A blue oversized crewneck knit sweater, made with 100% GOTS & mulesing-free merino wool. Knit via the intarsia method by artisans in Tuscany, Italy, with hand-embroidered light blue and red waves elegantly wrapping around the sides.
Features grey circular colour blocking on its sides for a flattering accent to the waist.
The sweater's waves resemble the many curved lines that are found in the Pacific Northwest's environment. These lines are evident in the waved branches of the arbutus tree, the hypnotic silhouette of mountains layered in the distance, or the coastal islands' curvy forms that are visible from higher ground.
Made in Italy.
