A modern take on a true winter classic: introducing the Fair Trade Certified™ Schaffer Sweater. A reverse fairisle pattern shines at the chest, shoulders, and cuffs giving this sweater a more contemporary style than traditional fairisle knits. To achieve this look sustainably, Aventura primarily used organic cotton to craft this fabric. Not only is organic cotton considered eco-friendly, but it is also hailed for its softness and breathability. This fabric is also special because it knits fine gauge yarn into a jersey so that it sits lighter on the body than the typical fairisle sweater. Rib-knit details along the neck, cuffs, and hemline tone create chic and polished finishes to this beautiful sweater.
