The knitted tie band cardigan in pure linen is a favourite style from our archive. It was originally designed for the spring 2009 collection and named "the Baiba cardigan" after the owner of our small knitting factory. Round neck with tie band, long raglan sleeves and wide decorative hem at cuffs and bottom. Normal fit. This cardigan is perfect to style as over dresses cold Nordic summer evenings. Knitted linen is a bit see-through and at first you can find the linen a bit harsh, but as soon as you start wearing the garment it will become softer. Steam your garment lightly after wash.
Made in Latvia
Knitwear in pure linen is one of our specialties. All garments are fully fashion knitted on hand machines in our little factory in Latvia by Erica, Baiba and their colleagues. To knit fully fashion means that you knit each garment part separately and shape it just like you do when you hand knit. Knitting like this compared to knitting a big fabric to then cut and sew it, is that you hardy waste any material at all. If you look closely at armholes and necklines you will see the beautiful fully-fashioned loops creating the shape. Counting loops, rather than centimetres, secures the high quality of our knitted garments. The garments are washed and pre-shrunk. At first you can find the linen a bit harsh but as soon as you start wearing the garment it will become softer and softer with a lustre almost like silk. Press your garment lightly with steam after wash. The raw material for this linen grows in France, Belgium and Poland and is spun in Lithuania.
Wash by hand.
