The Archival Zip Cardigan sweaters are made by our friends at Centralia Knitting Mills. Knitted from 4-ply worsted wool on circular knitting machines from the 1930s, the fabric is remarkably sturdy, warm and pill resistant. 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. Pocket bags are trimmed with multi-weave wool.
Centralia Knitting Mills has been knitting top-quality sweaters in Centralia, Washington since 1939. The wool used in these sweaters is sourced from New England and the zippers are made in Canada.

The fit is trim and athletic - on the slim side of regular. They layer nicely over a button-down shirt or a sweatshirt.

Sleeve measurements are taken from shoulder seam to cuff with a 3" rolled cuff - you can adjust sleeve length by adjusting the length of the cuff's turn.

Dry cleaning is ideal. You can also gently hand-wash in lukewarm water, with a very mild detergent, then lay flat on a towel to dry.
