FEATURES: This 100% mercerised merino wool cardigan is knitted locally by our very special knitter who we have worked with for over 10 years! Knitting locally is something we are passionate about and also allows us to pick and choose our own colours! The mercerisation of the merino cleverly means there will be minimal pilling and that the fibres will last longer and not get fuzzy after a few wears. We have also picked some of our favourite fabrics for the covered buttons, with each cardigan having a perfect match chosen for it. And of course, we get all the buttons made locally in Sydney too!
Our brand new Primrose cardigan features a perfect cropped length which works wonders for in between weather, but is also a dressier look! For this version we have added a full length sleeve now that winter has hit. The ribbed waistband is designed to pull the bottom in slightly and make silhouette come in at your waist, showing off your best features! We love this double jacquard knit which we use for this animal design knit, which is doubly as warm as our usual knits, but also the cardy itself is never too heavy to carry in your handbag all day, but the merino is warm enough to prevent you getting caught out on a chilly day too. We love this leopard knit which is such a standout piece to wear with other prints in similar tones or with your plainest outfit too. If you are after a really fancy knit to dress up your plain colours or little black dress, this is the one!
HOW TO WEAR: This cardigan is a great piece for winter and is able to be worn as a layer with lots of different outfits. You can take it on trips to the park or wear it to the office and then out to dinner afterwards! Worn with your favourite brooch this cardigan is sure to become a favourite of your wardrobe! We love the layered look, so pair this with a dress or high waisted skirt, button it up and wear it like a top with any of our higher waisted skirts like Valentina, Rayna or Sunset, or wear it open over other layers, it is so versatile and has endless combinations. We have created our Clementine cardigans for years now, and made590 regulars as well as staff all LIVE in their Clementines so we thought she needed a little sister! We will look forward to wearing these every year when that first cool weather hits, they are the perfect dressy length compared to our Clementines which are a slightly more casual look. The cropped length and fitted body shape of Primrose is so good to dress up any outfit and is a neat silhouette for work too.
KNIT: Animal print jacquard knit with a two tone colour way. The same as our previous animal knits we have done, this colour way is light pink with mid pink base, ribbed sleeves and plackets. This animal knit is a great pattern to wear with larger prints. We love this one worn with our plaids and also smaller prints such as our Primrose flowers.
COLOUR: Mid pink background with pale pink spots. The knits is mid pink on the plackets and ribbing. Hot pink buttons finish off this knit and make it a perfect piece!

Please note that when you first put on your cardy this is the smallest it will be as the fibres have not yet relaxed. Your knit will soften and give over time so don't be afraid to stick with a size if it feels snug initially. We recommend you get a size if it will button smoothly over your chest. Wool will give at least 1-1.5cm so if the buttons gape ever so slightly at the bust this will end up a perfect fit once the cardigan is allowed to give through wearing. Please take care when putting on your cardy and don’t pull onto your arm at the end of the sleeves, as this will break the inner arm seams (wear the cardigan is sewn together) and create open seams. Instead gently ease sleeves onto your arm and allow the cardigan time to relax.
FABRIC: 100% Mercerised Merino Wool, double layer jacquard knit which is extra warm and cosy.
MODEL SIZES: Phee wears S for photos and normally wear size XS. Tahnee wears XL and normally wears 2X in clothing.
CARE: We recommend treating your cardigans as carefully as possible, to allow you to wear them for years to come. We wash ours only when really needed, as wool is a very breathable and resilient fibre. To wash place your cardigan in a delicates bag, wash only with mild wool wash detergent, on a delicates cycle. Alternatively a soft hand wash using wool detergent will keep your cardigan looking even better for longer. Never wring, rub or bleach your cardigan.
COLD WATER WASH ONLY. Reshape when wet and allow to dry laying flat in shade. Do not wash with anything that might rub or create pulls in the wool. If you do snag your cardigan on something, pull the thread gently to the inside of your cardigan and NEVER cut the threads, this will unravel the knit and create a hole. Wash at the end of the season (to avoid moth damage, they like to eat the dirty bits of wool!) and store your cardigan with cedar balls when not being worn, as moths find these 100% wool cardigans very tasty!
Designed and Made in Sydney, Australia. We use local makers we have worked one on one with for many years. All knitwear is locally knitted by one of the last knitters in Australia!
