The 100 Mile Wardrobe


Today we are working on one of the “100 Mile Wardrobe “ pieces. These are pieces where the wool is either produced or milled within 100 miles of where the piece is crafted.
.
The “100 Mile Wardrobe” is a really interesting concept from both the standpoint of the local economy, plus environmental benefits . This concept, by utilizing local fibre, supports local mills, local Alberta businesses, and depending on the wool, Alberta farmers. It also reduces the distance the fibre travels .
.
The “100 Mile Wardrobe “ pieces created this year will feature minimal styles, making the pieces wearable for years and years.
.
Shop update in progress. Please DM for purchase info in the meantime.
