If you are looking for a gift for that special man in your life, consider this classic Slate Blue Tweed Cardigan that will show your love for him for years to come. As cozy as a hug, this Tweed Cardigan in Slate Blue 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 cardigan is generously sized to fit comfortably.
The Handmade Cardigan is a versatile blue-gray color. Along each strand of yarn are lighter sand-colored slubs and chunky black ones. Once knit, the slubs and the main yarn color combine to create a richly textured, incredibly soft sweater. The color of the sweater will appear to change from blue to gray depending on the lighting. The unique color coordinates particularly well with charcoal, khaki, black and all shades of denim.
Slate Blue Cardigan features a V-neck and two set-in pockets with ribbed detailing along their tops. It fastens with seven buttons the color of mica-rich pebbles. Their dark blue-gray main color with light and dark, speckled highlights coordinate with colors of the tweed slubs present in the yarn to bring the two materials together perfectly. Men's Slate Blue Cardigan is knit using a DK 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.
Imagine this classically tailored tweedy cardigan worn on chilly evenings while sitting in front of a roaring fire. Additionally, it is handsome enough to wear to work on casual Fridays or to church with a favorite tie. Dressed up or dressed down, it is sure to quickly become a favorite in his wardrobe.
