It has been deliciously warm in Southern Oregon. This winter has been the most non-suffering of my life and believe me I know what a long-suffering winter feels like having lived in Massachusetts and Vermont.
But even with all the warm weather, I love the feel of comfy clothes and sweaters. While people on the east coast have been bundled up to the eyeballs for the last few months, we have been running around in light sweaters and going without socks.
A few handcrafted clothing items that I have been enjoying this winter come from Jasmine Patten, owner, maker and designer of Dervish Clothing. Her motto is that, “we are meant to feel amazingly beautiful in our clothes”. She sells soft comfortable clothes for life, movement and “feeling juicy”.
Her clothing is great for keeping warm, or for comfortable breathable layers under all the jackets and scarves.
I am particularly enamored with her use of the recycled sweater. I have a few pair of her hand warmers and I wear them all the time, even while working indoors, especially in the morning.
Jasmine Patten lives and makes her work in Ashland Oregon. You can sign-up for Jasmines Newsletter on her website (free shipping when you sign-up) at www.dervishclothing.com
