A fine knit, perfect for cool summer evenings
Our merino wool crewneck sweater was particularly well received by you last winter, "Very nice color and high quality knit. I feel very comfortable in it!". So it was only logical that we worked on the summer version of this basic essential of the men's wardrobe.
Because while summer days are nice and warm, the evenings can sometimes get quite chilly, especially if you've spent hours heating up in the blazing sun. So if you're rushing from the office straight to the after-work party on the rooftop terrace, or your neighbor's barbecue goes late into the night, a lightweight crewneck sweater is just the thing. In addition, the fine knit sweater does not take up much space in your holiday luggage!
Organic cotton and recycled cashmere
To get our crewneck sweater summer ready, we swapped merino wool for cotton, because the most sought-after plant fiber is hypoallergenic, soft, absorbent and lightweight. Ours is organically grown, so irrigation is kept to a minimum and no harmful products for people or the environment are used.
Our winter sweater was so soft you'd think it was made of cashmere. For the summer version, we actually added 5% cashmere to make the sweater even softer, but not heavier. And to promote a sustainable circular economy, we chose recycled cashmere yarn.
100 % made in Italy
In the late 1960s, the needles in our sweater knitting mill threaded for the first time. Almost half a century later, the small atelier near Florence in Italy, has become a company specialising in knitwear and accessories. But it is still the same family that runs the knitting machines.
In order to avoid fabric waste and get a nicer fit that is close to made-to-measure, we decided to use the fully-fashioned fabrication method. The different parts of the sweater are knitted directly into shape and then sewn together. The result: harmonious proportions, clean and robust seams.
A lightweight fine knit
To find out if this sweater is suitable for the summer season, you don't have to take our word for it. But you can rely on the numbers of weight and gauge!
In a sweater, the weight is related to its density. And our sweater has a weight of 250 g, which puts it in the category of light sweaters. A sweater with this weight is ideal for cool summer evenings, during the day in spring or under a blazer in winter.
The gauge number indicates the thickness of knitwear. It corresponds to the number of needles on a knitting machine on an area of one inch. The higher the gauge, the thinner the sweater and the less it insulates against the cold. Our round collar sweater has a gauge of 14, which is considered a very fine knit.
A machine washable cashmere sweater
Does thinking about washing a cashmere sweater give you panic attacks? Don't worry, we're not big fans of hand washing either, so this cotton cashmere sweater can be machine washed without a problem! Choose a delicate wash program at 30°C max and set the spin speed to 800/900 revolutions so the cotton fibers don't break. Afterwards, let it air dry laid out flat.
The golden rules: Always rely on the sewn-in care labels and wash your clothes as little as possible. Between two washes, it is perfectly sufficient to air out the clothes on a chair or hanger. And the environment will thank you for it!
A crewneck sweater is like a t-shirt, only with long sleeves. If you have 2-3 of these so-called "basics", in good quality, you can create many different looks: over a t-shirt or a shirt for the first, still somewhat cool summer days. Under a blazer or a denim shirt in the morning. The key word is layering. And for the bottoms, everything is possible: from shorts to chinos and from jeans to suit trousers. In terms of color, we've kept it very classic and simple, with four colors in blue-grey-green mottled tones. This makes it very easy to combine the crewneck sweater with your other clothes.
