We are SO excited to bring back our favourite Primrose Cropped Cardigan from last season, Primrose! 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! We are also very excited to announce we have extended the sizing of our cardigans and added a size 4X this season so even more people get to wear our amazing knits.
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 by our good friend Mick!
Our favourite Primrose cardigan features a perfect cropped length which works wonders for in between weather, but with a practical long sleeve for extra warmth! 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 the textured knit which gives this cardigan a lovely warm look without too much bulk. 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 one of a kind knit we have developed as you wont get it anywhere else. You also get a nice amount of give in these knits over time which means they feel comfy and warm and stretch to perfectly fit you.
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 or Sunset, or wear it open over other layers, it is so versatile and has endless combinations. We find this v-neckline is particularly good for layering with different necklines. 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. Enjoy this cardigan in a plain colour, or our super special floral knit version!
KNIT: Our custom Flannel Flower knit has been developed specifically for us! We worked with our knitter Bill and old school programmer extraordinaire Neil for weeks to create this little bit of Australiana for winter 2020. A You wont see this knit anywhere else! This knit is SO thick and amazingly warm. We have found it has come in a size smaller than our usual knitwear, so please size up one size!
COLOUR: Rust colour base with pale blue, cream and chartreuse knit colours. All colours hand picked by us! Please note because of the four layered knit, when the knit stretches you will see the colours underneath and it will not be a flat rust, as the outside layer is rust knit, but some of the lighter colours can be seen through it when stretched, particularly around the neckline and edges. This is all part of the charm of owning a multi layer knit which is soooo warm and we do not consider this a flaw.
FIT NOTES: This knit is a much tighter fit in this Flannel Flower knit than our regular knits as you are getting multi layered merino. Please note we highly recommend you size up for this knit, as least one size. If you size up one size you will have a normal fit which is firm on the sleeves and in the fit of the body. If you size up two sizes you will get a roomy fit which is still structured.
FABRIC: 100% mercerised Australian merino wool.
CARDIGAN 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!
