Classically tailored, this Hand Knit Sandstone Tweed Cardigan would be so comfortable to wear while reading the paper on chilly Sunday mornings. It is handsome enough to wear to work on casual Fridays or to church paired with a favorite tie. Dressed up or dressed down, this sweater is sure to quickly become a favorite in his wardrobe.
As cozy as a hug, this Sandstone colored Tweed Cardigan is silky soft and is hand knit of a fine merino wool / alpaca / Donegal tweed yarn. There is no scratching, pricking or coarseness to it at all. The mid-weight fabric has a wonderful drape and a comfortable, broken-in look to it already. There is no stiffness with this sweater as there are with some. The sweater is generously sized to fit comfortably.
The soft, neutral Sandstone beige color of this cardigan will coordinate with nearly every color in his wardrobe. This shade goes particularly well with browns, blues, black, charcoal and all shades of denim. It looks equally well with white and cream shirts.
The cardigan has a V-neck and two set-in pockets with ribbed detailing along their tops. It fastens with six variegated buttons with swirls of brown and stormy gray. The colors of the buttons also mirror the colors of the tweed slubs present in the yarn to bring the two materials together. The buttons are made of recycled plastic which not only reduces the amount of raw materials needed to make a new product, but cuts back on what has to be thrown away.
This cardigan is knit using a DK (double knit) weight yarn which is finer than worsted weight and therefore has more stitches per square inch. The fabric is often softer and more flexible as well.
If you are looking for a gift for that special man in your life, consider this classic tweed cardigan that will show your love for him for years to come.
