Elswick Cardigan in Ecru
Vintage hand-knit inspired, this knit is long country walk, cup-of-tea-in-a-china-cup and silk dress in front of a roaring fireplace rolled into one. Knit in a luxurious weight this cardigan is to be slung on as a cardy-coat in autumn and then layered in the depth of winter to keep the draughts and chill out.
Our Elswick Collection are everyday supersoft jersey knits with HERD's signature elevated touches - a scalloped edge, a chunky rib, blouson sleeves and lace detailing on the pocket.
A longer knit.
Detail - The Elswick Cardigan is long-ish, with raglan shoulders, a blouson sleeve, bud & vine detailing on the pocket and sweetly scalloped edge on the hem and cuffs.
Wool - The Elswick Cardigan is made from our very own traceable soft Bluefaced Leicester sheep wool, which we source ourselves at a fair price from farmers in N.W. England and processed and make within 150 miles of the farms. We then either blend the yarn to make natural shades, or dye using plant extracts and naturally occurring mordants. Our buttons are made from nuts, our labels are 100% cotton, so your knit is fully circular.
Proudly knitted by skilled craftspeople in England.
Washing - Hand wash in cool water if needed.
Size & fit - The Elswick Cardigan has an oversized fit. Models wear a size Small (U8 - 10) in Ecru and Peat.
Colours - Available in Ecru, Peat, Moss and Mist.
