Hand-knit Sweaters from Nepal
Late each Autumn, we receive a shipment of hand-knit wool sweaters from Nepal. Made by women in a fair-trade collective, these are gorgeous and warm! Pullovers are unlined, and zip-front sweaters are lined with a polar fleece-like fabric. The lined sweaters are warm enough to function as a winter coat here in Pennsylvania. Here's our friend, Faith, trying on one of the newly-arrived sweaters - thanks for being willing to model, Faith!
