The Sweater Savior Project


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. And its 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 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.

Add an applique to a basic pullover, or transform it into a versatile cardigan, fingerless gloves, beret, or even a children’s sweater, dog sweater or pillow. See cashmere sweater and accessory options here, children’s and dog sweaters here, and home decorative accessories here.


Appliqué options and color charts can be seen below and on each item’s page in the shop section.   Choose your applique, appliqué color, and create a DIY (design it yourself) bespoke cashmere creation.

Celebrate the new year by giving one or more of your cashmere sweater a new life!  By participating in the Sweater Savior Project, you’ll have something new for yourself, which is a real treat, and you’ll also be doing your part  to save the planet by reducing waste and landfill.

Even better,  by recycling your own sweater, you’ll save 30% off the listed price. Use the code Sweater Savior upon checkout for a 30% discount and free shipping on your chosen design. See our contact page for our contact information and address to ship your sweater.

Simple additions of an appliqué and/or hole repair are also available. Contact us for options.

Happy 2020 everyone! And as always, “Live Green And Prosper”!
