The Modern Melton | Anian
Made in Canada; post-consumer recycled wool; Dye-free process; small batch/slow fashion approach (sizing available reflects batch sizing available at ordering)
The Modern Melton: Traditionally used to make pea coats for mariners, the dense weave of melton makes it superbly resistant to both water and wind. A meticulously constructed shirt for the inclement weather of the Pacific Northwest, our versatile Modern Melton Wool is a contemporary take on a timeless design—made from warm post-consumer recycled wool, it’s soft, sturdy and naturally insulating, with cozy comfort and breathability for all-day wear. As our wool has already lived a previous life—the source garments are carefully salvaged before being sorted, processed and re-woven—it features a felt-like touch that’s smoother than other wools, and it’s manufactured in a unique, dye-free process that saves water and eliminates the need for harmful chemical dyes.
Our most durable and heaviest-weight women’s shirt, the Modern Melton is cut to fit the female form and finished with a drop-in chest pocket, single-button cuffs and a longer scooped hem that falls below the seat. A double yoke rests comfortably across the shoulders and adds additional weather protection, and an inset center-back pleat allows more freedom of motion for days on the go.
Material: 17-oz 80% post-consumer recycled wool/20% nylon. Warm, durable and naturally weather-resistant, this comfortable blend is manufactured in a unique dye-free process for reduced environmental impact. Melton starts out a touch stiff, but softens quickly with wear.
Fit: Our Modern Melton is cut like a tailored shirt, with patterning that’s narrower through the shoulders and torso with more space through the hip; there’s also a bit of extra room in the arms for layering. To wear as an overcoat, we suggest moving up one size. For further details, see our sizing chart.
Wash Guide: Tightly woven wool has microbial and stain-resistant properties. Shirt only needs to be washed once a year (if that). Wash in cold water and hang to dry. To reduce energy and water use, we recommend washing only when necessary. Less washing also gives your garments a longer life. Use non-toxic, degradable detergents and avoid chemical-based spot cleaners.
