Beatrice is long, cozy cardigan with smock pattern at hem, sleeves and pockets.
Beatrice is made in Önling No 1, our own soft and sustainable merino wool and angora yarn, combined with a light Silk Mohair. The silk mohair is either from Mohair by Canard or Önling, depending on the colour.
Originally Beatrice is knitted in a combination of Isager Alpaca 1, Alpaca 2 and Silk Mohair. This gives a warm and soft cardigan, knitted at a large needle size. See this version and other related products below
