  • BEST SELLER: The Ice Skater Cardigans by Emmy Design Sweden are a fabulous, vintage inspired cardigan with a cable knit that is warm and cosy.
  • Our loyal customers who collect them in new colours every season will tell you they are worth every penny because they know what a great wardrobe investment they are.
  • This neat, fitted cardigan gives warmth but does not add bulk and the cropped length gives an uninterrupted silhouette with dresses or high waist 1940s inspired separates.
  • These collectible Emmy cardigans are made from high quality wool which is soft to the touch and not at all itchy.
  • We appreciate screen resolution differs for everyone so to help with colour choices here is how Rowena describes them; Ivory is a warm cream/white magnolia, Black is solid black, Burgundy is a rich, bright, wine colour, Mulberry is a muted tone in the browns rather than reds and blue, sits between warm and cool, Teal is a muted bluey grey teal, Mustard is a neutral like gold, Icy Blue is very pale blue and lives up to the icy name, Pine Green is lighter than previous years but that same pine tone, Navy is a true navy, Aubergine is a vibrant plum, Cocoa is a muted brown cocoa drink colour and Grey is a cool tone, verging on silvery grey.
  • Can be machine washed but only on a dedicated wool cycle where temperatures will not exceed twenty degrees with mild wool detergent. More info in the care label.
  • Find matching sweaters here to create your own twinsets! 
  • Free UK Shipping on orders over £150- Why not pick up some What Katie Did hosiery here in complementary colours or a co-ordinating brooch here to meet our free shipping threshold. International free shipping on orders over $300/€300

Size & Fit

  • Designed to be a close fit not baggy fit.
  • Many folks suit two sizes so it often comes down to personal preference: if you like your knitwear fitted and true cropped go for the smaller size, if you prefer a little room and a little longer length go with the bigger size.
  • For an in depth review and comparison of size please watch this video of Rowena.
  • Please note the label inside will be different to what you order: see table below.

Material & Provenance

100 % extrafine merino wool (mulesing free)


The Ice Skater Cardigan

The yarn originating from Australia is 100 % extrafine merino wool (mulesing free). Emmy Design use the softest yarns and further subject their knitwear to a softening treatment. It is a heavy, warm and soft yarn that makes a durable garment which will last a lifetime if cared for properly. Emmy say’s “buying an Emmy knit in pure wool is money well spent!” and we couldn’t agree more.

Wool's inherent breathability and moisture-wicking properties help regulate body temperature. As it stays fresh for longer you can cut down on washes. Let your Emmy cardigans air out between wears and when they eventually need washing just follow the care label and machine wash it at wool settings or by hand with mild washing detergent.

Emmy Design Sweden

By focusing on timeless style and a quality that lasts for years, Emmy aims to slow down the pace of the fashion industry, reduce needless mass production and thus do what they can to help protect the environment. Their small scale production is split between two factories, they make their clothing in Lithuania and their knitwear in China Fabrics are sourced internationally according to Emmy’s specifications.

This small business is run by two women, sisters in fact. Emmy is the designer; she founded the company in 2010. Lisa came on board to help run the company after finishing her management degree in 2015. The level of thought, effort and professionalism that goes into every detail of their work to ensure best fit, style, quality and service is testament to these wonderful women’s achievements.

Emmy and Revival Retro

Revival Retro has built a wonderful relationship with Emmy and Lisa over the years founded on mutual respect and admiration. As women run small businesses we support and consult with each other on many aspects of business not just each new season’s collection as we constantly aim to improve our internal processes and remain relevant to our customers wants and needs.
