Ginn Sweater Kit
In the words of the designer, the one and only Jared Flood of Brooklyn Tweed:
“The ease of a cool summer evening will settle across your shoulders when you slip into this classic raglan pullover. Dapple’s wool-cotton blend provides just enough warmth to stave off a crisp coastal breeze, while still letting the salt air kiss your skin. Throw Ginn over a beach chair until sunset and then wrap yourself in cozy comfort as the day’s heat sinks beneath the horizon. The effortlessness of this top-down pullover with three sleeve length options cannot be overstated. Ribbed details on the sleeve enrich the stockinette body, adding interest to the knit and depth to the design without distraction. The staple sweater you’ve been hunting for is here. Give yourself space to breathe, to relax, to just be. Happy.”

To order the kit:
Different than most yarns, Dapple colorways change significantly, even within dye lots. Within each batch of 10 skeins, some are light, medium, dark‑‑and some are a mix of all. Similar to hand-dyed yarn, make sure to alternate skeins as you transition from one skein to the next. Mix subtle shades within a single colorway and have fun with fades, ombres and dimensional hues in your fabric. Find delight in Dapple’s dots of undyed cotton and varied color saturation. Each colorway boasts unique iterations of hue: from light to dark…and everything in between. If you have color preferences, you can list them in the ‘Orders Notes’ at checkout–we’ll do our very best to accommodate when possible.
