Rarely a day passes when you don't need a sweater in San Francisco. Looking for ethically-sourced, sustainable knitwear to keep you warm on a foggy morning? Let's just say your options are limited. But Oakland-based designer Myrrhia Resnick is here to help.
Resnick's Fall 2014 Myrrhia Fine Knitwear collection includes sweaters, dresses, capes, and accessories priced between $42 and $440. Manufactured and hand-finished in Oakland through a no-waste process, Myrrhia's designs are an eco-friendly way to work polished knits into your wardrobe. The buckle cowl-neck scarf ($87) will add a dose of drama to a simple top, and the sleeveless, heat-wave patterned dress ($182) can easily stay on call year-round. Right now, Myrrhia is taking pre-orders for her fall designs and offering a 15 percent discount through August 23 with the code WOOLIES14. Stock up now and stay warm, all year long.
