Neiu Ottoman Sweater

The Neiu Ottoman Sweater is a long-sleeved sweater with a round neck and a dropped shoulder. The hem has a slight high-low effect, and features side splits. The sweater has an ottoman knit design, which will relax on the body by about an inch. The knit is a blend of merino wool and cotton, making it breathable and soft.

70% Cotton 30% Merino Wool

This yarn has been crafted from a blend of soft merino wool and breathable cotton fibres.

Cotton fibres help to create a cool, comfortable and breathable finish.

Merino wool is a very fine wool fibre that creates a soft, fluffy finish. It is breathable and temperature regulating, keeping you warm in winter and cool in summer.

The merino wool used in this yarn was sourced from non-mulesed Australian sheep.

We began working with Deutsche Bekleidungswerke (DBW) in 2022. DBW are a socially and environmentally conscious manufacturer located in Vietnam.

This conscious approach is recognised by the company's platinum status under both LEED building standards, and Vietnam's LOTUS accreditation system.

In addition, DBW are regularly audited for their social compliance practices by Better Work, and hold SA8000 Social Accountability certification.
