Sonia Sweater in Ethiopian Cotton
Our very popular Sonia Sweater is hand crocheted from our sustainable Ethiopian hand spun cotton. This sweater has an elegant shape and dropped hemline that is flattering to just about any body style. This ultra soft design will soon be a favorite go-to top for lots of occasions. It's a perfect compliment to silky skirts or well-tailored trousers. Shown in Mimosa Legume but available in any shade from our natural cotton palette.
This design requires 48 hours for one woman to crochet by hand. This time is not inclusive of the laborious task of creating the yarn and hand dyeing it organically. Please allow 8 weeks for the delivery of this custom-created sweater.

Our Ethiopian cotton is sourced from a women's cooperative in Addis Ababa. There, the ladies hand spin cotton on drop spindles. The cotton is then imported into Rwanda where the women working for Handspun Hope ply and dye the yarn.
Handspun Hope is a sustainable fashion brand committed to ethically-sourced materials and minimal environmental impact.
