A fancy stitch cardigan
Very pleasant to wear, the Voss cardigan is a must-have for any wardrobe. Its refined cut brings a lot of feminine elegance to the silhouette.
The cardigan is knitted in Top Hair, a yarn made of mohair and silk. The naturally puffy stitch, reinforced by the fancy stitch, makes it a warm, light and ultra-soft knit. The Voss cardigan has a straight cut that falls to the hips, with straight sleeves and a plunging opening at the front, in the shape of a heart. The buttons, dyed in the color of the yarn, give it a very nice finish. Wear this cardigan with high-waisted trousers or a straight skirt and a top with a rounded collar. A lace trim can enhance the chic of a very feminine outfit.

To keep your cardigan for a long time, air it out often and space out the washings. Avoid wearing it several days in a row. Wash your cardigan by hand with lukewarm water (30 degrees) with a wool detergent. Rinse it with clean water without adding softener. Squeeze out to excess water, without wringing, and dry flat. Generally, mohair cannot be ironed, but you can use the steam of the iron, at a low temperature (wool setting), to shape the knit.
