Jumper to knit in kit
The Elm jumper is knitted with Céleste, a yarn made of baby alpaca and silk. This ultra-soft and warm wool brings comfort and sensuality with its puffy and soft stitch. The jumper is cut straight down to the hips, with set-in sleeves and a rounded neckline. The contrasting stripes highlight the bottom of the jumper and the sleeves. Wear the Elm jumper on any occasion with skirt or trousers by combining colors. For a dressier outfit, tie a silk scarf around your neck.

Select your size that suits you, if necessary, help you with the size guide to determine the size.
The kit contains everything you need to make the Elm jumper: wool balls in the chosen color and in sufficient quantity according to the size to knit, needles and the knitting pattern with all the step-by-step explanations for all sizes from S to XL with dimensional drawings.

Céleste is an up-market baby alpaca yarn on a silk base. To keep your jumper for a long time, space out the washings and use little detergent. Wash by hand at <30 degrees or in the washing machine on the "wool" cycle. Rinse with clean water without adding softener. Squeeze without wringing and dry flat. If your jumper has a bad smell, air it out for few hours. Store flat your jumper in a dust-free, unconfined area.
