Hand knit oversized cardigan (Cashmere or Alpaca)
480,00 € – 850,00 €
I make this hand knit cardigan to order, using either Cashmere (from an ethical source) or fine Alpaca wool. It is designed to look oversized, so it comes in a standard size that fits most people (see the full description for the exact measurements). I can also custom-make it to your exact size if you send me a message with the details.
You can choose from a large palette of colors (please see the photos and choose your material and color).
Handwash only, at 30 C (details in the full description).
This cardigan is hand knit using ethical Cashmere or soft Alpaca wool. I don’t usually like oversized sweaters but this one just feels right. I love knitting with cashmere. Thanks to cashmere’s intrinsic charm and the versatile nature of the design, it goes well with many different outfits and has me feeling cozy and warm. I like to wear it open, or with a wide belt.
I can make a similar cardigan for you using high-quality cashmere yarn. Unfortunately, there is a lot of cheap cashmere on the market, made with mink fur instead of goat hair. This is a terrible industry that I don’t want to support, so I make sure to only buy cashmere from producers that make their yarns out of goat hairs that are naturally shed or gently harvested by combing. It is more expensive, but well worth it.
Alpaca, which is also very soft and warm, can be a great alternative for cashmere, at a lower price. I use high quality yarn with OEKO-TEX certification.
This is not a chunky cardigan by any means. The fabric is soft and thin, flowing around the body to create the perfect feeling for an early spring day.
Please choose your preferred color from the palette in the photos.
This cardigan is made to order in your desired size. In the photos I am wearing a cardigan that is about 85 cm from shoulder to hem, and about 125 cm across the chest and hips. I am 164 cm tall. This is to give you an idea of how large it should be in order to have this oversized look.
Care instructions: Handwash at 30°C (86 F) using special wool detergent. Do not use fabric softener. Do not soak. Do not bleach. Do not iron. Do not tumble dry. Dry flat.
Like all my pieces, this is made entirely by hand (not with a knitting machine), in a smoke-free and pet-free environment.
This is made to order, which means I start working on it after you place the order. First I order the yarn; I use suppliers nearby, so this takes only a couple of days. Then I start knitting. For an item this size, it usually takes me about 2-4 weeks to complete it.
