Ah wool. For me, it’s in the firmament of what I think of as marquee materials…wool, cashmere, leather, stainless steel, (chocolate?) Materials that are classic. That stand the test of time. And that are worth the investment.
But they can be deceptive. At least they were for me when I first started Oiselle - and was just a wee designer in training. I still saw the body as a series of logical lines and measurements…hips, inseam, rise, waist. Check, check, check. And that somehow the sum of the angles and numbers would produce the ideal garment. And thus many of my early creations had more 90 degree angles than I care to admit.
