Did you stop and look around lately? Did you notice nature is changing and we approaching colder weather what means more layers will be required really soon? But with the good basics, we don’t need to bother at all. They keep us looking stylish but warm as well. Fashion favourite season is here, sweater weather is in a full swing.
You don’t need to own many sweaters more important is to own the right one. I found that 4 works just fine for me. If you can, try to get your hands on cashmere knit and thick woollen sweater. Thinner cashmere sweater will be great to wear under jackets and coats without adding extra bulk. The thick woollen sweaters are great to wear on its own or when the temperature goes way below zero you will have the warmest mid-layer.
The cashmere, merino wool and mohair are the most luxurious materials. Merino wool is a more affordable option, but still nice and soft and keeps you incredibly warm. But even cashmere doesn’t need to be expensive these days. There is plenty affordable but still sustainable options. Or you can shop at the end of the season when prices are more budget-friendly. Have you heard that Evarlane came with the new products as ReCycled cashmere? We can do better for our nature while we wrapping up in the knits. It’s a win-win option. And if you get cold really easily or you like a chunky sweater then handknitted I love Mr Mittens jewels are right for you. Check them out for an knit project inspiration or to wrap in one of their lovely fashionable knits.

When knits start to look a bit tired and worn out, gentle and patient shaving or brushing give them a fresh new look again. Also to extend the unnecessary washing you can use knit freshener to give your knit a fresh new feeling.
