I love sharing the amazing sustainably made clothing I find with you guys and, boy, has it been a while. This week I found this great navy blue sweater by wooden ships at Willow (a boutique in Albuquerque, NM). I have a hard time finding sweaters that I absolutely love because I’m very sensitive to wool. (It makes me itch like crazy.) So you can imagine how gaga I went when I did find an ethically made, cotton sweater!!
I loved this sweater from the moment I touched it. Anyone who has been shopping with me knows I wander around stores running my fingers across everything. I stop and look back at the things that feel nice. Many times I find something that is ugly or not my size, but occasionally the universe aligns itself and I find something amazing!
wooden ships recycles, composts, uses eco-friendly dyes on their packaging, utilizes solar panels, and many of their items are crocheted or knit by hand. Seriously, amazing business standards being set right there. I wish more companies would follow the example.
The sweater is 60% cotton and 40% acrylic. It did begin to lose its shape over the course of the multiple outfit changes, but I think a slouchy casual sweater is beautiful, so it didn’t bother me too much. I loved the slightly higher in the front and lower in the back hem. It draped magnificently.
What is your favorite item to wear when the weather turns chilly?
P.S. This is not a sponsored post. I really did just love the sweater.
