Introducing our latest collaboration with New York Fashion Designer Sophie Theallet. The CAP FERRET navy sweater is an updated version of the solid Marine sweater but with a feminine “point de riz” Puff Sleeves, a subtle red trimming, and embroidered Room 502 logo at the hip. With much softer wool than the historic sailor sweater but still in keeping with the tradition of a tight knit (a secret knit that brings warmth and impermeability to clothing along with a resistance to wind and cold).
Pure Merino Wool is a naturally more delicate fiber for maximum comfort and next-to-skin softness.
All pieces are made in our atelier in Saint-James, Normandy, France.
100% merino wool.
Hand wash or use wool cycle. Dry flat.

Great fabric and length. Sleeves too puffy
Comfortable but sleeves by shoulders look too puffy for my taste.
I saw this merino sweater on the Saint James site some months ago. Then recently saw it again at half price and bought it. It is just as beautiful in person.I look forward to wearing it this winter.
Great - I love the classic with a sassy update!
