Soothing fall colors, soft fabrics, and sustainable practices: What more could you ask for?
I love summer and everything that comes with it. Beaching, surfing, camping, barbecues and watermelon. But come mid-August, I’m about ready for the heat to subside so I can slip on some fuzzy socks and cozy up.
My self-care practices switch from sweaty hikes and froyo to good books and hot cocoa. And the new prAna Cozy Up Sweatshirt is going to be the perfect post-work snuggle sweater this year (anyone else drooling over the burnt caramel color??).
This pullover is crafted from a special hemp blend, specifically 55 percent hemp, 25 percent recycled polyester and 20 percent Lenzing Tencel/Lyocell (a sustainable fabric that involves upcycling a substantial proportion of cotton scraps, e.g. from garment production, in addition to wood pulp sourced from certified sustainable forestry).
But the Cozy Up pair isn’t the only new testament to prAna’s sustainability ethos. The entire new line is created in part from hemp plants grown to the best standards in China (because growing hemp isn’t legal in the U.S. yet).
Once hemp is processed into fabric, it resembles linen in a lot of ways. It’s lightweight and breathable, and because prAna blends theirs with other materials like organic cotton and spandex, it doesn’t wrinkle as much as linen does.
Thanks to its natural heartiness, hemp doesn’t require any chemical pesticides or fertilizers, which means it’s safer for the farmers that grow it as well as the land it’s grown on.
It makes sense then that the hemp collection tagline is “Clothing for a Positive Change”!
In addition to the cute new styles, unique fits, and sustainable fabrics, the entire hemp line is UPF 50+ and has natural odor-reducing properties. So yeah, throw that sweater on three days in a row! No one will know.
The makers of prAna strive to inspire healthy, active and free-spirited living. You can trust them because they do it all themselves: They are yogis, climbers and world travelers who design products based off of their own experiences. It doesn’t get more authentic than that!
