The Susie Q Cardigan is a 40s inspired cardigan, knitted in 50 % cotton and 50 % modal yarn making it hypoallergenic and a vegan friendly option. In classic vintage style, it finishes right at the waist, which makes it the perfect match for full-skirted dresses and high waisted trousers. The sleeves are full length and they also have a slight puff shoulder for a classic 1940"s silhouette. We adore the unique cable knit leaf vines which feature all over this stunning cardigan.
This new blended has many advantages, alongside being vegan. Cotton has the ability to "breathe" and control moisture, its insulating ability protects from the heat in the Summer and cold in the Winter. It is also soft, hypoallergenic and durable. Modal is a manufactured fibre and a type of rayon. It is not considered synthetic as it is made from natural cellulose from beech trees which is then turned into fibre using an environmentally-friendly process. Modal fibres are very soft, drape well, resist creasing and it has a smooth lustrous finish. If all that wasn"t enough, Modal is 50 % more resistant to shrinkage than cotton and tends to pill less. Furthermore, at 50 % more absorbent than cotton, Modal is excellent at wicking moisture away from the body and keeping you feeling fresh and cool. By combining 50 % cotton and 50 % modal, you get the ultimate summer yarn with the softness of cotton and lustre of modal!
A truly beautiful piece that is every penny for its quality and longevity.
