  • Details

    The revival of our best selling Billie from 2014. The concept was solid from the beginning, we just couldn’t get the material right back then. Now, reimagined as a fully fashioned knit, it’s finally perfect. A sweater dress that isn’t body-con, can be comfortably layered over pants, but still has a semblance of shape. Soft and lush, the tactile, organic textured fiber feels sculptural and alive. The wool/alpaca blend is incredibly soft and warm, and light on the skin. It strikes me as something my favorite strange artists from the 1970's would wear on a chilly desert night in Marfa. Dropped shoulder and balloon sleeves give a bit of romance to the silhouette, and also allow for great range of motion. Billie is the ultimate multifunctional piece - wear it by itself at home curled up with a coffee, over your worn in jeans and turtleneck for a crisp fall weekend, or with a pair of pin straight trousers and cashmere scarf for a holiday dinner party.

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

    Textured Wool/Alpaca

    50% Wool/50% Alpaca

    Incredibly lush and soft wool and alpaca blend. The best of both fibers - soft and squishy, durable and insulating, lightweight and moisture wicking. The yarn has a unique, organic texture giving the finished knit fabric a nubby, sculptural appearance. Lofty and lightweight, feels wonderful against the skin but wonderful layered as well. Alpaca and wool are both environmentally responsible, renewable resources that biodegrade quickly.

    Available in two classic, earthy colors - a soft fog grey, and a warm, dark loam.

    Hand wash in cool water with a mild wool detergent. Submerge in cool water, gently squeeze and release fabric to fully wet. Let soak, remove from water, and press with a dry towel. Stretch garment out to original shape, leave flat to dry. Press with steam once dry. Every wool garment ships with a complimentary wool brick - use this to comb out any pilling that occurs over time and keep your garment looking tip-top.
