A favorite from the past has returned! The cardigan is in Emmys flattering signature silhouette that due to its short length pairs perfectly with dresses and high waisted pants. What distinguishes this from their other cardigans is the cable knit leaf vines and of course the fact that it is made in a hypoallergenic and vegan friendly cotton mix. Being just as heavy as its woolen winter equivalent “The ice skater cardigan”, this cardigan is suitable for wearing all year ‘round.
This garment is part of their first collection to consist of knitwear in two different fibers - their signature merino wool and this hypoallergenic and vegan friendly option. Cotton has many advantages, such as its ability to “breathe” and control moisture, its insulating ability to protect from heat in the Summer and cold in the Winter, its softness and its hypoallergenic and durable abilities. Modal is a manufactured fiber and a type of rayon but is not considered synthetic as it is made from natural cellulose from beech trees which is then turned into fiber using an environmentally-friendly process. Modal fibers are very soft, drapes well, resists creasing, and has a smooth lustrous finish. Modal is 50 % more resistant to shrinkage than cotton and tends to pill less. Furthermore, at 50 % more absorbent than cotton, Modal is excellent at wicking moisture away from the body and keeping you feeling fresh and cool. By combining 50 % cotton and 50 % modal we get the ultimate summer yarn with the softness of cotton and luster of modal!
Material: Heavy, warm and soft yarn in emerald green. 50% cotton, 50% modal. Hypoallergenic and vegan friendly.
