The Donegal Crew Neck Sweater from American Trench is chiefly concerned with feel. We sourced this merino/cashmere blend from Ireland, spun that blend into luxury yarn in Italy - and manufactured the final product here in the United States. The journey alone highlights the effort it takes in creating the truly swaddling-soft texture found in this piece.
The familiar crew neck shape is elevated by subtle ribbing at the wrist and hem. The ribbed crew neck collar, too, reminds us of classic sweater construction. And while the wool is plenty thick - we don't find the drape to be particularly droopy. Flecked yarn pushes through pops of color - another notch in the texture column.
This sweater skates the delicate line between too soft and too tough. Any sweater that avoids itch without sacrificing structure is in many ways impressive. That's to say, there's nothing at all frail about a merino-cashmere blend. It's actually quite serious.
Available for FW21 in Ash, Brownie, and Currant.
