Size Guide
Ecru Fairisle

*New season style - Fair Isle Vintage Style Pattern.*

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

100% Baby Alpaca from Peru.
Fair Trade, Oeko Tex certified 100 - Class 1. RWS/RAS Certified (Responsible Wool/Alpaca Standard)

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

Colours: Ecru (undyed) with details in Light Grey (undyed), Forest Green, Rose, Royal Blue (low impact dyes)

Also available in a Light Grey/Brown (listed separately)

Measurements taken flat across the front of garment unstretched. The knit is quite stretchy. 
S-M - Length from shoulder to hem 52cm, Chest 52cm, Sleeve length 62cm
M-L - Length from shoulder to hem 56cm, Chest 56cm, Sleeve 65cm

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.
