2022 Collaboration Collection: Kelbourne Woolens x Manos del Uruguay

Remember what it felt like to want to build a treehouse with the kid down the street? Well, if you've been friends for nearly 20 years and are too busy running your own businesses to get together for a meal, that joint project turns out to be a collaborative design collection. Conveniently, each company just introduced a new bulky-weight wool -- and both could be knit at the same gauge. Among us, we designed 6 garments, and knit each in both yarns. The result is a wardrobe of sweaters and a renewed commitment to the principle of collaboration.

Because of its refined details (like a split hem and short-rowed shoulders), Bascom works as both a vest or a first layer.

Germantown Bulky and Cardo have the body to give the simple, two-stitch repeat of the garment pattern distinctive depth.
