This appealing and versatile lightweight zip front cardigan is manufactured in New Zealand from a blend of our finest Merino wool and Possum fur. The blend of 50% Merino wool, 40% Possum fur and 10% nylon creates a yarn that is exceptionally soft, warm and insulating. It features an attractive 'Koru' pattern, a unique native New Zealand Maori pattern symbolic of rebirth, new life and growth. This pattern features on the double layer cuffs, band and collar of this jacket, making it a great souvenir item or symbolic gift for someone special. The straight yet generous body cut of the cardigan flatters all figures and is a looser fit. Generally it is a good idea to select a smaller size than you would normally wear for this style. Proudly made in New Zealand by Lothlorian.

The model pictured wears size S.

Please follow the manufacturer's directions of care attached.

    Motif jacket

    Published by Dianne on 29th Aug 2023

    This is a warm and attractive jacket which I wear often. The shade of blue is lovely and it is cosy. My only improvement would be that the zip can be difficult to pull up. I would also like a stretch knit lining in the body. But overall I was so pleased I ordered it in red as well. This was a bit shorter in the sleeves and body strangely. Both are medium size. My favourite winter purchases.

    This is so warm and a beautiful colour and design at the borders. A lovely jacket with a NZ motif design.

    Best travel sweater ever!

    Published by Polly Farina on 6th Jun 2022

    I am now buying my 5th one this time in Natural. It is my all-time favorite sweater that I have taken on every trip since 2015! It is extremely light weight for packing, warm but breathable - good for summer or winter especially on cool buses or airplanes and a mandatory item for every international trip. I've received many compliments and I just can't imagine traveling without one. The only complaint is that I wear holes in the elbows but probably because I wear it almost every day. Love this sweater!!

    Lothlorien zip cardigan

    Published by Christine Heyer on 1st Jul 2021

    I have bought 5 of these cardigans in different colours over the past 20 years and they are fantastic to wear and very reliably excellent quality. The fit, shape and durability are first class. Possum mink cardigans are light and soft but so beautifully warm. I recommend them wholeheartedly.
