Rib Alpaca

  • Details

    This is the sweater to end all sweaters. Working on this design was so fun, I wanted to pull together all of the elements that make a sweater a true piece of comfort - both physically and emotionally. Warmth, mobility, easy of layering, a sense of weight, and of course a just-right turtleneck. Raglan sleeves allow for great range of motion, and add to the cocoon-y, relaxed silhouette. The sleeve seam morphs effortlessly into the funnel neck in the ultimate move of design simplicity. The neckline hits just at the chin, a height that’s flattering and excellent for sinking into. Two-by-two ribbing gives the piece stretch, but also a feeling of dense structure and support. This is a legitimate winter sweater - it’s heavy weight providing not only serious insulation, but a reassuring pressure on the body (like a good, firm hug). I feel strongly about the power of dressing, and sweaters are my personal favorite tool for channeling strength and sanctuary - this piece is truly designed for both the body and soul.

    Our knit collection is produced in collaboration with our friends Kordal Knitwear from NYC - read more about the project here.

    Rib Alpaca

    100% Alpaca

    Super warm rib knit alpaca. This fabric is weighty and dense, highly insulating with good stretch but a sturdy feel. Alpaca is an incredible natural fiber - its hollow core makes it great at retaining heat, it’s highly abrasion resistant, and excellent at wicking away moisture. The scales on each fiber shaft are less than half the size of the scales on the fiber from sheep’s wool - making it incredibly soft with minimal itch. Alpaca fiber is an environmentally responsible, renewable resource that biodegrades quickly.

    Available in three classic, timeless colors - a warm, light oyster grey, and soft taupe, and deep, rich black.

    Because of the structured rib-knit in this sweater, please dry-clean only and spot clean when needed. This garment should only need to be cleaned once a season, and can be steamed to freshen. Spot clean with a damp cloth or baby wipe to remove dirt or marks.
