The Courbine striped jersey is a basic of its kind: a jumper with wide stripes and a boat neck. Its loose, straight shape with rolled-up sleeves makes it a pleasant cloth to wear casually. Soft and warm in winter, cool in summer, its yarn is made of mohair and silk, which gives the knitwear a lightness and beautiful silky highlights. Wear your striped jersey with jeans or canvas trousers, or for a dressier outfit, opt for high-waisted trousers.

Wash your jumper by hand in <30 degrees water with a mild detergent. Rinse generously without using softener. If your water is hard, add a few drops of vinegar to your rinse water. Dry flat in a ventilated area. To preserve your knit, space out the washings and air it often. Avoid to store it in a confined area.
