Introducing the Cashmere Painter's Shawl Collar Cardigan

Inspired by the relaxed cardigans championed by 20th century painters like David Hockney, our painter's shawl collar cardigan is designed to have a lovely drape when left unbuttoned but smart when buttoned up - the shawl collar shape emulating the lapel roll on a tailored jacket. Knitted densely in Scotland in a soft, luscious and thick 4-ply cashmere, the knitted fabric has an incredibly substantial "heritage" hand feel, whilst being unbelievably soft against the skin. It is the ideal "mid weight" cardigan for wearing at the office in place of a jacket or for layering under outerwear.
