- Blue handspun Angora Rabbit fiber blended with Merino wool and Silk – Size Medium 9-12 months (sorry this one is sold)
- Creamy White Merino wool and Silk blend – Size Small 0-6 months (available)
The simple lines and classic styling of this little jacket make it an heirloom classic. It is intended to be passed on to the next generation without ever going out of style. With proper care it will last for a long time.
This luxury handspun, handknit garter stitch baby cardigan is so cuddly, warm and versatile. You don’t have to worry about this sweater being itchy because of the wool. The Merino Wool and silk blend is soft enough to wear next to new baby skin and the Angora is heavenly soft.
The sweater is designed with lots of ease for comfort and style and should fit your baby for a long time.
The pattern is a simple garter stitch which does not detract from the beauty of the yarn or distract the viewers eye. I have used a beautiful focal point pewter sheep button for the front closure.
- The Cream version is size Small – approximately 3-6 months
- it measures 20 inches around and 9.5 inches in length.
- The Blue version is size Medium – 6-12 months (sorry this one is sold)
- it measures 22 inches around and 10 inches in length
This baby sweater is made completely by hand by an experienced fiber Artist from the best natural luxury and exotic fibers available in the world.
Angora Rabbit & Merino Wool or Silk & Merino Wool
It is handknit from some yarn that I spun specifically for these little cardigans. I blended together some Angora rabbit fur with Merino wool and a little silk for the blue one and the cream jacket was handspun from a blend of Merino wool and Silk. The juxtaposition of the shiny strong silk with the matte haloed softness of the angora gives the sweater an ethereal quality. The special combination of fibers makes these sweaters soft and cozy, very warm as well as durable and lasting, not to mention very beautiful.
As with everything I knit these 2 little sweaters were lovingly and expertly hand knitted in the traditional fashion with great attention to detail. The lines are Simple, Classic and Timeless.
Any baby will appreciate the luxurious warmth and softness, any mother will love the simple, classic lines and exceptional warmth of this cardigan. This design will look equally stunning on a baby boy or baby girl.This sweet little baby sweater will be even more appealing when you get it into your own hands.
A very special heirloom gift for any baby.
This handknit jacket is available as a knitting pattern.
