I don’t know about you but I have a terrible time trying to buy winter clothes of good quality that are made from natural fibres — preferably wool! — in a sustainable way. Although I don’t sew (yet) I do knit but my list of projects hasn’t included a garment for me for a while.
A capsule wardrobe as espoused by my capsule wardrobe mentors Shannon and Fiona fits with my simple living philosophy, endorses my preference to avoid fast fashion and marries with my sustainable choices.
My difficulty is when winter comes around. Unlike a lot of people I’m overly sensitive to cold temperatures so a few layers of cotton just don’t work for me, I need wool, fleece and well combined layers. Flimsy mixes of cotton and viscose are too light for me even in the temperate climate I live in but, short of moving into Kathmandu apparel only, what’s a girl to do?
Well yesterday I got Smitten, when I read this I could not believe my eyes.
