Nelly Cardigan

£489.00

This exquisitely detailed cardigan is a work of art, showcasing the skills of female artisans in Uruguay. The extra-fine merino wool and linen blend is spun, dyed and woven by hand, then  hand-embroidered with colourful autumnal flowers. Traditional kettle dyeing is used to create rich, graduated colours, bringing the embroidery beautifully to life. Each cardigan is finished with blanket stitch borders and a long fringed hem.
