Preppie nautical style in a vintage 1950s cardigan of pure cashmere. Wonderfully soft, lofty cream-colored wool. V-neck, collarless style with purl-stitched six-button placket and three-quarter raglan sleeves. Embroidered sailboat on left chest pocket. Luxurious and fully fashioned, meaning it was knitted to shape, not cut and assembled from blocky pieces. Full-fashioned knits are more expensive to make, more figure-flattering, and maintain their shape better over time.
Fiber/Care: 100% cashmere (medium weight, not too thin or too thick), dry-clean or gently hand-wash without rubbing to avoid felting. you can also use an agitator-free high-end HE washer with a wool cycle set to tap cold. lay flat to dry.
Condition: almost perfect, except for slight underarm darkening (mostly on the right). discoloration is inconspicuous. sweater is cozy, soft, luxurious, and in really good shape.
*This cashmere cardigan is freshly laundered and ready to wear.*
waist/high hip: 33"/84cm
