Clementine Sweater in Ethiopian Cotton
Our Clementine Sweater is a feminine yet chic silhouette with a twist of fun. Full puff sleeves, embellished with details of baubles, will have heads turning. This luxuriously soft sweater is knit by hand in Rwanda from our sustainable, hand-spun, Ethiopian cotton. Shown in Natural but available in any shade from our natural cotton palette.
This design requires 60 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 Clementine, who works for Handspun Hope in northern Rwanda. Learn more of Clementine's story or any of the women working for the organization here.

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.
