Description

This stretchy wool children's pullover sweater with a sawtooth-patterned yoke is now available in several sizes. These sweaters are very stretchy, but please measure your child's chest so the sweater will fit!

The birch tweed fishermen's wool yarn makes a neutral but textured background for the colored mosaic in the yoke. Each row of the pattern showcases wool dyed from a different plant in my home workshop. From the bottom they are Purple Loosestrife Flowers, Black Walnut Hulls, Red Sumac Berries, and Black-eyed Susans overdyed with Goldenrod Flowers. There are no seams at all in this sweater to hamper movement, assuring maximum comfort for active little ones as they crawl and run around . The extra wide neck (50% of body width) in baby and toddler sizes allows easy on and off those big baby heads with no pulling on little ears. Deep ribbed cuffs can be rolled up, then unrolled as your baby/child grows. Back neck, as illustrated, is 1 " higher than front so no guessing about putting it on the right way. Sweater has been washed and slightly fluffed, so if you wash gently in cool water there should be no further shrinkage.

Since children of the same age vary so greatly in size, I size my sweaters by chest circumference rather than standardized sizes.

Please order a sweater a few inches larger than your child's chest circumference unless you want a very snug fit.

Beautiful sweater! We initially purchased a sweater that turned out to be a little tight on our son. We asked to swap it for a larger one we saw on Francette's site but instead of just swapping it for one already made, Francette asked for our sons measurement and knitted him a brand new sweater that fitted perfectly (with a little extra room to grow). Communication was great and Francette kept us updated along the way. Was even accommodating of our tight time line as we were heading off on vacation. Thank you so much!! Great experience.

Payments

Secure options
  • Accepts Etsy Gift Cards and Etsy Credits
Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
I will take personal checks if that is your preferred method of payment, and send you your item once it clears my bank. It would probably be easier for you to use PayPal or a credit card, both of which are really easy to use through Etsy.

Returns & exchanges

I will issue a full refund after you return an item if you're really not happy with it once you receive it. I don't issue refunds for shipping unless it turns out that I've misrepresented the product (for instance, the color varies wildly from that in the photo of the item on my website). Please don't use an item for your wedding or another special event and then return it for a refund; that's just not nice.

Shipping policies

I ship shawls and adult sweaters in boxes so they won't get mashed, so shipping is more expensive for those items. Small sweaters fit into large soft mailers so you save on shipping. Thank you for your understanding.

Additional policies

Custom orders take time, so please allow plenty of it if you want something special for a wedding or a birthday. Every single thing I make is made carefully by hand and priced as low as possible already considering the number of hours of work involved. Therefore I do not sell wholesale or give discounts on multiple items.
