    *Last of the Gansey Cardigan in AW23 colour Salt & Pepper. A piece to cherish forever*

    Women’s vintage style cardigan in textured knit pattern inspired by the classic Gansey fishermen's 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.

    AW23 edition is in a 2ply making it a less chunky knit than AW22 with more bounce and the pattern really pops in texture. We love it even more!

    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

    Measurements taken flat across the front of garment unstretched. The knit is quite stretchy. 
    S-M - Length from shoulder to hem 49cm, Chest 56cm, Sleeve length 54cm
    M-L - Length from shoulder to hem 54cm, Chest 58cm, Sleeve 56cm

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

    Colours: Salt & Pepper (low impact dyes), also available in Peacock and an undyed Highland Wool in Grey/Brown (listed separately)

    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.
