The Heavy Wool Overshirt is 100% heavyweight 23oz wool, the heaviest in our Wool collections with beautiful texture and heathered colour. A minimalist utility jacket, this design features a shirt-style collar, adjustable button cuffs, clean line chest pockets, and a lined yoke at the shoulders. This design uses Corozo buttons, made from the seeds of the tagua palm tree - chosen because they are natural, durable, and scratch-resistant alternatives to plastic.

This material is Climate Beneficial™ Wool, certified by Fibershed and sourced from California - we selected it for its focus on farmers and ranchers who practice carbon drawdown, a program that regenerates soil health and sequesters carbon at higher rates than conventional practices. This method also works to build resistance to drought, improves soil water retention, increases agricultural productivity naturally, and is a form of regenerative agriculture rooted in restoring ecosystem health long term.

Made in Canada - this item was manufactured at our factory in Victoria, British Columbia.

Model is 5'9" and wears size small in Charcoal. Second model is 5’9” and wears size medium in Green.

Wool is highly durable and anti-microbial, meaning it really doesn't need to be cleaned. If you must clean it, here's how:

  • Spot clean or eco-dry clean only
  • Do not hand wash
  • Do not machine wash or dry

Easy, as always

The overshirt feels sturdy and well-made. It feels like it will last forever and that's exactly what I was looking for. I purchased a size up from my usual size because I wanted to fit sweaters under it. I can get sweaters under it, but it's a bit narrower in the shoulders than I expected. I do wonder if it might soften and fit a little easier with some wear.

Dream come true

It is the overshirt/shacket I have been searching for! It fits perfectly with or without a sweater underneath.

A forever staple

I've already received so many compliments since buying this. I bought the Green, and it's so lovely to pair with many of my other items in my closet. The fabric is so sturdy, and I love the boxier, oversized fit of it. Love that it's made in Victoria by seamstresses who are paid a Vic living wage.
