This sweater is the definition of what Todd calls a “luxe essential,” a go-to that he’s refreshed with an elevated fabric and sophisticated design details. In this particular case, the sweater is made from a handsome Italian merino yarn that’s soft, strong, and just warm enough. The timeless crewneck silhouette is complemented by muted, moody colors and 70s-inspired stripes — think Charlie Brown meets Kurt Cobain.
Tollegno 1900 (founded in its eponymous year) is committed to sustainability and innovation. Among Italy’s leading manufacturers of fabrics and yarns, they place a special focus on fine merino wool, integrating the entire production chain — from raw materials to spinning to weaving — into their business in pursuit of continuing the Biellese wool textile tradition.
