Wol Hide is an intimate collection of sweaters and loungewear. Soft, natural pieces with a focus on knit structures and organic textures. We choose fibers for how they wear on us and on the environment, driven by a desire to create quality, timeless pieces. Our products are made both in the USA and with small family run factories in Peru.
Started by Philadelphia based textile designer Leah D'Ambrosio from the love of sculpting textures and forms through knitting. Wol Hide strives to create soft, natural and comfy pieces. Layers that feel like second skin.
FALL / WINTER 2017
The fall collection is made using a lot of different Baby Alpaca and Alpaca blended yarns for subtle differences in texture. Finer gauge pieces for under layers mixed with bulkier pieces for outer layers.
Our cut & sew pieces are made in Pennsylvania with an organic cotton, hemp blend jersey fabric. We teamed up with a local natural dyer, Honest Alchemy to garment dye some of the Easy Sets to a beautiful mustard color using all natural & plant dye extracts.
Throw collaboration with The Dogwood Dyer
She works in her Southern California studio using locally grown and foraged plants as well as ethically sourced dyestuffs, she aids in creating sustainable garments to be cherished. Unlike synthetic dyes that make up the vast majority of color seen today on clothing, The Dogwood Dyer's natural dyestuffs are made up of only plants & minerals that come from the earth with no laboratory or factory derived chemicals. To further reduce environmental impact of the process, water is minimally consumed with 80 percent of the refuse water recycled back into her gardens.
