One of the recent additions to my Fall wardrobe is this Green (Cypress), Pointelle Sweater from Gaiam.
A blend of organic cotton and rayon made from sustainable bamboo, this sweater is really soft to the touch and gentle on the environment. I really like the design of the knit and how it is a little extra chunky at the end of the sleeves and how it drops down in the back. The scarf-neck is great too, especially for the cooling weather here on the East Coast.
Since this sweater is great for layering, it can be worn over a tank top, over long sleeves, or layered beneath a heavier coat or vest. I would definitely say that this sweater feels like it is made from a high quality material that has some weight, substance, and durability. It’s versatility makes it a good choice for a go-to sweater for running errands, or for dressing up (try layering over a dress with a cute belt).The color choices are: black, cypress (green), purple, and teal. These are great because the black is classic and the other 3 colors are just the right amount of color to really make an outfit pop without going overboard. The Pointelle Sweater from Gaiam is comfy and casual, yet sleek and sophisticated, and good for the Earth’s sustainability.
