The insulated Kirtipur Sweater, which won a Gold award at ISPO, is a blend of ancient handcrafts and new fabric technology. The 100% lambswool sweater is handcrafted by women from a small village near Kathmandu, helping to provide jobs in Nepal. It's lined with PrimaLoft® Black Insulation Eco, a synthetic insulation that offers warmth, softness, and lightweight comfort and contains 60%-post consumer recycled material.
I was disappointed as I have now purchased four of these sweaters, two as gifts and two for myself. The first one was much thicker and warmer.
I bought this for my son for Christmas. He loves it. His girlfriend called it chic. Very nice sweater. I highly recommend it.
The Kirtipur sweater is beautifully patterned, looks sharp, and makes a great piece for daily winter wear. A classic design that is gorgeously executed, which makes it stand out in a sea of black puffy jackets in my little mountain town. I love the heavy wool and separate hood & collar. The insulated liner is finished with superb detailing and the microfleece face material of the liner feels fantastic. Sleeves are partially lined with a slicker material so it's easier to put on with a flannel or long sleeve shirt without the sleeves bunching.
I should also mention that the Primaloft insulation has incredible range. It's plenty warm for winter here in Colorado, but when I wear it inside at my place of work (which can be pretty chilly) I'm not overheating. So cozy it feels like angel hugs!
Everything I'd hoped for; great fit, wonderful quality, beautiful sweater.
Super fast shipping, amazing quality, and beautifully made. It's an honor to wear something so special.
The unique geometric pattern of this garment is inspired by the rich tapestries of Bhutan. Bhutanese textiles are recognized for their abundance of color and variation of patterns, and are often displayed on traditional garments.
