Why wool?

Glad you asked! Merino wool is the world’s finest and softest type of wool, making it one of nature’s magical fibers. It easily absorbs and dissipates moisture and regulates your body temperature, keeping you toasty warm in colder weather and cool and fresh in higher temps. Not only that, it pills less than cashmere and has lasting durability so you can enjoy your heirloom longer.

Where are the sweaters and accessories made?

Le Lion’s pieces are knit in a family-run factory in Italy. Each is meticulously hand-linked—a method of seaming pieces of a garment together.

How does monogramming work?

Our monograms offer a playful twist on the traditional. We use standard two or three letter monograms and finish them with hand-applied sequins.
2 initials: Both letters are the same size.
3 initials: The middle letter is the largest, traditionally meant for your last name.

Can I do a custom monogram or use a different font?

For the moment, we only offer the options listed. Bespoke is coming soon!
