The Archival Zip Cardigan sweaters are made by our friends at Centralia Knitting Mills. Knitted from soft, durable merino wool on circular knitting machines from the 1930s. We love them fall, winter and spring, worn either under an overcoat or as outerwear in their own right on more mild days. This historical sweater design features a low rib-knit shawl collar, a two-way brass zipper and knitted cuffs. No unsightly external elbow patches needed as we double-knit reinforce the elbow wear points.
