Grapefruit Cotton Cardigan

160.00

These little cotton cardigans are knit by a coop in Arequipa Peru. Started by two sisters: Karla and Jessica Rodriguez, their small company started with just a few women in a small room, and has expanded to an entire block, employing hundreds of men and women. Their claim to fame is that they will never turn anyone away who is looking for work, and they started an elementary school for all of the kids of their town, so that they don't have to hike over the mountains to get to the closest school any more. I love these women. They also knit our navy boat neck. 

The two sizes did not end up being so different from each other. I'm sorry about that. In my embarrassing photos I am wearing each size - the only way you can really tell the difference is in how long the cardi is - the S/M hits me  at the waist, and the M/L hits me at the hip, and is a little roomier in the shoulders and arms.
