A few weeks ago I was asked to submit a photo of one of my favorite wool looks to a campaign for Woolmark called Fashion by Feelings. In their effort to promote wool as a sustainable material they set up a street style competition for styling wool garments. The looks are categorized into feelings evoked by the photos.
I chose "loved."
On cold winter days I love to curl up in this Icelandic wool sweater and read books about long ago times and places. Snow is always an added bonus that was hard to come by in August. For hundreds of years people have used wool to make clothes for their loved ones. Even now, getting a cozy sweater from someone makes you feel cared for, there's innate sense that the person who gave it is looking out for your well being.
Though my look is a little more on the romantic end of the love spectrum, to me it still evokes love. This is one of my favorite date outfits when the temperature drops.
The warmth of love's embrace
