It's tettering on winter here. Cold nights and mornings, but the days are reaching a pleasant warmness. Glorious fall weather still, but not for long I fear. Which makes me want the perfect sweater and I believe I've found it from flocks. Not only is it just plain fabulous looking but the story behind the company itself it is lovely too. Each sweater or scarf or hat comes with an identification tag, telling the story of the sheep or alpaca that produced the wool for the garment. By identifying the creature that helped make the piece of clothing we're wearing, we're reminded of the larger story of making and consuming. We have a choice in everything we bring into our lives, so knowing that the sheep that contributed the wool, that keeps me warm, is well treated and from some far flung land, reminds me of the bigger picture. It's never just a sweater. That, and the fact that it looks absolutely fabulous too, makes this particular sweater a win, win all around!
