J confesses her undying love for knitwear and shares some eco alternatives.
When the weather gets even a little bit cold I automatically head towards my ever expanding collection of knitwear. As previously said, I am a sucker for a good cable knit jumper or cashmere cardigan. From an eco-conscious fashion perspective, there are a lot of options on the market for your next wool-based apparel purchase:
John Smedley is the one that first springs to mind, they have been a UK based woolen mill since the 1748 and their most recent collection at London Collection: Mens was just divine.
Brixton based Lowie is a firm favourite of mine; their wonderful chunky knits all have a touch of vintage inspiration, definitely not 'just another jumper'.
I've previously waxed lyrical about the wonderful Good One. These chaps recycle cast away knitted items into new fashion-forward pieces.
The Geeen Room at ASOS is always worth a glance as the range of labels means you might just find something you weren't expecting. John Laing's exclusive knitwear range was my pleasant surprise of late.
The other R~A~J~E day when it was near enough Baltic outside, the natural wardrobe decision was this cream, loose-knit, fluffy number.
Teamed with black skinny's and a pair of fake Converse it was perfect for lounging around a coffee shop for a day with R, A & E dreaming of where our next set of Adventures could take us.
