This flagship bubble knit sweater is made from our luxuriously comfortable 90% yak/10% silk yarn and knitted using a versatile 9 gauge bubble stitch on the body and jersey sleeves to ensure that you stay warm (without unnecessary bulk and weight) and look distinctive.
Engraved corozo nut buttons smarten things further, meaning you can easily match it with a smart shirt for a chilly evening out, or a simple crewneck base garment for a winter hike by the sea.
After discovering the air-trapping qualities of traditional bubble knits used by Nordic fishermen, we wanted to use this distinctive stitch to make a sweater that combined form with function. Although the bubble effect is very distinctive, particularly in this thicker gauge, we felt that adding it to the sleeves would make layering with smarter, more fitted jackets unnecessarily difficult, so decided to go with jersey sleeves to give a cleaner and more practical finish. In-keeping with our desire to stay as natural as possible, the buttons are made from corozo nut and engraved with the Khunu name.
By adding a small percentage of silk we were able to improve the handle and strength of the yarn without sacrificing the great properties of yak.
Khunu garments should be dry-cleaned, hand-washed, or machine-washed on the wool or delicate setting. Please wash inside out, in lukewarm water with a mild detergent and no fabric softener or bleach. To dry, reshape you garment and lay it flat on a towel. Do not twist, wring, or tumble dry Khunu knitwear. Fold your Khunu garment to store it so as to lessen creasing and loss of shape.
Measurements refer to body size, not garment dimensions, and are in inches.
All Khunu garments are sized based on a European/athletic standard. If you are generally between sizes for other brands, we'd suggest you order the larger size.
