These sweaters are incredible - they are super soft and they have such a great shape. They are hand knit - the designer of Ound - Paula - works with a group of women artisans in the rural areas of Uruguay to make them using wool from native breeds of super-fine Merino and Corriedale sheep. The wool is undyed and it is processed with no chemical treatment to preserve its natural properties and performance. The weight is substantial, but not heavy - they are a perfect warm cozy layer. This is the cream version, it is also available in three other colors.
Fit- These fit true to size and are available in two sizes - s/m and m/l. The shape is comfortable and flattering- with a slight crop in the length and tapering in a bit at the waist. The neck fits closely - it is a high crew neck. The s/m underarm to underarm measurement is 21.5" (flat measurement), the waist is 36". The m/l measures 24" underarm to underarm (flat measurement) and the waist is 38".
Ound is a small collection designed by Paula Delgado. Paula's collection was founded on a strong commitment to sustainability, with a "seasonless practice that evolves through passion and investigation". Paula uses all undyed wool and for her silk pieces, everything is naturally dyed. The collection is rooted in the notion of a humble luxury and integrity of making that runs in accordance with our inner natures and respect to the natural world. We love all that is put into these pieces and the finished results are nothing short of absolute beauty coming from a thoughtful process.
