My first Saint James purchase was a small knitted sheep during a fabulous stay in the Somme Bay. Since then I learnt a lot about the company and it’s collection. I bought the “Arona” cardigan with it’s lovely elbow pads. It’s the perfect cardigan for all seasons and weather. I wore it to visit Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque located in Abu Dhabi in 40 degrees heat! And I wore it during the winter too. You definitely need a Saint James cardigan in your wardrobe.
