Cotton cardigan to knit
The Alosia cardigan is a straight cut with fitted sleeves model, open at the front. The wide neckline allows the top of the bust to be free for maximum comfort. The 3/4 sleeves enhance the elegance of the cloth. It is knitted with a cotton yarn enhanced with a metallic yarn that brings an extra shine to the mottled color.
Wear the Alosia cardigan on any occasion, for a dressy or casual outfit, over straight trousers, jeans or skirts, or even shorts. It will look great over a white vest top or in combination with the Arusta top, knitted with the same yarn.

Maintain your cardigan
