Aimeé Olive Sweater in Ethiopian Cotton
The intricate detail and lovely draped split sleeve of the Aimeé Olive Sweater make this a great look for a day shopping with friends or a dinner out. The soft neckline and wide side tie at the hips give this design an irresistibly feminine style. Shown in Indigo but available in any shade from our natural palette.
This design requires 56 hours for one woman to knit by hand. This time is not inclusive of the laborious task of creating the yarn and hand dyeing it organically. Please allow 8 weeks for the delivery of this custom-created design.

Our Ethiopian cotton is sourced from a women's cooperative in Addis Ababa. There, the ladies hand spin cotton on drop spindles. The cotton is then imported into Rwanda where the women working for Handspun Hope ply and dye the yarn.
