The ultimate in sustainable capsule wardrobe style, the duster cardigan is made from 30% certified Climate Beneficial alpaca yarn and 70% Climate Beneficial wool yarn all raised, scoured, spun and knit in the US and designed in Charleston, SC. Climate beneficial yarn is made from animals grazed to enhance soil health allowing that soil to capture more carbon from the atmosphere than it emits ultimately helping to reverse the carbon imbalance causing our climate and health crisis. This process of grazing and farming enriches the soil allowing it to grow more nutrient dense food, hold more water, improve human health and enhance local economies. Vincent James believes soil is the solution and is beyond excited to share these limited edition, heirloom quality pieces with you. Only 18 pieces were made in 2020 with slightly more available this year. Your support for the soil and our style means the world.
Each duster is made using 100% natural, undyed unprocessed yarn which results in minor variations in color between garments. The 2021 brown color is the lighter of the photos shown (more of a mushroom than the chestnut this year). As this garment is made with natural fibers, some pilling should be expected and is a sign of value over synthetic non pilling fibers.
Hand wash with gentle wool detergent (we recommend The Laundress and washing in a tub). Dry flat.
Returns will be accepted if mailed back within 7 days of receipt of the garment. A $25 restocking fee will be applied.
