Loop & Weft
Super Lambswool Classic Bird's Eye Sweater in Ivory Brown (LWK1015)
This sweater - made of extra-fine lambswool - pays homage to the classic bird’s-eye crewneck sweaters of the 1980s. The wool is sourced from Geelong, a region in Australia renowned as a world-class producer of high-quality lambswool. The soft and gentle fabric knitted with this wool provides excellent heat retention and moisture absorption without feeling prickly.
The design is reminiscent of traditional vintage nautical bird’s-eye sweaters. To enhance the sweater’s luxurious feel, Loop & Weft created a rib knit collar, dropped back the shoulder seams to give a clean shoulder line, and used rib knit on the cuffs and hem. They avoided the loose, baggy vintage fit, adopting a balanced regular fit that hugs the arms, shoulders, and torso. This gives the sweater a slim silhouette which layers extremely well.
The artisans use a high-end seaming technique called looping, a dying art in Japan, to assemble each garment individually while enhancing its overall quality and texture.
An extremely rare and uniquely crafted piece of art, made in Japan by artisans striving for excellence.
