Acacia Cashmere Vintage Cardigan

£84.00£99.00

Clear

Our best selling iconic Vintage Cardigan was the very first design we made at Olivier London. The rose stitch design was inspired by vintage knits from our childhood.  Made from a thicker 6 ply cashmere this luxurious cardigan is the epitome of style. Made to be passed down from generation to generation. New for this season, Acacia, named after a wild shrub of yellow flowers, is a warming yellow that complements our fabulous new Liberty Print collection.

Made from 100% cashmere.

A little bit about our Cashmere

Our Cashmere is produced in Scotland using methods that have been passed down from generation to generation. As comfortable to wear on a summers afternoon as it is on a cold winter’s day.

Using traditional techniques that have been refined over centuries our cashmere pills less than any other. Made to last and be passed down from one generation to the next.

Our cashmere story starts with hardy mountain dwelling goats that have adapted to live in the harsh environments and extreme temperatures of the Gobi Desert.

To survive, the goats develop wonderfully thick coats made up of a coarse outer guard hair and a fine, soft undercoat. Our cashmere comes from only the finest downy undercoat. This yields a tiny amount: it takes fibre from one goat to knit a scarf, three to make a sweater!

Traditionally, farmers would collect cashmere fibre by ceremonially combing their goats in the spring. Combing is still widely used today, alongside some farmers who prefer shearing. Our cashmere is sourced from sustainable herding and grazing practices, that promote high standards of animal welfare, and work to protect this traditional way of life within nomadic communities.

Washing Instructions – 100% Cashmere

The best way to wash your Olivier London cashmere is to hand wash using the basic instructions below. If it is particularly dirty you can put it on a cold/cool wool wash with a very low spin on the machine. It is best to use cashmere/wool specific detergents like Woolite. We do not advise that you wash our pompom hats in the machine as the pompoms will come apart. For all items with buttons we recommend you undo the buttons before washing.

For Hand Washing

  1.  Soak the item in lukewarm water using a mild detergent like Woolite.
  2.  Gently distribute the suds.  DO NOT WRING (as this will encourage the item to stretch)
  3.  Rinse the item thoroughly in clean lukewarm water
  4.  Squeeze the item of excess water gently or put it in the washing machine on the lightest spin.
  5.  Reshape item and dry as flat away from direct sunlight.
  6.  Once item is dry, iron on a cool setting.

Washing Instructions – 100% Cotton

The best way to wash your Olivier London Liberty Print Tana Lawn product is to turn it inside out and wash with a mild detergent at 30 degrees or cold in your machine using a mild detergent. Do not tumble dry and once dry iron back to original shape.
