A few weeks ago, when the sweater time was in full swing, I opened my sweater drawer to a little October surprise. While I have accumulated a decent amount of sweaters over the course of my life, I’ve found that the majority of them have been standard, plain, cashmere (or cashmere) crewneck sweaters – each of them. a different neutral color. Since I don’t have a capsule wardrobe (a la Steve Jobs, as my editor recently explained to me) I was a little disappointed with myself and my sweater game. If you are in a similar situation, feeling that your sweaters are a bit boring, a bit too identical, don’t worry. I have since moved on to a few unique pieces, each with details that set them apart, while still maintaining their beautiful basic nature.
Felted merino ribbed crew
It’s not cashmere, but it looks like it. It is made of felted merino wool – the wool has been boiled, so it is softer and a little more dense. There is no itching, I can confirm that, and I love the vertical stripes in the knit. It’s a little different, a little edgy, but not too much. Just the right amount. Right now, it’s available in light navy blue, dark mallard, and charcoal.
It’s just a normal crew neck, you say? Maybe at first glance, but look at those sheepskin elbow pads, baby! The material is yak wool so again it’s not cashmere but look this material is more durable, offers more heat retention and is sourced responsibly. The collar and cuffs are ribbed with a double layer, and there is a speckled design that runs through the entire knit.
This sweater is shockingly simple – you’ll run into the other room and exclaim how soft it is. The collar is ribbed, there are detailed seams on the body and on the shoulders, and the fit is relaxed. I would wear this sweater every day if I could.
I wanna be able to wear a sweater like Chris Evans’ Knives Out, but look, we can’t all be Chris Evans. This sweater is the toned down version, perfect for you and me. It is made from 100% Shetland wool, is non-itchy and has a unique cable knit front. It can be dressed up or down and will keep you warm and cozy wherever you go.
