Eve is a light weight handknit cardigan in a dream blend of 70% pure merino wool and 30% mohair.
The yarn is spun in Donegal and the knitting is craftsmanship perfection.
The Eve shorter style cardigan is the perfect handknit for a modern handcrafted wardrobe staple.
Finished with five real olive wood buttons in a walnut tone.
Mohair is an incredibly light, soft and natural fiber with great strength. It brings a very delicate lustre.
The thermal warmth of mohair is magical and combined here with merino wool which has thermal warmth adjusting to your temperature needs.
This is a great choice for someone who loves natural fibres that are soft enough for bare skin!
Merino and mohair both have natural stretch which creates a neater contour or fit.
A natural and sustainable choice that will wear for years.
The blackberry stitch cannot be made by any machine.
The rib borders are firm for stretch and last with a cabled detailing throughout.
The garment is strongly hand stitched in wool and the craft-womanship so skilled that you may want to wear it reversed too! 100% HANDMADE
Sizes One Small Medium Deep Purple and One Medium Emerald (other sizes to order)
Composition 30% mohair and 70% merino wool spun in Donegal Ireland

How to care for me
Maybe you’ve never owned one of me before?
Here’s my experience so far;
I’d prefer not to be stuck in that dark press but when I must go in there just roll me up loosely first.
I don’t need much washing although my Italian cousins say that I’m a gorgeous natural thing and washing improves me!
When washing make it no higher than 30 degrees and please only a wool recommended detergent. Squeeze all the water out after handwashing me, even roll me up in a towel to do this! Dry me flat on my back.
Keep direct sunlight away from my cables!
Edel and many of her long-term clients machine wash my friends. Hopefully they never put them in the drum at higher than 30 degrees or with nasty biological stuff!!!! The horror.
I’m terrified of the tumble dryer, please never do that to me.
Through Summer if you don’t need me (I hope you will), store me in an airtight zip bag please and I’ll get a rest with no disruption. I hope to spend a lifetime with you, but if you want to give me to a friend or send me to a charity store for a break that’s OK.
My wool is so healthy to wear and antibacterial, plus you’ll be living off the compliments.
