Rufflecuff cashmere sweater – Colour Slate w Cinder Smog chiffon
100% Cashmere, Organic and Plant dyed
A key style of the Coral Strand collection, the Rufflecuff is named for the box pleated silk chiffon cuff lending feminine, theatrical movement to this otherwise easy, neat round neck. The silk chiffon lends a tonality further enhanced by a ribbon of Japanese grosgrain travelling up the sleeve to the collar. This lightweight detail forms a tonal, textural impression up the sleeve like that of formal menswear trouser stripe. Side splits give the hem ability to elegantly fan out over a flared skirt or trouser. A versatile silhouette lending some grace to the everyday.
Presented here this season in this really special Plant Dyed cashmere. The yarn is from one of Italy's top cashmere mills; Cariaggi. Having their own herd they were able to harvest the best 100% organic pure white cashmere and then dye it naturally with plants. This shade; 'Slate', a purplish grey, is dyed with Logwood - an evergreen tree native to Central America, long important in the textile industry for the breath of colours it imparts naturally.
