Upholding the uncompromising standards for creating Ralph Lauren's iconic sweaters, our Black Label Cable-Knit Cashmere is knit in Italy by master artisans, who, working with the finest fibers, employ an exclusive spinning and finishing process. Our cashmere yarn is sourced from goats raised in the mountains of Mongolia, where the high altitude and cold climate are key factors that help make the fleece ultra-soft. Washed and dyed in a Northern Italian mill founded in the 1900s using pure water from the Swiss Alps, this light and airy yarn offers superior warmth and incredible softness. Designed with an elegant, one-of-a-kind wide cabled pattern, our seven-gauge Shawl-Collar Cardigan features a long silhouette and a loose, modern fit. Because cashmere of this quality only gets better with time, this heritage-inspired pullover item is an investment piece to treasure and enjoy. Ribbed shawl collar. Long sleeves with ribbed cuffs. Ribbed hem. We use only the whitest goat fibers to ensure that the dye appears true to tone. This garment boasts a 3/20-count yarn that is exclusive to Ralph Lauren. For long-lasting preservation and the best care, please store this garment folded. The cable-knit sweater originated in 19th-century Ireland as a way to warm fishermen against the harsh elements. Representing fishing ropes, the twists in the cables enhanced the garment's insulation properties. 100% cashmere. Hand wash or dry clean. Made in Italy. Imported fabric.
