Wool Waffle Knit Cardigans



Our Cardies have a bit of a cult following and with good reason. These beauties are made in the UK using the traditional wool that they were originally made from in the ’60s. This piece of iconic knitwear is inspired by my mum and her penchant for later ’60s Ska and Motown. I saw pictures of her wearing this cardigan with tasseled loafers and I knew that I had to remake them.

The cardigans come in the traditional waffle knit that can only be achieved using wool (none of that weird plastic polyester stuff here oh no!) and have the two pockets at the front, just like the originals. The cardigan is then finished with the original ‘crushed minstrel’ leather buttons and a plain knit button placket. Those that have spent ages searching for the originals have come to the right place. Accept no imitations.

The cardies come in a slightly oversized fit as per the originals, if you prefer a snugger fit, consider going a size down. Sadly this will be the last time that we manufacture these, so if you want one, move quick.

Made in the UK.
