At the top of the new year, many of us make hard decisions about the clothing in our closets. Purging what doesn’t fit, is damaged, or just plain boring is part of our decision making. The sad part is that sometimes a favorite garment appears to be heading toward the rag bag.
Often times the piece in question is a moth-eaten cashmere sweater.
A good friend calls me the Sweater Savior. It's true, in fact. I rescue castoff sweaters and reincarnate them into new, eco friendly versions of their former self. And I can reincarnate yours too. Unless, of course, it looks like the red swimsuit in the pinup girl photo..
There are ways of keeping those destructive moths away from your precious cashmere, as you can read about on my blog here
But if your best intentions fail, or if you simply want to redo one or more of your cashmere pieces, the choices are many.
Sustainability and Eco Consciousness is on most people's minds these days. I've been thinking of ways to make it clearer, easier, and even more fun for people to become more sustainable in their wardrobe choices. This is an idea that can be used in a couple of ways.
Add an appliqué or more to a basic pullover, transform it into a versatile cardigan, accessory, or even a children’s sweater, dog sweater or pillow.
By upcycling your own sweater to create a new garment, you'll save 30% off the original listed price of a comparable item using the code Sweater Savior.
The other way of using this program is to recycle your sweaters for a $ credit toward any purchase. Items need to be clean and in fairly good condition.
Celebrate this new year by giving one or more of your cashmere sweaters a new life! By participating in the Sweater Savior Project, you’ll have something new for yourself, and you’ll also be doing your part to save the planet by reducing waste and landfill.
Simple additions of an appliqué and/or hole repair are also available.
Please feel free to email or call me with any cashmere desires, questions about this program and where to send your sweaters. Contact us HERE.
Happy 2024 everyone! And as always, “Live Green And Prosper”!
