Selling Fast!

We are SO excited about our best selling shape in our knitwear family, the Primrose Cropped Cardigan! If you’re looking for the perfect 100% merino winter cardigan that is a snuggly, dressy, and the most wonderful cropped length, then look no further!  

This 100% mercerised merino wool cardigan is knitted locally by our very special knitter who we have worked with for over 10 years! Knitting locally is something we are passionate about and also allows us to pick and choose our own colours! The mercerisation of the merino cleverly means there will be minimal pilling and that the fibres will last longer and not get fuzzy after a few wears. We have also picked some of our favourite fabrics for the covered buttons, with each cardigan having a perfect match chosen for it. And of course, we get all the buttons made locally in Sydney too! 

FEATURES:

  • 100% mercerised Merino wool
  • Yarn is hand picked and hand dyed, making all colours exclusive to Made590
  • Primrose is a cropped length hits below the waistline.
  • Perfect paired with waisted dresses
  • Ribbed waistband is designed to pull the bottom in slightly and make a lovely silhouette.
  • Textured knit gives this cardigan a lovely warm look without being too bulky.
  • Gorgeous Strawberry Fields Liberty fabric covered buttons
  • Turn under front bind (this is a new style of finish we are so happy with!) which is streamline at the front so the knit pattern goes to the edge and is reinforced at the back with merino knit binding 

WEAR IT WITH:

  • Our Edie long sleeve dress is the perfect base layer under these cardigans, as well as our Edie Botany dress or Alice Garden Path Pinafore.
  • Primrose is a lovely shorter length to work with higher waisted pants and longer skirts like Gillian.

KNIT: Diamond knit which is soft and stretchy to wear. Medium to high stretch.

COLOUR: Classic fire engine red, less purple toned than previous years but still a warm base.

Designed and Made in Sydney, Australia. We use local makers we have worked one on one with for many years. All knitwear is locally knitted by one of the last knitters in Australia! 

 

Buttons are covered with Strawberry Fields Liberty fabric.

100% Mercerised Merino Wool, buttons are metal with 100% cotton covering. Buttons on this cardigan are covered in Liberty of London.

This 100% mercerised merino wool is super special so we want to explain the difference you will feel when purchasing our knits compared to others you may own!

Mercerised merino is SUPER soft and silky, it hardly feels like wool. It is made this way to feel and drape like silk yarn does. It undergoes a chemical process when the wool soaked to remove the tiny itchy fibres called "scales", and when spun into yarn the thread is coated in a silicon like material which smooths and polishes the thread into a luxurious yarn. This makes the knits have a completely soft feel and they are highly resistant to pilling. This yarn is then dyed to our colour specifications and knitted into our beautiful garments by our local (Sydney) knitted Bill.

CARE: We recommend treating your cardigans as carefully as possible, to allow you to wear them for years to come. We wash ours only when really needed, as wool is a very breathable and resilient fibre. In between wears you can refresh your knits by hanging inside out in the sunshine. To wash place your cardigan in a delicates bag, wash only with mild wool wash detergent, on a delicates cycle. Alternatively a soft hand wash using wool detergent will keep your cardigan looking even better for longer. Never wring, rub or bleach your cardigan. 

COLD WATER WASH ONLY.

Reshape when wet and allow to dry laying flat in shade. Do not wash with anything that might rub or create pulls in the wool. If you do snag your cardigan on something, pull the thread gently to the inside of your cardigan and NEVER cut the threads, this will unravel the knit and create a hole. Wash at the end of the season (to avoid moth damage, they like to eat the dirty bits of wool!) and store your cardigan with cedar balls when not being worn, as moths find these 100% wool cardigans very tasty! 

This knit is is quite soft and will immediately feel lovely and snuggly to wear. Go your normal primrose size.
