.

Perfect for layering!
I have this sweater in 2 colors and I love them! I wear them over my sweater dresses and also with jeans. I'm 5"8", 135 pounds and medium fits comfortably.

Great color and texture, but...
The arms are too long (for 5'4" - size S). Sadly, I don't care for the look when rolled up. The collar required a bit of fiddling - not a piece I could throw on and go.
