Origins Cardigan Natural
This unisex cardigan is knit entirely by hand in Vancouver, British Columbia by Granted Sweater Company using naturally-dyed wool that is ethically produced and sourced in Eastern Canada. Each sweater knit by our local artisans can take anywhere from 20-25 hours to produce.
Intarsia is a style of hand knit when a graphic or pattern is knit onto garments. While our versions may have many beautiful similarities, with respect to the Salish people from the Cowichan Valley of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, only their patterned garments are to be called “Cowichan”. These are not Cowichan sweaters. To this day, many Aboriginal knitters sustain a living by producing their original patterns.

This is a unisex garment, true to standard men's sizing.
All measurements are in inches and are indicative of the actual garment itself. Chest measurements are taken from 2" below the armpit. Length measurements are taken from the top of the neckline at the back to the bottom hemline at the back.
You can ensure a long life for your garment by dry cleaning it and by gently removing pills. Pills form when individual wool fibres rub up against each other and felt into small balls on the surface of the fabric. It's a natural and inevitable occurrence, and doesn't indicate any defect. Simply remove pills with your fingers or a commercial de-pilling device.
This garment is knit by hand in Richmond, British Columbia from wool that is ethically produced and sourced in Eastern Canada using natural dyes. All labels are made in Toronto, Ontario. Hang tags are produced in Vancouver, British Columbia and print material is printed in house.
Very warm. Fits well. High quality. Size wise it's true to women's sizing ie a medium = a women's medium in my opinion.
Like being wrapped in a blanket I'm never cold wearing this. Zipper is nice and substantial. Nice touch with the pockets but I wish they were a bit deeper. Other than that I'm happy with it!
