Lingua Franca's take on the traditional Fair Isle knit is a chunky, 7-gauge raglan sleeve sweater made from 100% sustainably sourced cashmere - it's heavy and oh so soft! It features three-dimensional looped "fair isle" jacquard letters (something that took us a year to get right!), that spell out fun phrases inspired by the Lingua Franca of our grandparents: heavens to betsy, jumpin’ jehoshaphat!, oh for Pete's sake, for crying out loud!, and what in tarnation?!
“This collection started as a sort of love letter to my grandparents, the humans who I always knew loved me unconditionally, and whom I physically lost this past year. It is a playful celebration of the ‘lingua franca’ of their generation, and of the memories and meaning that our grandparents imprint on all of us.” - Rachelle
