Happy New Year to all! I have been waiting to share a review of some fresh new items I just received from Wool&. We have been having so much rainy weather that it has been tricky to grab photos but I’m managed to squeeze in a few in between the rain and tornado warnings! What a crazy January it has been so far.
There’s nothing quite as exciting as Woolie mail! I love opening a package from Wool& and this one has some super yummy goodies in it!

First up, I got the Wool& Holly Interlock Top, size Medium in the incredible Marine Blue colorway. I absolutely ADORE this blue color and the top is gorgeous! I was a little nervous about the slightly cropped length, but it works really well with the culottes and is AMAZING for layering both over and under the Wool& dresses. I love the looser, almost batwing fit of the arms and it is overall so comfortable and pretty. Let’s check out the specs on this shirt.
From the website:
A polished midweight layer in our interlock fabric. Your perfect top to layer over dresses with its drop shoulder and slightly cropped hem. Long sleeves, crew neckline, and side slits at the hem.
Sizing Tip: The Holly Interlock Top has a roomy fit throughout the body with fitted sleeves. Fits true to size.

I had been wanting to try the Wool& Frame Ponte Culottes for ages and they did not disappoint. The first thing I noticed about these pants is that the Ponte Fabric is amazing. It’s a nice, substantial ribbed texture with some thickness and stretch. Yes, they feel as comfortable as all my other Wool& favorites, but it also has a little bit more of a business casual texture. (Off topic but I would LOVE this fabric to be made into a jogger style pant or a bootcut flare pant). I have always loved culotte style pants and I know these will be perfect for my weather year round. A note about fit. The size medium fits me well, and I know it is my correct size. (I am 5’6″, 175 pounds, and about a size 10 in pants). I’m very much a pear shape and I felt they fit a little snug around my hips and thighs on first try. However, having worn Wool& clothing quite a bit I know that these will relax slightly after a bit of wear, which should allow for the perfect fit. Here’s Wool&’s description of these:
From the website:
Finally, sophisticated pants that you can also lounge in. Features the classic wide leg culotte silhouette, plus front inseam pockets. Our midweight ponte fabric provides structure and a touch of comfortable stretch.

I have worn my leggings more this season than I probably have ever before, so scoring another pair was super exciting. These leggings feel wonderful. The fabric is soft and stretchy and the waist is higher rise than the Axis leggings I already own (for comparison, the waist is also higher on the Summit Leggings compared to the Woolx Piper and Woolx McKenna Leggings that I wear all the time). So if you are looking for a high waisted legging, this is the pair for you! At first I felt like they were a little snug around my not-so-small stomach, but once I wore them around for awhile they felt fantastic. They are also really slimming, which is a bonus. The pockets are HUGE.
From the website:
A midweight, fully opaque legging that keeps you warm without bulkiness and stays odor free for days. Comes with a side panel with external patch pockets that effortlessly fits your phone. Snug fit that holds you in, high waist, and gusset. Our custom developed stretch jersey fabric moves easily with your body and resists pilling.
Sizing Tip: Just like the Axis Legging, but with pockets! Fits true to size.

This jacket is surprisingly warm despite the lightweight construction. I really love some of the design features particularly the design of the collar and how it has some structure of it’s own….it really gives it a more flattering fit. I am wearing the Wool& Hilltop Wool Fleece Jacket in Forest Night, size Medium. Although I think the jacket fits as it should and it is comfortable as is, I might consider sizing up in the future. I think I would prefer a looser fit for layering. I love the Forest Night color. The pockets are generous and comfy. The fact that this jacket is made from recycled wool is icing on the cake!
From the website:
We sourced this jacket’s soft, beautiful recycled wool shearling from a textile mill in Prato, Italy— a town known for producing fine wool products for centuries. Its stable, lofty structure will keep you warm while also remaining breathable. Welted hand warmer pockets, mock neck, and elastic trim. No adventure is complete without the Hilltop.
Sizing Tip: The Hilltop Wool Fleece Jacket fits true to size. If you prefer an oversized fit, size up.
