The coziness of a modern hoodie with all the vintage vibes of a classic cardigan.  Equally at home cozying up with a good book or out enjoying a breezy afternoon walk.

Cozy french terry made from 100% certified organic cotton, body and sleeves lined with super-soft organic cotton jersey. We recommend up if you prefer an oversized look.

Designed to play well with others; an excellent core piece for pairing with coordinating tops and bottoms as part of a capsule wardrobe. 

Made honourably. Living-wage jobs transform your AUTHOR clothing purchases into poverty-fighting weapons and write brighter futures for everyone who helps make our clothes.

Writing great stories: This garment is spun and sewn by our fair trade certified partner, Assisi Garments in Avinashi, India. 

Beyond providing honourable living-wage employment, Assisi Garments invests profits back into their local community; supporting a preschool, a school for the blind, a school for the deaf, an orphanage, and a cancer hospital.
