'a scoop of leaves' knit distressed top

This comfortable and versatile sweater top features quite a few unusual artsy takes on this kind of garment: it combines different types of knitted fabrics, with lots of texture, hand-painted and distressed, along with a soft silk cotton jersey knit for the scoop cowl neckline. Shorts sleeves are great for under jackets, and the asymmetrical design aids in layering. All natural materials are breathable and easy-care. Earth tones mixed with black make it easy to match to a variety of bottoms and jackets. Product code: B1919

All garments arrive to you freshly cleaned, unlike regular store-bought items, and are ready to wear.

Dry-cleaning is ok on most items but only if gentle methods are used and the cleaners are familiar with cleaning hand-painted delicate fabrics.

To freshen up any item that doesn’t need deep cleaning simply mist it with a water spray and put in the dryer on medium heat for about 15 min.

All garments can be hand washed. Wash each item separately, cold water only, minimal amount of detergent, and as briefly as possible, no soaking. The wash can be followed by a spin in the washer and dried on medium heat until dry. Knits should be hung-dried and when dry, finished in the dryer for a few minutes to soften.

Hand-pressing may be necessary after the wash and dry to straighten out the seams and edges which tend to pucker or curl on natural fabrics.

Some hand-dyed items may leak a bit of color during the washing, that is normal and will not affect the item. Using liquid softener during the wash will minimize any color leaking.

For more tips and details please refer to the cleaning instructions card included with your package.
