Nzayi Sweater in Organic Merino
New this season, our Nzayi Sweater, shown here in Cochineal Blush, is created from organic merino wool. This detail-rich sweater is trimmed with ribbing on the generous turned up cuffs, waistband and turtleneck. Drop-shoulder sleeves and a hem falling just below the hips give this design a sweet and feminine silhouette. Available in any shade from our natural palette.
This design requires 64 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 sweater.
Named after Mama Nzayi, one of the knitters working for Handspun Hope in Rwanda. You can read more about Mama Nzayi's story or any of the other women here.
