Spliced sweater dress SB005

$195 NZD

Space Between’s spliced sweater dress is made out of up-cycled grey merino corporate uniform waste. The ‘previous life’ garments used were the NZ Post ‘dark sand v-neck jumper’ the ‘dark sand mid sleeve polo neck top’. The additional fabric on the front panel is made with end of stock jersey, which is made in New Zealand. It is made using the spliced technique as developed at Space Between (Jennifer Whitty and Holly McQuillan).

It can be worn in multiple ways as the extra collars allow for flexibility of wear and use. We hope that this extends your engagement with this garment and lengthens its lifespan.

Main fabric: 100% merino (up-cycled from corporate uniforms).
Binding: Coral jersey (end of stock)

Garment manufacturing: Made in New Zealand by the not for profit, Earthlink Apparel.

cleaning care and washing instructions

We advise that you wash sparingly on a cold/30 degree wash to keep this garment smiling and save water.  Try to use environmentally friendly options, which do not use optical whiteners and petrochemicals since these have a negative impact on our planet and skin.
