Product Details

Back by popular demand, our Carita Sweater (which you may remember from our 2020 'Isle' collection) is the ultimate soft and stylish sweater. Crafted from a super soft alpaca blend, the dropped shoulder silhouette is accentuated by the slight boxy shape, intended to fit as a comfortable and relaxed style and is finished with subtle button details. The transeasonal weight of this design makes it perfect for wearing year-round whenever you need a hint of extra warmth. Pair with the matching Carita Scarf.

    Material

    40% Nylon, 30% Merino Wool & 30% Alpaca

    This knitted blend has temperature regulating qualities, with wool retaining warmth when needed, while remaining cool and breathable on the body. Alpaca creates a fluffy finish for that cosy, comfortable feel. The nylon allows for a strong, durable finish that will keep your knitwear lasting longer.

    Alpaca is generally farmed using lower impact traditional methods. Their soft hooves reduce the amount of soil erosion caused from alpaca farming, allowing for minimal damage to the land used for farming.

    The merino wool in this blend is sourced from Australian sheep, and our alpaca wool is sourced from farms in the Peruvian highlands.

    Wool and alpaca fibres are natural, renewable and biodegradable.

    Maker

    These knits were made by Hop Hing Woollen Sweaters Factory who we have been working with since 2007. They are a family owned business established by the late Mr Tsui Senior in 1962. Now owned and managed by his son Jeff, they have their head office, development team and sampling in Hong Kong and their main manufacturing in Dongguan, China.

    We visit Hop Hing at least once a year and have a great, long term working relationship with them. We are actively working to source the most sustainable yarns with them through Novetex and UPW. Jeff's team is highly experienced, and their operation has full, onsite capabilities including washing and finishing.

    Size and Fit

    We have designed this sweater for a loose and light fit which is ultra-comfortable and easy to wear. With the dropped shoulder however, if you prefer a neater fit, you could choose to go down one size for a more fitted silhouette.
