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.

Deep side slits give this poncho movement and flow, while the ribbed collar makes it cozy. Cardo and Germantown Bulky have the stitch definition that shows off cable twists even when they're scattered.
