Customers asked 'Aethel, why haven't you knitted a crew neck?'
We wondered how ours would be any different?
Our answer: by fusing our trademark details with a simple, classic style, knitted in high quality cashmere.
The Uncomplicated Crew is an unassuming staple that you may not fully appreciate until you own one.
It is knitted tightly in 2 ply on a 7 gauge machine from Loro Piana's 2/27 cashmere. We have added a strand of lycra to the yarn so that the sweater is hard wearing and preserves its shape.
The sandwich trim neck, cables running along the side seams and long cuffs are our understated details.
The Uncomplicated Crew feels good to wear on its own or under a jacket or coat.
It will become a reassuring friend that you will turn to often without having to think about it too much.
The style is more fitted than many of aethel's designs. Size up if you prefer a more relaxed sweater.
