The modern shield
This is a mock-neck sweater vest with shoulder pads and a ribbed hem. It's knit with Embrace MerinoTM — extra fine 100% merino wool yarn coveted for its natural warmth and super soft feel. We source ours from a premium Italian mill. It’s constructed using a Half Cardigan stitch with distinct vertical ribs for a three-dimensional look and feel.
- Fully fashioned construction means your knitwear fits you better with flat, smooth seams and less bulk. Plus, it reduces material waste in the production process.
- Origin: Yarn from Italy
- Content: 100% merino wool
- Care: Keep a good thing going by giving this knitwear the care it deserves:
- Prolong the life of your knitwear by washing less often.
- When needed, hand wash in cold water using mild detergent specially formulated for knitwear. Steer clear of fabric softeners.
- Rinse well after washing, but avoid ringing. Gently roll the garment in a towel to remove any excess water.
- Store your knitwear folded to prevent stretching.
- If pilling occurs, use a sweater comb or sweater stone to gently remove pills.
