The DICTE is the perfect boxy cardigan that is sure to become a go-to layering piece in your closet. Features a chunky fisherman ribbed texture, two front patch pockets, and contrasting horn buttons down the front. The exaggerated side slits on the hems and sleeves ensure a drapey fit.
Made from the downy coat of the nomadic Sartuul sheep, DICTE is a durable knit. It will readily soften after a few days of use, so after buying we recommend giving it a few wears and a wash to help this process. Just like a good pair of shoes, after this brief break-in period you will never want to be without it.
We source our Sartuul wool from the Green Gold project, a program which helps improve the health of Mongolia’s grasslands and the incomes of its nomadic herders.
True to size with a boxy fit. We recommend you choose you regular size.

100% Sartuul wool, a rare breed of nomadic sheep from the Mongolian steppe. The wool is sourced from the “Green Gold” project, a Swiss development program which organises cooperatives of nomadic herders in the Mongolian steppe. The project helps herders preserve their traditional way of life through artisanal fiber production of heritage Mongolian breeds – like Sartuul and yak.
Washing is not always necessary and it is hard on your garment and on the environment. Llama wool is a self cleaning fiber that requires less washing than other materials. To save resources, simply air your garment for a fresh start.
However, if you do wish to wash your garment, we recommend hand wash, 30 degrees, using high quality wool soap such as Eucalan or Sonett. Let the garment soak in water for 10-15 min. Rinse in 30 degree water. Avoid twisting, pressing or squeezing the water out and let the garment dry flat. Steam on medium temperature for a nice finish.
If you have a very gentle washing machine it is possible to wash your Aiayu garment in the machine on a wool program 30 degrees, low cycle. However washing in the machine is at ones own risk, as we cannot guarantee the individual program settings on washing machines.
