A unisex winter classic, these handmade woolies are made by hand by our master artisans in the highlands of Oaxaca from virgin merino wool that they clean, card and spin by hand on a traditional drop spindle. Every piece is individually knit, and topped with a handmade pompom with ties on the underside so that it can be removed for two looks in one. Custom-made to our specifications exclusively for our stock, these pieces are available in undyed cream merino wool.
The talented makers of these pieces have been working with wool for generations. Their home workshop in Southern Mexico offers the family space to collaborate on wool pieces that are made on backstrap and standing loom, as well as knitting, crochet and woodwork. While their pieces are sublime, it is also time consuming, and requires an extraordinary amount of skill and patience.
Approximately 22cm wide at the brim x 28cm long, with a removable pompom on a hand spun wool string
