The Karah Sweater is a classic wardrobe staple that you will find new ways to wear season after season. The lightweight wool-blend knit features a flattering mock turtle neck and a slightly wider cut throughout the body which makes it an ideal transeasonal layering piece. Considering tucking into a pair of pants for a smart ensemble that evokes classic elegance.
MATERIAL & MAKERS NOTES:
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 cozy, 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 sheep, and our alpaca Wool is sourced from farms in the Peruvian highlands. Wool and alpaca fibers 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.
