Indigo Chill Botanical Print Long Felted Merino Patchwork Sweater Coat - Hand Dyed
The body of this long vintage wool cardigan is made from a beautiful felted Merino wool with a weight and structure to it that feels like a cross between a lighter coat & a long cardigan sweater.
This piece has undergone a lengthily transformation including a complete redesign combining multiple surface design methods including hand dyed and wrapped Shibori + Eco Printing!
We used wild foraged rose leaves and a few varieties of locally sourced Eucalyptus to make these gorgeous permanent botanical impressions. Just look at the gorgeous fiery burnt orange impressions the Eucalyptus leaves left behind! Amazing!😍

Complete with our signature patchwork sleeves, infused with bits of tie dyed + eco printed wool in complimentary colors made from other reclaimed cashmere & lambs wool sweaters as part of our Zero-Waste process.
The Cardigan has 2 vintage faux horn buttons in a complimentary light grey and looks equally fabulous done up or worn open.
This piece was a true labor of love to create. We literally obsessed over creating this particular piece and the redesign itself from start to finish too about a week of handwork. We inserted patchworking into the sides of this piece in order to give it a totally brand new shape + new life (see the before photo)
Did you know wool is a miracle natural fiber? Yup! It's antibacterial & antifungal, it breathes & regulates your temperature which is why cultures in warmer climates often use this material even in the summer. Think pashminas in India!
Sizing: Pictured here on a size 8 model/mannequin with a bit of a relaxed fit that's not too clingy. This cardigan will easily fit up to U.S size 12 with ease. The length of this cardigan sits at mid thigh at 5"7" tall.
Care: You can steam wool from time to time to clean the fibers or spot wash by hand as well. Easy care machine wash delicate cycle, cold water, separately and then lay flat to dry. Of course there's always dry cleaning.
