Today it is almost impossible to find a large pure wool knit under 300 €, the kind of price that makes you cough.
And I speak of large mesh of more than 1kg, no end pull. Or chunky knit cheating, full of softening or synthetic, ruined after simple washing.
The problem: the wool is expensive, so its presence is always pray: 30% polyester, 60% polyamide or 100% acrylic. Suffice to say that this is not our vision of woolen sweater.
Chunky knit cardigan with six & sept backstage
So we wanted to produce our own cardigan in a high-end quality, but with an affordable price.
Except that was soon realized that it would be very difficult to do better than our previous oversized cardigans with the brand Hoticle It was then said that we should work with a knitting expert in being super strict on the quality standards specified.
We are therefore left with Six & Sept, and we built a new model of permanently cardigan Line BonneGueule. Because these guys know work.
A chunky knit for winter
We wanted to escape the banality of a simple sweater that has too little stylistic opportunities. While offering a product with real added value, both on the field than on style.
It also sought a slightly mottled color, with beautiful reflections, and that goes with everything: where the light beige.
In short, a timeless and reliable product no question of proposing a room modeled on a past trend too fast.
The story of 1 Kg of merino wool…
The recipe to create this large mesh? Add more than one kilogram of merino wool, the compact yarn, knitting in English coast and well authenticated buttons.
Shorn in Australia in accordance with the sheep, the wool is then spun in Italy in Tollegno, until a compact yarn that will not fray.
The color is well-arranged, and will not discolor. And the dyeing process used on the thread provides several colors: the result is a subtle color, nuanced, and bright, but still discreet.
Spun wool is then knitted near Venice, and has expertise in Italian finishes. Knitted English coast gauge 5, the part is bulkier (it traps more air). It requires 50% more material, but the feeling when worn is unique.
Wool with almost magical properties
Merino wool comes from Australia Merino breed of sheep…. This is the cousin of cashmere, except in price.
This variety of wool:
- issofter because thinner and longer than the traditional wool. And it does not scratch! Never!
- still softens with time, because it is processed without artificial softening,
- does not retain odors (and wicking)
- only requires very little maintenance.
Moreover, wool is the rmoregulatory: fiber trap air which acts as an insulator. Unlike cotton, which, once wet, cool you at the slightest gust of wind. Unlike the synthetic that makes you sweat and eventually be cold…
High-end finishes, no amalgam
One of the characteristics of the utmost importance is that it is not a cardigan “stitched the cut and “but a cardigan “remeshed”.
The knitted fabric by the machine already has the form of a piece of cardigan. Then the craftsmen assemble (= remesh) the pieces together.
The pockets are not plated, but directly in the knitted cardigan. It’s a real purist detail you will see only very rarely!
These processes require more attention and a lot more time, but the cut is sharper, armpits do not yawn: it is incomparable.
And we opted for horn buttons. Because it is super nice.
Cutting and sizing: no brainer!
The sleeves and chest are adjusted with just the right amount of material under the armpits. That’s all.
The bottom of the cardigan is less constricted than our previous collaboration, it falls right in more and more fluid. This is a nice little update Six & Sept.
Take one size smaller than your usual size. We are facing a knitted garment is extensible, so there is freedom from one size to another, it’s as simple as that.
Merino requires very little maintenance : a small bath of warm, soapy water at the end of winter. Or before if you do a job at Christmas. Wring the mano, and let it dry flat on a towel (it dries fast). And that’s all.
And cardigan does not wrinkle, nor does it relaxes. But of course, never a stitch suspended on a hanger: you simply fold.
Easily and effectively integrate the cardigan outfit
BG-2.3 cardigan fits perfectly with casual or formal wear.
Wear it with a blazer, you will get a formal dress suitable for winter with a relaxed touch. And the neck of a classic shirt will fit in perfectly with the shawl collar cardigan, for this purpose.
Feel free to match raw materials : chambray, denim, leather, wood with the cardigan for looks with character. Or patterns.
And play on the colors and textures
This light beige are good matches in sober colors like indigo gross jeans, the blue of a shirt, heather gray trousers.
The tone on tone is also possible, but play on the contrasts of materials in between the big mesh textures this time smoother, like poplin or oxford.
