Taking care of our clothes and making repairs when necessary is paramount in achieving a long-lasting, sustainable wardrobe. However, specialty textiles such as knits can be incredibly finicky when it comes to maintenance. So, to help us unravel the secrets to nurturing our knits, Swap Society founder Nicole Robertson chatted with Ellen Saville from The Endery—a knitwear company that creates one-of-a-kind, handmade knits out of luxury deadstock yarns—to talk all things sweaters.
It’s officially fall! Here in Los Angeles, we don’t have the same clearly defined seasons or wardrobe changes, yet we all still crave one. We’re ready to take any excuse to pull on a new comfy sweater, even if it’s just sitting in that air conditioned coffee shop Downtown. On the site we have “jumpers” for all occasions and all variations of this crisp season. If you’re like us and prepping for fall in a warmer climate then we have some less-heavy pieces to get you into the spirit. On the other hand, if you live in an area with actual seasons and are looking to cozy up as it cools down, we’ve got you covered as well! And, as always, for those adventurous types who want to shake things up, we have fun pieces to really make a statement these next few months. Fall doesn’t just mean pumpkin spice everything, it means looking great and feeling good!
