maritime sweater vest
The scrappy, woolly, granny square sweater vest of your dreams. This gender free crochet vest features a ribbed neckline, armholes, and waistband. The main body is made from 100% merino wool, and the granny squares throughout are a mix of wool, angora, and acrylic yarn. The best part? This piece is made entirely from scraps of previous maritime moose projects.
Pam is a size small/medium up top and the vest fits loosely over a couple layers of clothing. The unstretched measurements when the vest if laid flat are as follows: width at the centre of armholes is 18.5 inches, width just the under armholes measures 19.5 inches, and the length from shoulder to bottom measures 24.5 inches. There is about 7 inches of stretch in both directions.
This product is made using 100% upcycled yarn. We source our materials from local thrift stores, where we carefully select gently used knitwear with holes, stains, or rips. The sweaters are each washed, unraveled by hand, and respun into spools of yarn to be used in future products.
By purchasing items made using repurposed materials, you are participating in a circular economy! Making use of existing materials and products for as long as possible before producing new ones is truly one of our favourite sustainability practices.
