With her Cardigan Dustin, Isabell Kraemer hints at traditional Bavarian jackets. It's knit seamlessly top down in raglan style with cables worked into the edges, sides, and sleeves. We love this piece because it can be combined so casually in a modern way, and because it goes so well with our Merino d'Arles wool from Southern France. For centuries shepherds have been guiding these sheep to the Alps during the summer in the old tradition of transhumance. Spun into a light, soft yarn, their wool makes the jacket so comfortable to wear.
