Keeping Jumper in Plant-Dyed 'Moonlight Mushroom' Hand-Knit Organic Cotton
Intentionally oversized and too good to be true, this epic piece of wearable art is made entirely by hand in the most literal sense – from the organically grown cotton to the seeds of the dye plants used to give the yarns their color, to the hand embroidered mushroom details. Picturing a sweet and soft psychedelic landscape in an autumnal color palette all naturally dyed with madder root, indigo, iron, and acacia bark.
Features dropped shoulders and slightly extended sleeves for an extra cozy fit.
