ABOUT THIS CARDIGAN KNITTING KIT
We’ve teamed up with our fellow sustainability pioneers Mother Of Pearl to take their best–selling “Blake” cardigan and create a signature DIY kit that is accessible to those knitters who are newer to the craft. Stitched up in our 100% natural Alpachino Merino, this cardigan will make a mark on your wardrobe, not the planet.
