We are SO excited about our best selling shape in our knitwear family, the Primrose Cropped Cardigan! If you’re looking for the perfect 100% merino winter cardigan that is a snuggly, dressy, and the most wonderful cropped length, then look no further!
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!
100% mercerised Merino wool
Hand picked and dyed wool colours exclusive to made590
Cropped length hits below the waistline with a little extra length
Dressy length great paired with dresses with a high waist
Ribbed waistband is designed to pull the bottom in slightly and make silhouette come in
Textured knit which gives this cardigan a lovely warm look without too much bulk
Liberty covered buttons which use offcuts from our garment production
Turn under front bind (this is a new style of finish we are so happy with!) which is streamline at the front so the knit pattern goes to the edge and is reinforced at the back with merino knit binding
HOW TO WEAR:
Perfect for layering, wear over your favourite winter top paired with a skirt, or any of our favourite made590 dresses like Saski, Patty or Jenny
She works so well with high waisted jeans, pants or even for work as a warm layer under your favourite blazer or coat
Pair Primrose with anything from our range, she works paricularly well with skirts like Valentina, Bonnie, Rayna or Paige
KNIT: Patchwork knit, this is a larger diamond design that holds smaller shapes inside them. A very beautiful textured knit which has lovely details.
COLOUR: A lighter magenta tone, on the side of purplish pink not coral or baby pink. A few tones lighter than cerise in the Clementine cut for this season, but in the same spectrum of pinks as the cerise.
SIZING: XS – 5X
Please scroll to the bottom of the listing for our size chart, these are taken flat and unstretched. When reading our size chart please keep in mind that measurements are approximate only, as they are hand measured and the knit has a lot of give! Feel free to contact us directly if you'd like help finding your perfect size!
MODEL SIZES: Liza wears size S for photos.
Please also have a look at the last image in the listing for our measurements, these are taken unstretched.
Please note that when you first put on your cardie 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 cardie and don’t pull onto your arm at the end of the sleeves, as this will break the inner arm seams (where 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*, buttons are metal with 100% cotton covering. Buttons on this cardigan are Strawberry Thief by Liberty of London.
*Mercerised Merino wool means it is a high spun merino fibre which all the fuzzy strands have been shaved off to create a completely smooth fibre with a glossy feel. This makes the knits have a completely soft feel and they are highly resistant to pilling.
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!
