The Sherpa Vest is a super cozy item that's so great for layering (we love it on top of the Sylvia Dress or Willow Dress). It comes in two materials: Merino Wool or Recycled Polyester/Hemp.
The Merino Wool is an exciting fabric we sourced from Japan. It has a knit cotton backing with soft luxurious merino wool sherpa on top (so fluffy!). It feels lightweight but is very warm. The warmth comes from the thermal quality of the wooly fleece top layer. It only comes in natural, hand wash and lay flat to dry.
The Recycled Polyester/Hemp blend is made with a sustainable 80% recycled polyester and 20% hemp. This cozy sherpa will get softer with wear. It comes in natural and black. Machine washable in cool water and lay flat to dry.
The fit for the vest is the same for both materials. With wide arm holes it's a perfect layering piece with our Holly Blouse, Lucinda Blouse, Angelica Dress or Sylvia Dress. Machine washable in cool water and hang to dry.
This ethically produced vest is handmade to order by designer Cynthia Bennett in her Altadena, CA studio. We carefully source our fabrics, doing our best to buy deadstock, natural fibres, organic, recycled and from fair trade and environmentally sustainable factories when possible. All prices in USD.
