Hostess style: Bespoke knits
Three cheers for a finally modern bespoke hand-knittery in the United States.
Having sourced sweaters in all manner of overseas factory and received every sort of super friendly letter about the countries of origin being everywhere but the US (and chuckled to myself knowing said consumer would never fork over three times as much if I made them in the US - I know, because I was foolish once and tried, anyway...), I am really pleased to see this product line with a modern, perfect-for-fall chunkiness and not feeling like Granny's polyester yarn handiwork.
Choose your color and wait two weeks. And the prices are, for this level of work, truly reasonable. I only wish there were a couple of men's options in the assortment.
