The cardigans Mister Rogers wore in the Neighborhood were a way for him to pay tribute to love. His mother, avid knitter Nancy Rogers, made the sweaters. “She would give us each a hand-knit sweater every Christmas,” he said.
Sharing our time and talents was one way Mr. Rogers taught us to love.
Today, one of those cozy sweaters, a cable knit number like this one, sits in the Smithsonian. We just had to make it part of our collection and tribute to Mr. Rogers. This replica of the Fred Rogers Double Cable Knit Zip Cardigan Sweater showcases the beautiful cable details flanking the smooth gliding metal zipper and comes complete with the same ribbed collar, cuffs and hem. This cozy zip-up was so beloved by Mister Rogers that he wore it in many different colors. Taking this cue, we are offering two color options for you as well.
Designed in the USA and hand crafted in Peru from soft and durable 100% pure alpaca wool yarn – eco-friendly and environmentally conscience. While the original cardigans were not made of Alpaca we believe that this uber-sustainable textile is the perfect compliment to Mr. Rogers message of "be kind" as alpacas and alpaca wool processing is kind to the planet.
Each sweater has a cozy warmth with superb breathability for a sweater that almost feels like a hug. Easy for everyone to wear, softer, lighter and warmer than sheep's wool, it is naturally hypoallergenic and free from allergens; even safe for those with wool allergies.
This unisex style pairs with jeans to slacks and is the one sweater that will remind you each day "It's such a good feeling to know you're alive"!
