Made from a blend of recycled oyster shells and water bottles, combined with natural lambswool yarn, the SeaWell line is anti-microbial, ultra-soft, and lightweight, with designs inspired by the traditional buoy markings from New England lobster traps. Proceeds go toward reseeding up to 30 oysters for each sweater sold, and so far, Long Wharf’s effort have restored a total of 70,000 oysters. Available in a variety of styles and in navy, cream, or gray hues, $128-$158 // longwharfsupply.com
