    **We are currently sold out of our Lightweight Wool in Fawn. We will update our website as soon as it is available again!**

    A dress version of one of the very first sweaters I designed. Structural and oversized, with simple lines and side slits. This is a statement piece with an everyday ease about it, so you can wear it on repeat all winter long. Cropped wide sleeves flatter the wrist and look great with acuff peeking out from under. Its boxy, relaxed cut is super comfortable and wears well alone or over trousers or a slim-fitting slip dress.

    The minimal cut highlights the beauty and texture of the fabric—a true wear-with-anything piece. Layer over thin sweaters and pants for more warmth, or pair with ankle boots or heels for milder weather.

  • Material & Care

    Fabric: Lightweight Wool

    Fiber Content: 60% Climate Beneficial Wool, 40% Alpaca, domestically sourced

    Description: A cozy, lightweight, plainweave wool. This deceptively soft wool has the luxury and handfeel of cashmere or brushed cotton and the warmth of heavy sheepswool, without the weight or itch. Our wool-alpaca blend is as breathable as it is insulating. Because of its moisture wicking properties, it’s sure to keep you comfortable on a brisk winter day. The fine yarn gauge and tight weave make this Lightweight Wool perfect for many seasons and climates. Our wool is washed in house to give it a brushed, organic finish. Heathered yarn blends natural and colored fiber together for a variegated, earthy appearance.

    Care: Hand wash with cold water and wool detergent. Lay flat to dry. For a sharp suiting look, press on high heat with steam and a wool clapper.

    *Due to wool's short staple fibers, some pilling is to be expected in areas of high friction. Use a wool brick or sweater shaver to remove pills.

Beautiful dress

I received this dress (in charcoal) about a month ago and since, I've been wearing it almost everyday... in the house.

The fabric is gorgeous, both to the eye and to the skin. I have very sensitive skin and it was very mildly itchy the first 1-2 wears but it completely went away and I've been wearing it directly on my skin since. It is warm but not suffocating, like a big cocoon on the whole body.

My only reserve is that it is huge (bigger than the size chart), it is long and the wool doesn't have the same drape as the linen or silk. It looks more bulky (even though it's the lightweight, it's quite substantial) and I'm still looking for a way to style it and not feel like I'm wearing a bathrobe to work (a very elegant one but still...)

Everyday elegance

Beautifully tweedy, thick, soft and cozy wool. I sized down from the size chart and am very happy...bought the grey and wear it with ES's fawn belt. I can wear it around the house or to the opera. Amazing.
