    Aubergine/Sherbet

    Our original cable cropped sweater is back in the raglan sleeve and garter stitch! 

    Our Women’s garter stitch alpaca knit with reverse cable details made from 100% organic baby alpaca. Designed by UMIFORM, our own Woollykins Women's label and ethically made in Peru in collaboration with My Alpaca Copenhagen.

    We lovethe length of this sweater and how it sits at the perfect length for wearing layered over dresses or high waisted skirts/pants. Flattering boxy style raglan jumper. With full length long arms with a long rib cuff that can be turned back or worn long to cover half of the hand. Knit in beautifully soft melange dyed baby alpaca yarn. Features a small cable on the back and a contrasting row of colour on the cuffs, neckline and waistband.

    Baby alpaca fibres are super soft and lightweight. It is known for providing super insulation due to the microscopic air pockets in the fibres, therefore it keeps you warm in the winter and cool in the summer. The same air pockets make the fibres feel as light as air and yet the fibre is very strong, meaning it lasts longer than most other similar fibres like wools, cashmere and silk. With care, alpaca knits become heirloom pieces that you will pass down through the generations. 

    Sizes: S/M, M/L

    Measurements taken flat across the front of garment. The knit is very stretchy.

    N.B: Alpaca fabric behaves differently to wool and tends to "drop" a little with wear.

    UMIFORM knitwear garments are handmade my alpaca Copenhagen, by skilled and organised groups of Peruvian women, following strict quality standards. They train and work with groups of women, promoting better livelihoods for them and their families. They use only fair-trade practices.

    Their Peruvian baby alpaca fibre comes from animals that graze the Andes naturally as they have done for many generations and are managed by small holders at altitudes of 3000-5000m. At those heights food cannot be grown so alpaca farming provides an income to families. Since the area is not cultivated or chemically fertilised or the animal's diet supplemented with feed, they graze on organic mountains although Organic Certification is not possible in those conditions. The animals are sheared by hand once a year.
