Wrap yourself in warmth and style — and do good in the process — with the Red Twist cashmere wrap developed by the Northwest’s Amy Cooper, an avid traveler and photographer. When Cooper was living in Asia, she was searching for the perfect cashmere sweater to keep her warm on her travels. She couldn’t find exactly what she was looking for — so she designed it herself.
Made of 100 percent pure cashmere (there is no man-made wool added into it), the lightweight wrap is designed to be both fashionable and versatile. It can be worn as a sweater, open as a long cardigan, or wrapped like a shawl. The thread is two-ply to prevent pilling. It is one-size-fits-all and comes in 17 colors, ranging from subtle neutrals such as charcoal and oatmeal, to a gorgeous burnt orange and vibrant pink.
During her time in Asia, Cooper also learned of the hardships of living in Asia, especially for young girls. As a mother of three girls herself, she is passionate about helping girls have access to education and decided to donate a portion of each purchase to Room to Read. Room to Read is a nonprofit that focuses on literacy and gender equality in education, and supports sending underprivileged girls to school. The Red Twist wrap is $195.
