Jumper Knitting kit
The Scilla Jumper is knitted in Cara, a 100% natural yarn made from recycled cashmere. This up-market yarn with its unrivalled softness gives a perfectly designed knitted stitch. The cut is straight and falls to the hips, with scooped armholes, a rounded neckline with a pattern on the front and back. Wear this sleeveless jumper next to your skin with a matching T-shirt or blouse. The Scilla Jumper is a distinguished cloth for a perfect, dressy outfit. You can also play with contrasts by wearing this jumper over jeans.

The maintenance of your jumper
Cashmere wool is a precious natural material that needs some care to be kept in perfect condition for a long time. Space out the washings and use little detergent. Air your jumper out to remove any bad smell. Hand wash preferably or machine wash if it has a wool balance cycle. Use water at a constant temperature <30 degrees. Rinse with clean water without adding softener. Squeeze without wringing and dry flat in a good ventilated area. Iron under the steam or using a damp cloth, in the 1-point position. Store your jumper in an unconfined area and change places your jumper regularly to avoid the creases.
