Fred Rogers remains an icon of kindness for the ages with an ongoing legacy of love. It is with this in mind that we have lovingly re-created this iconic Mister Rogers Zip-Front Cardigan with all the details his mom lovingly knit into it decades ago - the same ribbed collar, cuffs, hem and finished with the chain detailing flanking the metal zipper. People associate Mr. Rogers with his cozy red cardigan sweater more so than any other color sweater he wore, thus we have called this the Iconic and offer it in the same cheery red color.
This Mr. Rogers sweater replica is designed in the USA and hand crafted in Peru from warm, soft and durable 100% pure alpaca wool yarn. Alpaca brings unequalled thermal properties to this beyond-classic cardigan; cozy warmth with superb breathability for a sweater that almost feels like a hug. Easy for everyone to wear, it is naturally hypoallergenic and free from allergens; even those with wool sensitivity can enjoy this sweater.
This unisex knit style looks as great on a woman as it does a man and can easily and equally be worn for business or casually.
This is a great-looking, easy-wearing layer you'll reach for every day of the week, and be amazed at the comfort this iconic knit brings to your lifestyle. Why not make every day a "beautiful day in the neighborhood?"

"As human beings, our job in life is to help people realize how rare and valuable each one of us really is, that each of us has something that no one else has—or ever will have—something inside that is unique to all time. It's our job to encourage each other to discover that uniqueness and to provide ways of developing its expression." - Fred Rogers
