Norse Projects Adam Lambswool: Truffle

Norse Projects Adam Lambswool: Truffle

Size
The Norse Projects Adam Lambswool cardigan is knitted from Italian lambswool yarn with a soft handfeel. It is finished with a single rib at hem and cuffs as well as a five-button placket.

Model is 187cm and wears size M.
  • Colour: Truffle
  • 100% Lambswool
  • Regular Fit
  • Horn buttons
  • Italian Yarn
  • Made in Italy

The cardigan was named after James Brudenell, 7th Earl of Cardigan, a British Army Major General who led the Charge of the Light Brigade at the Battle of Balaclava during the Crimean War. It is modelled after the knitted wool waistcoat that British officers supposedly wore during the war. The legend of the event and the fame that Lord Cardigan achieved after the war led to the rise of the garment’s popularity. The term originally referred only to a knitted sleeveless vest, but expanded to other types of garments over time. Where before, they needed to be hand-knit on commission or by a loved one, industrialization allowed for large-scale manufacturing of these garments which effectively democratized their wear. Post-WWII, the cardigan was closely associated with the academic set, much like Rex Harrison’s character in My Fair Lady, and the college culture of the 1950s.
