Autumn is here! It's here! It's finally here! We couldn't be more excited for cooler weather, pumpkin bread baking, wool boots and the cutest and most comfortable organic and wool clothing anywhere! The new line from prAna is absolutely gorgeous and we are slightly obsessed with the new Matilda dress and it's many color options!
We are huge fans of prAna's recycled and ethical sourced wool!
There are a lot of benefits to wearing wool: it has the ability to regulate body temperature, it’s durable, naturally mildew resistant (a good thing for anyone in the northwest), and it’s recyclable. Our recycled wool comes from old garments and the cuttings from new garments. After being sorted, cleaned, and reduced down to fiber in a facility in Italy, our recycled wool is spun into yarn and knitted into new, warm and snuggly pieces.

Conventionally grown cotton consumes approximately 25% of the insecticides and more than 10% of the pesticides used in the world. Organic production systems on the other hand, replenish and maintain soil fertility, reduce the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers, and build biologically diverse agriculture.
Fair Trade standards ensure that garment workers have safe working conditions, a voice in the workplace, higher earnings, and that women are treated equally. Although these rights may seem basic, they are simply not guaranteed in many of the countries where clothing is produced.
