This item has been so popular that it is currently sold-out. We are getting everything in order to offer another Pre-Sale starting approximately the last week in November. Please come back! That will be the last chance to order this sweater in time for Christmas. You can have this ideal sweater knitted just for you or a lucky woman on your gift list. It would truly be the most wonderful gift! XO
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.
This is our #1 Best Seller.
XS, S, M, L, XL
Note: The fit is designed to not be too tight, so that you have room for coziness and layering.

"Box 3 of 3 arrived yesterday, from which I pulled out yet another sweater, and squealed with glee. (I may have gone a little nutso during this sale.) Bravo to you for a beautiful first collection. Since I’ve sampled just about every corner of your store, I feel authorized to report that each product is absolutely perfect in its unique way. The wools are flattering and sooooo comfortable, the leather is (I love my Circle of Women bag!) and the totes are solid and striking. I am just blown away by the quality and design of each product and can’t wait to see what you offer next at the Shop (read: those boots!). And while I’m gushing, bravo to you for creating a shop that so well aligns with your brand, with the insights and stories you’ve share on your blog and podcasts. Sleep well knowing your customers love you right back. 😍" -Rachael
"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.
"This is the most wonderful sweater! ❤️❤️❤️" -Rachael
"It is my go to sweater. Love!" -Alison
