Rivers & Reeds Eco Print Long Cashmere Cardigan - Hand Dyed
The body of this long vintage wool cardigan is a fine knit cashmere and has undergone a lengthily transformation combining multiple surface design methods including hand dyed and wrapped Shibori + Eco Printing!
We used wild foraged rose leaves and a few varieties of locally sourced Eucalyptus to make these gorgeous permanent botanical impressions. Just look at the gorgeous fiery burnt orange impressions the Eucalyptus leaves left behind! Amazing!😍

Did you know wool is a miracle natural fiber? Yup! It's antibacterial & antifungal, it breathes & regulates your temperature which is why cultures in warner climates often use this material even in the summer. Think pashminas in India!
Sizing: Pictured here on a size 8 model/mannequin with a relaxed fit that's not too clingy. This cardigan will easily fit up to U.S size 8/14 with ease. The length of this cardigan is to the thing at 5"7" tall.
Care: You can steam wool from time to time to clean the fibers or spot wash by hand as well. Easy care machine wash delicate cycle, cold water, separately and then lay flat to dry. Of course there's always dry cleaning.
