The Clema Cable Sweater, shown in our sustainable Ethiopian cotton, is also available in organic merino.  We love this sweater for its cozy dolman sleeves and comfy fit. Wear it with high-waisted pants, a skirt or jeans. Shown in Natural and Rich Eucalyptus but offered in any shade from our natural palette. 

This design requires 88 hours for one woman to knit 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.

Named for Clema, one of the knitters working for Handspun Hope in northern Rwanda. To read more about Clema or any of the other women working for the organization in Rwanda you can go here.

Due to the nature of our handmade garments, sizes XL through 4XL will require additional raw materials and labor for creation. Please email us for a personal quote, noting size and item desired. 

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.
