So warm, yet so cool

 

Beloved by ancient mariners for its protection against the elements and by style-making movie stars (hello, Steve McQueen!) for its cool factor. Equal parts coat and sweater, this cardigan is made with a generous 2.5 pounds of the world’s softest lambswool.

The dramatic, rounded shawl collar creates a soft cushion around the neck that can be turned up to provide a buffer against the wind. Elongated cuffs can be neatly folded back for a shorter sleeve length, while it's a slightly roomier fit allows for easy movement and layering.

Without being overly mannered it has manners, elevated but not off putting. Just pared down to the most gorgeous, elemental form and function. Designed for durability, warmth, and timeless style, it’s one you’ll reach for season after season.

A LUXURY FABRIC THAT LIVES UP TO THE HYPE
Todd & Duncan Superfine Lambswool Yarn

100% superfine lambswool of the highest quality, sourced from a special breed of South African sheep. This the world's finest, softest lambswool. Its fibers offer insulating warmth that’s also comfortably breathable with a softness that’s almost a cliche.

From this raw lamsbwool our partner Todd and Duncan build on their 150+ years of experience to produce yarn using only the longest and finest (18.5 micron) strands, resulting in garments that minimize pilling and maintain their softness and shape. They last a lifetime with proper care.
