Size Guide


With its wide rib trim and pair of button-through pockets, this borrowed-from-the-boys shape dresses up or down with equal ease. Knit of organic 100% tanguis cotton from Peru, known for its long, silky fibers that hold their shape through a long day's wear, and many months and years of closet rotation.

  • 100% organic Tanguis cotton
  • Machine wash
  • 28-inch length (size Medium)
  • Gently shaped fit
  • Fairly made in Lima, Peru
Fair Indigo Premium Materials
While we select Peruvian Pima cotton for most of our garments, the ideal cotton for sweaters is Pima’s close cousin – Tanguis. Because sweaters employ a looser and different type of knit than fabric garments, the slightly thicker fibers of Tanguis cotton are ideal for fashioning incredibly soft, strong, and long-lasting sweaters.

How does it do good?
Our non-GMO organic cotton is grown on a small family-owned farm in the climactically ideal Ica region of Peru. The dyes are Oeko-tex certified - gentle on the earth, farmers, garment workers, and you. The garments are meticulously knit in a small fair trade workshop where employees are paid fairly and treated, like family, with dignity and respect.

This is the best cardigan of its type on the market
This "boyfriend" type cardigan from Fair Indigo is the best version I've found, among all the ones on the market. It is beautifully made and ,though cotton (wool itches me), it feels and looks like fine wool. The fit is great and graceful, just long enough to cover your behind but not too long. The ribbing at the wrists and hem is deep and nicely done.

I got the black and the dark teal colors.

Have been buying these for years!
These are my go to sweaters. I wear them all year round and with everything. I have them in 3 colors. My original one (a grass green) has been worn so much it is starting to get holes. I don't think it is too snug, but I buy small (an normally wear x-small) so I can wear it as a layering piece. I am 5'3", 112lbs.

True to size, nice quality
True to size--I ordered a medium in boysenberry, 5'6" 145 lbs, style is on the longer side but desirable. Very nice quality

Nice sweater
This is a soft, nice sweater. It runs small; if you don't want it snug, order a size up. The aquamarine is a darker color than pictured; more of a darkish teal.
