ELK - Nilsen Sweater - Ombre
Everyday comfort meets luxurious texture in the Nilsen Sweater. This relaxed, boxy fit sweater features neat buttons on the shoulder, a crew neckline and long, comfortable sleeves which makes it an ideal winter warmer. With an ombre-effect, brushed finish which puts a directional spin on a classic check inspired by the natural hues of Autumn, you will love the feel of the soft Alpaca-blend wool.
60% Wool, 20% Alpaca & 20% Nylon
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. The garment undergoes a brushing process that creates an extra fluffy and cosy finish.
Alpaca is generally farmed using lower impact traditional methods. Their soft hooves reduce the amount of soil erosion caused by 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.
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 & 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.
