Not looking to simply capture some portion of the market or to produce for the sake of producing, Indi + Ash create extremely thoughtful garments, employing a variety of traditional techniques and reinvesting profit into the artisans responsible for their production, as well as the communities they live in. From hand-weaving to hand-knitting to hand-embroidery, traditional dyeing methods, and atelier-style production, they work to create truly unique and beautiful pieces that highlight the skill and history of the craftspeople who make them.

The Andes Cardigan is knit manually, using a machine that requires no electricity to operate. This heavyweight piece of outerwear is made with alpaca-wrapped pima cotton yarns, which feature all the softness and warmth of alpaca, but with the additional durability and drape of cotton - the best of both materials. It's dyed at the yarn level, using all natural dyes that compliment these exceptional fabrics.

The pattern features a large shawl collar and two front bucket pockets for storage. The front and back yoke are knit up with a diamond cable stitch, and genuine horn buttons close up the front. They're cut large, with a relaxed fit and elongated sleeves that are designed to be worn cuffed at the wrists, so the whole thing layers easily over shirts, flannels, and other knitwear.

This edition features both natural undyed alpaca yarns as well as cream pima cotton for structure and durability. Alpaca is the softer, warmer cousin of wool, much in the same way that pima cotton is the sturdier, more comfortable sibling of regular cotton. Over time, these two yarns will relax, and the garment will open up, increasing in size by about 10%.

True to size with a relaxed fit throughout. Dry clean only at a wool/knit specialist.
