Coming to you with effortless knitted subtlety, Ound’s Superfine Merino Caoba Cardigan is the pinnacle of staple Autumn/Winter wear with a timeless sensibility that never gets old.

Featuring a button-up front, practical pockets and intricately ribbed cuffs, this cardi is deliciously warm and layerable, whether popped on for a leafy stroll or bundled up under your go-to winter coat. The textured marl knit is an ideal addition to your wardrobe as the months get colder, in such a beautifully neutral hue and wearable silhouette, we can’t see this style ever becoming tired.

Ound dedicates their business practice to honesty, love and care, choosing to work with wool for its biodegradable, renewable nature in the rural areas of Uruguay. Their Superfine Merino Caoba Cardigan is no different, composed of 70% extra-fine Merino and 30% Corriedale wools; a love letter to sheep breeding practices started 10,000 years ago in Asia. Ound make sure to also process their products without chemicals to further the conscious actions that underpin their work.

It's the thoughtful way Ound consciously strategise production within their business that means we can’t help but love what they do. Handcrafting beautifully timeless pieces with such respect for the planet is all we could want here at MIMMO Studios. Why not have a look at other chunky knits from Ound, like their Merino Molle Jumper or their Tala Jumper to really get a feel for the distinctive Ound quality we know and love?

Product Details

70% extra-fine Merino, 30% Corriedale wool

3 Ply Twisted Yarn

Handcrafted by female artisans in rural Uruguay


Processed without dyes and chemicals

Respectful of the environment and individually made

Ound hand-knitted pieces are made in Uruguay, a small country in southern South America that is home to exceptional wool and craftsmanship. Besides Australia and New Zealand, Uruguay has some of the finest Merino herds – small in number and with abundant land to graze. Many women in rural Uruguay live from wool and have established groups of hand-knitters. Through these forms of independent cooperation, the female artisans create work for themselves and provide for their families whilst
staying in their home villages and keeping their traditional skills alive. Ound works with one of the leading groups based in Santa Lucia. They provide Ound with premium
products that meet their high-quality standards of making and finishing. Each hand-knitted garment takes three to five days to be crafted and will last a lifetime if handled with care.

Following Ound's fascination with the colours of nature, they work exclusively with undyed wool and embrace its natural colour range. They create different colour shades by mixing and hand-knitting yarns in a variety of ways. Currently, they work with super fine wools
from Merino and Corriedale breeds, and by introducing new qualities to the mix, the prospects can be endless.
Ound wools are free from chemicals, and their yarns are three-ply twisted to minimise pilling.

Care Instructions

Help the planet.

Wool has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, with the planet in mind we recommend airing out your jumper on a dry day before considering dry cleaning.

Some natural pilling may occur during use. Handle with care to preserve the original look.

About the brand

Ound is a knitwear brand founded by Paula Delgado as an exploration of materials. Paula is inspired by the philosophy of permaculture, understanding the mutual relationship between land, animals and humans. This translates into her brand in the form of simple, pared back designs which are elegant and timeless.

Paula is motivated to prove that there is an alternative to the fashion industry - a broken system which is based on high-speed turnover, overproduction and waste - something she experienced first hand in her high level fashion design career.

Ound's jumpers are made using hand-knitted undyed wool. Each of their pieces is unique and they are made in limited numbers in Uruguay, supporting the skilled communities of women who hand knit each item. Each of the garments takes three to five days to be crafted and will last a lifetime if handled with care.

“In this day and age, the real nature of luxury is intimate and lies in simplicity and high quality materials.”
