SPALDING


by Zanete Hussain

“My desire was to create a comfortable and practical unisex sweater, just as cosy to wear chopping wood as at a Christmas party. What sets this pullover apart is a focus on subtle construction details and interesting finishing techniques.” 

– Zanete Hussain

Product description

Practical luxury. The Spalding pullover’s everyday appeal is elevated by plush half-brioche ribbing and a double-knit shawl collar, set off by trim stockinette shoulders and clean, fold-over hems. With seamless, top-down raglan construction and a relaxed, unisex fit, Spalding knits up light and lofty in Shelter’s handsome woolen-spun heathers, sumptuously soft in Imbue’s rich worsted-spun tweeds.
