The Design

"Soft & timeless."

A timeless little cardi always manages to look modern. Ours has classic details: a pretty jewel neckline; knit-a-long button bands; full- or bracelet-length sleeves. In eight sizes and with two sleeve lengths, you can make this cardigan just right for you.

Rowan Alpaca Soft DK—a DK-weight blend of merino and alpaca—creates a Quintessential Cardigan that’s soft, yet sturdy. Four-plied with a snug spin, Alpaca Soft DK is lightweight, yet warm and bouncy. The firm, springy fabric has great stitch definition—perfect for this wardrobe classic!
