WAZZIE WOOL JACQUARD MOCK NECK
For the mock neck lovers: a sleeveless sweater with loads of style. Because sometimes you want that dress up, feel good, but stay-sporty vibe. Our 100% Merino Wazzie Wool Jacquard is a favorite and remains unchanged. This new style, however, is fresh to the line, as are the new colors and flying birds design. The warmth of wool, with the convenience of washability. A subtle mock neck makes it infinitely wearable, from casual to goin' out.
- 100% merino wool
- responsibly sourced
- 21" body length (size small)
I love a mock neck and love wazzie wool, so I could not resist trying this. I also could not decide between the black with white birds, or the white with black birds. I ordered both in my usual size small. I am generally cold and I pronounce this a perfect top for wearing under a jean jacket in low seventies temps (my house temp in the winter). I will keep both tops, but because I am picky I have a few tweaks I would suggest for improvements. I am about 5' 5" 126 lbs and would have liked an extra inch or two in length for it to either hit at my hipbones or stay tucked in. I also wish the bird print was lined up better where the seams are (there are partial birds by both of the front shoulder seams). Lastly, the white background actually looks gray instead of white. I do really like the tops and believe I will wear these often. I hope there will be a long sleeve option next winter that is more of an ivory background with black birds and does not chop up the poor birds images at the seams. Also hoping to see some summer-weight wazzie wool options again this year. Please make my day Oiselle and offer a thin summer wazzie wool cap sleeve t-shirt and racerback tank in black and dark heather gray options.
I bought this thinking it would fit like the tortoise tank but was disappointed. The arm holes fit weird and pucker out. Unfortunately wouldn’t recommend.
Something about this top has drawn a lot of "Oh what's that top? I like!" I personally like it because Oiselle's wool is unbeatable, and the design is bold but classic at the same time. The jacquard is a good weight, making it a warm layer under a cute jacket. The design of the mock neck has double the fabric of the long sleeve version, and this makes the neck stay upright vs slouchy. I like the slouchy neck on the long sleeve but on the sleeveless it is an improvement to have the increased structure of the neck, in my opinion.
