Inspired by the hard-wearing Gansey sweaters worn by British fishermen, the Heavy Wool Sweater is our contemporary take on a jumper that will weather any storm. We worked with an Italian mill, that has over a century experience in high-end yarn, to create a chunky knit from 100% recycled wool. Knitted from a 3-ply yarn into thick rib, with a straight fit and raglan shoulder, this sweater beautifully balances simplicity with a cosy ruggedness. Hemingway pipe optional.

Full Transparency

For every garment, we disclose its supply chain traceability, environmental footprint and cost structure. The more we know, the better decisions we make, the more we cherish what we buy and the longer those items will last.

      With a permanent collection and direct-to-you sales, we don't have wholesale markups, deadstock, sales or discounts. The traditional retail price shows what we'd have to charge if we sold our garments through multi-brand stores (wholesale) - 6x the landed cost. Instead, our markup is between 2.5-4.5x landed cost depending on product and country characteristics. It covers the cost of our garments and a lot more: VAT, cost of sales (shipping, warehousing, payment, web systems etc.), marketing, admin (salaries, rent, product development etc.) and financial costs, while maintaining a slim profit to keep investing in our mission.

      100% Overall traceability

      Made From Waste, Without the Waste

      Made from 100% recycled wool, the sweater is knitted from a yarn that is made from pre-consumption wool which is the fiber wastage that comes from the spinning mill. The waste is then sorted by quality and color and spun back into new yarns in a process called mechanical dyeing - requiring zero water and zero chemicals.

      • Wool: 100% Recycled Wool
      • Yarn: 19,5 Micron 3-ply, 1/15
      • Knit: 7 gauge
      • Dye: Mechanically dyed
