The Nilsen Cardigan is a statement knit which is sure to elevate your winter outfits. Please note, the arm length is longer than represented in the studio images. The Street Style image is the truer representation of the fit.
Crafted from a brushed, fluffy finish yarn which has been knitted into a check pattern before being brushed to create a blurred, directional take on the classic check with an ombre effect inspired by the colours of mossy branches and Autumnal weather. Perfect for wrapping yourself in throughout the cooler months, you can switch up the silhouette by cinching with a leather belt to create an entirely new silhouette.
60% Wool, 20% Alpaca & 20% Nylon
This knitted blend has temperature regulating qualities, with wool retaining warmth when needed, while remaining cool and breathable on the body. Alpaca creates a fluffy finish for that cosy, comfortable feel. The nylon allows for a strong, durable finish that will keep your knitwear lasting longer. The garment undergoes a brushing process that creates the extra fluffy and cosy finish.
Alpaca is generally farmed using lower impact traditional methods. Their soft hooves reduce the amount of soil erosion caused from alpaca farming, allowing for minimal damage to the land used for farming.
The merino wool in this blend is sourced from Australian sheep, and our alpaca wool is sourced from farms in the Peruvian highlands.
Wool and alpaca fibres are natural, renewable and biodegradable.
These knits were made by Hop Hing Woollen Sweaters Factory who we have been working with since 2007. They are a family-owned business established by the late Mr Tsui Senior in 1962. Now owned and managed by his son Jeff, they have their head office, development team and sampling in Hong Kong and their main manufacturing in Dongguan, China. We visit Hop Hing at least once a year and have a great, long-term working relationship with them. We are actively working to source the most sustainable yarns with them through Novetex and UPW. Jeff's team is highly experienced, and their operation has full, onsite capabilities including washing and finishing.
