    Light Brown/Rust Fair isle

    *AW24 colourway in 2ply with a fine jacquard pattern in warm tones on a light brown undyed background*

    Women’s vintage style cardigan in textured knit pattern inspired by a classic Vintage Shetland FairIsle stranded colourwork sweater and 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.

    Fair Isle colour work is labour intensive and technically skilful. There are many colours used throughout this knit and all the many yarn ends are woven in by hand at the finishing stage.

    100% Baby Alpaca from Peru.
    Oeko Tex certified - Class 1. RWS Certified.

    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

    Colourway: Light Brown (undyed) with Fairisle details in Oatmeal, Aubergine, Sherbert and Rust (low impact dyes)

    Measurements taken flat across the front of garment unstretched. The knit is quite stretchy. 
    S-M - Length from shoulder to hem 53cm, Chest 52.5cm, Sleeve length 55.5cm
    M-L - Length from shoulder to hem 56cm, Chest 56cm, Sleeve 58cm

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

    Care: Air between uses. Handwash only when required. Reshape while damp and dry flat. Mend any thread pulls or holes immediately.

    produced in collaboration with my alpaca Copenhagen garments are handmade by skilled and organised groups of Peruvian women. My alpaca train and work with groups of women, promoting better livelihoods for them and their families.
