Following on from the launch of their womenswear collection earlier this year, ASKET has released three key knitwear pieces for women; The Cashmere Sweater (pictured), The Mock Neck and The Merino Turtleneck. All three are supremely soft, with versatile and timeless, vintage-inspired silhouettes. Each is made of either recycled or fully traceable wool, and dyed using a mechanical process so they’re kind to both skin and the planet. Available in a curated selection of neutral tones, these garments will see you through the cooler months in warmth and comfort.
