This sweater is incredible - it is super soft and has such a great shape. It is 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. This is a warm sweater - the 3 ply wool yarn having varying degrees of thickness which creates a beautiful feel and look. This is the chocolate brown version, it is also available in cream.
Fit- This fits true to size and is available in two sizes - s/m and m/l. The shape is comfortable and flattering- with a slight crop in the lengt. The neck fits closely - it is a high crew neck. The s/m underarm to underarm measurement is 22" (flat measurement), the length is 21". The m/l measures 24" underarm to underarm (flat measurement) and the length is 23".
100% merino & corriedale wool, made in Santa Lucia, Uruguay
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.
