How the hell is it already mid-November? I mean, is it just me, or was it a particularly quick (fleeting?) autumn this year? Then again, maybe it only feels that way since I spent pretty much the whole season huddled over my computer (#BlogLife). At any rate, sweater weather is officially upon us, so might as well make the best of it. And the Snowflake Jacquard Cardigan from England’s People Tree is a great way to do just that. Handknit by students at the Fair Trade certified Kumbeshwar Technical School in Nepal, the sweater is made from humanely harvested wool that’s been treated with environmentally friendly, low-impact dyes. Along with an education in fine garment making, the KTS attendees are also provided with full medical coverage, a number of social benefits, and a fair and equitable wage, making this one sweater that’ll have you feeling warm inside and out (as in literally and figuratively). Details include a shawl collar, jacquard snowflake design and natural horn buttons.
