Wrapping up has never been more adorable than with the snuggle-worthy “Little Opa” Grandpa Cardigan. We all love a bit of vintage charm, and this gorgeously textured layering piece has it in spades.

Offering a modern twist on the classic ‘grandpa’ style, the shawl collar and boxy silhouette of this cardigan creates a blissful blend of comfort and cosiness that is as ready for adventure as its young wearer! Tiny pockets make the ideal home for dimpled little hands and their recently discovered collection of outdoor treasures - whatever the weather.

Enhanced with a classic thermal stitch, “Little Opa” is destined to be a wear-it-all-the-time favorite, with its roomy body and fitted sleeves. Finished off with a distinctive ribbed collar to match the cuffs, this classic heritage piece comes in 3 different sizes, so every chatty little bub will be snuggled in it’s effortless warmth as they toddle about.
