Here we have the original chunky wool sweater that started it all. We wanted everyone to have a chance to own this magnificent piece, so we had to open this dang shop. This warming sweater is self-care for your soul. Wear it as a reminder that caring for others includes caring for yourself, because this sweater is an investment in women everywhere, both the maker and the wearer. Here's what you need to know about this product: it's ridiculously well made and structured. Soft, not itchy. Stand up collar and POCKETS. It's what fall and winter dreams are made of. It remains my favorite sweater I've ever owned.
100% Wool. Wooden Buttons.
STOCK IS VERY LOW in all sizes! This is our #1 Best Seller.

Notes from other women:
"Mara and Danny of A Blog About Love just opened a shop! They have incredible taste. Every item is perfection, including this sweater." - Gabrielle Blair, Design Mom
-"The quality is SO good. You are not charging enough for this sweater!" -Sabine
-I just wanted to write and let you know how AMAZING the Self-Care Sweater has been since I've purchased. Mara, I loved the sweater long before it was in the shop, as I'd seen you wearing it in several long ago blog posts. I was thrilled when I saw it for sale and used Christmas money to buy one of my own. I had high hopes, and I was NOT disappointed. It is truly lovely. The craftsmanship couldn't be better, and I don't say that lightly as I'm an experienced knitter myself. I echo a previous review that you are not charging enough! The wool is warm and it is wearing beautifully. I am very petite, and I purchased the small. It does have some roominess in it, but in a wonderful "grandpa cardigan" kind of way. It was worth every penny and I will wear it with pride." -April M.
