Feel the difference – your must-have cotton knitwearOctober 2020
Dressing for autumn can be a challenge, can’t it? While the weather is certainly heading in a damp and chilly direction, it’s not quite cold enough for your warmest woollens or that new, statement coat, and while you start off on walks wrapped up in a scarf it’s soon unwound and stashed in your handbag.
Fortunately, there’s a solution. As we transition from warm, to cool, to winter (and often back again, all in one day!) cotton knitwear is an absolute must, and the soft cotton jumpers in our latest collection perfectly fit the bill. They’re soft and cosy, just like wool, but also light and breathable, so that you won’t overheat when the temperature fluctuates. Add to that some rather beautiful seasonal colours, and they truly tick all your autumnal style boxes.Shop cotton knits
Of course, there’s more to our cotton jumpers than meets the eye. As you’ve come to expect from David Nieper, it’s the way we make our cotton knits that really makes them special. Here are a couple of things you might not know about our cotton collection.
Every jumper is exclusive to David Nieper
You won’t find any of our cotton jumpers anywhere else. Why? Because we design, develop, and knit them ourselves, from first sketch to final stitch, just like the rest of our knitwear collection. The ideas come from the design team before heading across the road to our specialist knitwear technicians, who decide how best to bring them to life. You can read more about how our knitwear is made.
The yarns are sustainable, ethical, and incredibly special
We know that you look for quality from your clothing – and our cotton yarns go one better. For our 100% cotton knits, we use exceptional yarns made by Sesia in Northern Italy, just outside of Milan.
We selected Sesia as our cotton yarn supplier for so many reasons, but most of all their commitment to sustainable production and ethical practice. Their materials are completely traceable and grown in a way that respects and protects the environment; they take brilliant care of their people; and they work in harmony with nature to minimise pollution and waste. Sesia even runs exclusively on renewable energy and has introduced exciting innovations to completely eliminate their CO2 emissions. Seeing as David Nieper recently won the Queen’s Award for Sustainable Development, we can’t imagine a better partner for our quality cotton knitwear.
We make cotton knitwear all year round
Cotton jumpers, tops and cardigans are so versatile – and they’re not just for autumn and winter. In the spring and summer, we add drapey cotton cardigans and lightweight short-sleeved tops to our collections. So, if you fall in love with cotton knits this season, you’re certain to find something just as special for 2021.
