This cardigan caught my eye because of how pretty heathered mystique is. I'm a sucker for lilacs and shades of purple in general. This piece is made of cashlu. It feels heavy and soft to touch. It's definitely a fall piece. I was surprised at how dense the weave is. For this piece I went with a size 2. I would say the fit is true to size but the sleeves are super l
