Andersen-Andersen is, simply put, one of the finest knitwear companies in the world. Their intention is simple, to make the world's best sailor sweater, and a very compelling argument could be made that they do. Starting at the yarn level, Andersen-Andersen uses a long-fiber merino wool that has been worsted and extra spun, making it soft, durable, and highly resistant to pilling.

Their custom yarn, made from ethically sourced wool in Patagonia and Uruguay, is then transported to Italy, then dyed using environmentally friendly reactive-dyes. Knit together in the Veneto region of Northern Italy, an area known for its incredibly high quality knitwear, the factory that handles production for Andersen-Andersen is almost entirely solar-powered.

The short merino beanie is a snug fitting watch cap, knit up in a cardigan-stitch pattern on 5 gauge flat knitting machines, with 6 threads of Andersen-Andersen's proprietary extra spun proprietary merino yarn.

Machine wash cold, inside out on delicate and lay flat to dry.
