Gepard Kongming – balloon-sleeved sweater
Kongming is the name of the Chinese sky lanterns that were among the first designs using hot air to make a man-made object fly, making the Kongming-lantern the ancestor of ballooning.
That is the story behind the name of this balloon-sleeved sweater. It is knitted in Puf, a soft blend of cotton and alpaca, and thus a more summery version of Montgolfier, the first of our sweaters with balloon sleeves.
