There is a straight cut that falls to the hips with set-in sleeves. It closes on the front with an edge decorated with golden buttons. Comfortable and soft, it is knitted in Luxor, a lightly haired 100% natural yarn made of alpaca, merino and cotton.

The maintenance of your cardigan
It is recommended to space out your washings and to use little detergent and no softener to keep your cardigan long. Air it out to remove any bad smell. Hand wash or machine wash if it has a wool balance cycle. The water temperature should not exceed 30 degrees as for rinsing. Squeeze without wringing and dry flat. The knitwear can be easily put in place by placing it on a hanger or the back of a chair for a few hours. Dry flat in an unconfined area.
