Wrap yourself in our Joren Cardigan for the ultimate cosy winter look. This classic, Grandpa-style cardigan is made from a lofty, soft yarn knitted into a lightweight, chunky design with dropped shoulders and relaxed sleeves for a cosy, laid-back fit in a range of beautiful colours. An ideal piece for layering, we recommend styling over an everyday T-shirt or with a pair of wide-leg jeans for a warm and relaxed outfit.
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 by alpaca farming, allowing for minimal damage to the land used for farming.
The merino wool in this blend is sourced from Australian non-mulesed 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
Elk have designed this cardigan as a cosy, loose-knit perfect for shrugging into cooler weather with a slightly cropped silhouette. If you prefer a neater fit, you could choose to go down a size.
