This 1960's soft cream wool and angora mix cardigan, embellished with large iridescent sequins, silver glass beads and pearlescent beads, is just the piece to keep the chill away.
The rounded neckline is framed by a border of beadwork and sequins, joining either side of the front of the cardigan and along the hemline. The simple shoulder line sets off the full length sleeves which are accented with beaded and embellished borders. The timeless cut of the cardigan draws in along the hemline, and fastens with concealed hook and eyes along the centre front. The main body and sleeves of the cardigan are decorate with stylised bead and sequins tassel designs, completing this piece in an iconic 1960's design. This cardigan is lined in nylon along the main body.
