Mini Stripe Black/Charcoal Bamboo Cotton Jersey - The fabric, a lush bamboo-cotton blend, looks like black from afar, but is actually striped with black and charcoal, each band 2mm wide (that's slightly wider than a 16th of an inch for us non-metric peeps). This mini stripe adds a lovely hint of pattern while still allowing you to pair it with tops and dresses without clashing. A great fabric if you're looking for something a step above basic black.
Heather Almond Bamboo Cotton Stretch Fleece - Fleece is often relegated to the sweatshirt, lounge wear category, but there's no reason why you can't sew a stylish and elegant cardigan out of this super cozy fabric. The cousin of our favorite french terry, this fleece is brushed and fluffy on the inside, smooth and soft on the outside. With that combination, you can make an amazing, neutral cardigan to pair with jeans or dress pants, all while enjoying the feel of your favorite sweatshirt. The best of both worlds if you ask us!
Oxblood Tencel Cotton Modal Sweater Knit - Ever since fashion week a decade ago, oxblood red has been one of our favorite colors of fall. This red isn't bright and bold, but it also isn't earthy and brick-like. A lovely coolness to the red makes it rich and muted, and we think it will look absolutely stunning as the Aveiro Cardigan. The blend of tencel, cotton, and modal gives it breathability, softness and strength, and the looser weave of the sweater knit makes it feel cozy and warm. We love everything about it!
