Virginie Sweater in Organic Merino
The Virginie Sweater boasts an intricate, cabled yoke that punctuates an already lovely design created from our organic merino wool. Emulate the runway styling by pairing with a pencil skirt or leggings and boots. Shown in Eucalyptus Bark but available in any shade from our natural palette. Hand spun, naturally hand dyed and knit in Rwanda by the women of Handspun Hope.
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.
