Sustainable, ultra-soft opaque fabric.

Ethically-made in Toronto, Canada.

🍃 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.

Perfect for women of any height from sizes (M-XXL) or those with a broader frame in the hips or chest. The design will also work on women smaller than this size but who just prefer a longer silhouette when styled as the dress looks. The Chrysalis Cardi is also available in size Petite and Medium.

Model's Measurements: Sheen in the Navy Blue, Black, and Plum Purple, is 5'8"/size 14-16. Kristi in the how-to-wear videos is 5'9"/size 6-8 and wearing the regular Chrysalis Cardi.

We recommend that you hand wash the Chrysalis Cardi. Hang to dry or lay flat. You may put the Chrysalis Cardi (with snaps undone) in a mesh garment bag in the washing machine on the gentle cycle. Do not put in the dryer and do not dry clean.

Versatile piece

I love the versatility of this cardi. It's so very soft! Can't wait to wear it all the ways for vacation!

Lovely Transformable Item

I love my new Chrysalis Cardi. I bought it in Royal Blue and the colour is truly outstanding. It took me some time (and patience) to learn the different ways to style the garment, but now, it’s like second nature. The fabric itself is soft and smooth on the skin. I think I’ll be able to wear the Chrysalis Cardi for years to come as long as I remember to use my nails to separate the snaps, and wash it in cold water and hang to dry every time. Thank you, Encircled, for another stunning piece of clothing.

I'm still trying to figure this piece--it is definitely a struggle. Your pictures look nice but so far I'm having trouble figuring out how to get to the different looks. I will keep trying:)

I haven’t figured out how to properly do all the styles. Would love some tutorial videos. I am so happy with the cardi!
