Loop & Weft Heather Slub Pile Back Hem Ribbed Cardigan Army Olive



This fine-knit cardigan from Japanese masters Loop & Weft is lightweight and breezy, rendering it the perfect layer for transitional weather. Finished with a ribbed back hem and a line of black cat's eye buttons, it channels the highly-coveted 'dark academic' aesthetic that you've no doubt seen all over your socials.

The overall silhouette is a classic tailored to a regular fit with a shape based on the 50s chest pocket sports cardigans.

But the fabric is no doubt the main attraction of this piece. We're especially big fans of Loop & Weft's next-level knitting, which reveals a little more texture with every wash. This heather slub fabric is knitted using a unique spinning technique that creates an uneven slub texture and a soft, comfortable feel against the skin.

It features a three-ply pile lining that reproduces the uneven loop arrangement found in wool and other fabrics, giving it a refined vintage texture. The back hem is painstakingly made through a piped process.

Sewing is mainly done with black thread and narrow 2-needle sewing. The stitchwork is a crucial point of the sewing process, which enhances the feel of the material. The shoulder line is not visible from the front, giving the shoulder a three-dimensional appearance.

For the absolute best of the best, look no further than Japan's Loop & Weft, who have been crafting top-tier tees and knitwear with an artisan's eye for more than a decade. Using rare vintage machines, their pieces undergo a tediously slow knitting process that results in incredibly dense and suspiciously soft fabrics with unique uneven textures derived from the combination of natural and recycled fibres. In their efforts towards eco-conscious production, they use natural dyes with low environmental impact, resulting in coveted, one–of–a–kind pieces with a trademark organic unevenness in colour.
