OUR COLLECTION

ELEVATED BASICS

Each of our hand-knit pieces is made by talented New York City grandmothers, using the most luxurious yarn. WOOLN has collaborated with the best local knitters to produce your special beanies and snoods. Every WOOLN knit is made with care and each piece has its own unique quality.  

We have designed our pieces to be worn in a multitude of ways, by both men and women (most of them!). Texture and pure softness along with great attention to detail make WOOLN knits extraordinary.  We have sourced four amazing yarn blends for this season's collection. WOOLN products are offered in pure 100% Baby Alpaca, an Alpaca/Merino blend, Cashmere, Mohair and our latest find :Suri Alpaca.

THE KNITTING CREW

Senior women are at the heart of Wooln. They are the reason why we exist, and the ones who make each collection happen. This year, we have collaborated with a dozen senior knitters, all retirees, all women, all living in New York. 

Beyond creating luxurious hand-made fashion, we aim at creating a strong community with our knitters, welcoming them back into the active workforce, valuing their amazing talent, and making them proud to be part of this extraordinary knitting project. 

Their personal stories behind each knit make every piece of clothing we sell unique.

Our collection is made of the finest NATURAL FIBERS we could find.

We source most of our yarns in Peru from a company that thrives to produce the finest yarn, in the finest way; we chose them

  •  for the quality of their yarns, 
  • for their constant engagement in social responsibility as they dedicate a lot of energy, actions and funding to support rural families who make a living from Alpaca farming,
  • for their long-term vision of responsible and qualitative farming as they invest in innovative processes that provide higher quality fibers and aim at more gentle shearing practices.
