Emmy has sourced a bit further back in history than usual to come up with this 1910-1920s inspired collegiate shawl collar cardigan.
The long cuffed sleeves, the high shawl collar, the hip length and the patch pockets all contribute to the snugness of this piece - Perfect for the chilly office, or the drafty old University for that matter! The classiness is just a bonus! The included belt emphasizes your waist for an extra feminine touch and is an historically correct attribute from womenswear from the Edwardian era. But don’t let the historical point of view stop you from being creative with your outfits! Combine it with a neat skirt or a trendy pair of jeans! The material used for this garment is used for most our knits, both in Winter and Summertime. The yarn is in 100 % merino wool in the highest possible quality used by Europe’s most renowned luxury brands. Wool's inherent breathability and moisture-wicking properties help regulate body temperature, keeping you cool in the Summer and warm in the Winter. The breathability of wool doesn’t feel clammy when you sweat and prevents you from overheating. Wool also stays fresh long, cutting down on washes. Let it air out between wears and when it eventually needs washing just follow the care label and machine wash it at wool settings or by hand with mild washing detergent. Wool is infamously itchy, but we use only the softest fibers and the softness is even further enhanced by a softening treatment to each garment. All new customers are pleasantly surprised by the extreme softness of our knitwear. Furthermore, wool is very durable and will last a lifetime if cared for properly. In other words, buying an emmy knit in pure wool is money well spent!
