            Sustainable, ultra-soft opaque fabric.

          • The fabric is a blend of Lenzing Modal® | Spandex

            Modal 
            is a naturally derived, plant-based fabric cultivated from beech-tree pulp which is sustainably sourced in Austria, and neighbouring countries. Modal is made through an environmentally-conscious process where 95% of water and materials used to make the fabric are recycled. The fabric is also OEKO-TEX® Standard 100 certified which means it is free of harmful chemicals. This soft and drapey fabric feels beautiful against your skin.
            Snaps are made from high-quality, rust-resistant metal. They're lead-free, nickel-free and recyclable.

    Love that it’s versatile

    I haven’t worn it yet. I tried to do the cocoon cardi, but it didn’t really fit the way I thought it would. I’ll likely try again, though. I’m hopeful that I’ll get use out it in the summer, as a dress.🤞

    Versatile, Cosy, Soft

    I love it. This is my second one. It is a must in any travel wardrobe. I wear it as a scarf when traveling so that I have a dress on-hand to wear without needing an extra change of clothes in my carry on. My most common format is to wear it as the cocoon cardi for regular work days. With 2 of them, the possibilities are almost endless!

    Questioning the workmanship

    I was excited to receive my cardigan. The colour and fabric were very nice. It took some doing to figure out some of the options. Unfortunately the first day I wore this product [as the Grecian style dress] I noticed one of the snaps was coming undone. This makes me worry that this product will not hold up to every day wear.

    So far I love it
