          • The fabric is a blend of Lenzing Modal® | Spandex

            Modal 
            is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals. This soft and drapey fabric feels beautiful against your skin.
            Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and recyclable.

    Same design very different material

    I love the design of the cardi and own two already, I wanted the new color because I thought it would be great for fall. Unfortunately, the fabric is MUCH different from my other two cardis and not at all suitable for cooler weather. I just put it away for use in spring and summer, but since it is not really a color for that we will see how much use it gets. Disappointed but I kept it.

    Thank you so much for your review and feedback! Our Customer Love Team has reached out :)

    So soft!

    The material is so soft, and all the variants I've tried are comfy and look great.

    Amazing!

    My first purchase from encircled for my honeymoon was this convertible dress in grey and it was so amazing i even wore it kimono style as a robe in the morning with my lunya silk jumper pj and same attire on travel days. It was so versatile but more importantly kept my body temp comfy. After 2 months of constant wear the snaps did loosen, but was an easy 5min fix. I always hoped to get another color and was excited to see black, royal blue, and navy. Hoping to purchase the black & royal blue when possible. I always wished they came out with a deep red burgandy, red orange coral, emerald green, creamy white, and a light blue, periwinkle, and lavender colors- fingers crossed! Overal all Amazing find!

    Thank you so much for your beautiful review of the Chrysalis Cardi! We are so excited to hear how much you have been loving it!

    I wore the cardi in the Grecian tunic style to my sister’s backyard wedding and it was comfortable and beautiful. The only thing I’d say is that I had to readjust the shoulders often bc it would slip and reveal my bra so I had to check frequently for pictures etc.

    I look forward to using the cape and wrap versions for work and hope to get many years out of this piece. This is my first purchase from Encircled and I am looking forward to trying other pieces from this responsible brand.

    Thank you so much for your wonderful review on the Chrysalis Cardi! We would like to thank you for your kind words and continued support with us!
