Fashion designer Natalie Wood is back with a sustainable venture.

Wolfgang Scout is a fully traceable and sustainable fashion label, specialising in chunky knitwear and silk slip dresses.

 Every jumper is hand-knitted by artisans at a small female run factory in India that only employs female artisans and offers education and above average wages to their employees.

One jumper takes over 40 hours to be hand-knitted and only uses the label’s own yarn that has been developed and sourced from Australian farmers, using no chemicals in the processing of their wool.

The designer behind the brand is Wood, best known for her past labels Sample and Something Else and in the most recent years has been at Country Road and Veronika Maine.

She is joined by two other women: Carla Woidt (previously product development at Helmut Lang, Temperley and Theory) and textile designer Marianne Horton.

All pieces are hand-dyed in Australia by Horton, using natural and organic dyes only.

Prices range from $600 for a slip dress to $850 for a sweater.
