I could never stand wool, too itchy and uncomfortable. That’s why I was happy to find this comfortable coat (Canadian designer Frank Lyman, made in Canada). This fit and flare coat is a high-low style with big bold houndstooth in black and burgundy, and a fabulous double collar which has wire in the piping for shaping.
This hemp scarf came in several colours, I chose burgundy and natural. All the clothes I have bought at DRIZZLE & SHINE are either organic cotton, bamboo or hemp.
Rieker shoes are non-leather and so comfortable for walking everywhere in Seattle.
I’m glad I’m allergic to wool (even so-called fine wool) or I would have bought it all through the years thinking it doesn’t hurt animals. I have never worn fur knowing the cruelty of abusing and killing animals. Wool is like milk and eggs, in the sense that we are duped into thinking these animals have a good life, when in reality the suffering is the same, if not worse.
Jean wrote an informative article about why we don’t wear wool (besides being itchy and allergic).
That’s why I support Canadian-made, USA-made, fair-trade, eco-friendly and cruelty-free companies.
Let’s make the world a better place with compassion!
