85 SGD
The story:
We call this baby A Hundred. Because we imagine it took 100 wooly hours and 100 bags of wool from 100 wooly sheep to make this 100% wool cardigan in the most gorgeous knit. We wished we could knit like this! 

And we are absolutely loving the old school tag on this "British Crown Colony of Hong Kong".  It truly tells us the vint-age of this beautiful knit. 

Pinned?: No.
