Christmas knitwear is a staple of the festive season. Whether it's the novelty Christmas jumper, your nan's knitted masterpiece or cosy knitwear accessories, wrapping up in your favourite knits is all part of the seasonal experience.

Bright and beautiful knits can make the perfect gift idea, too. There are plenty of options, whether it's a hat and scarf duo, a co-ord set, or a full matching knitted combo.

In this post, I'll share why choosing a sustainable and independent knitwear brand this Christmas is an excellent choice for conscious and considered gifting. I'll also share my top picks from the Cara & The Sky collection to give you plenty of gifting inspo.


Why supporting small and independent brands matter

The Christmas period is about spending time with the important people in our lives and exchanging gifts to show our love and appreciation.

However, we're becoming increasingly aware of the impact our purchases and fashion choices have on the environment. Shopping small and buying from independent British brands is a great way to find a thoughtful and unique gift that doesn't cost the earth.


Sustainable and slow fashion at Cara & The Sky

Slow fashion is a concept that prioritises quality over quantity when it comes to producing and consuming clothing. It's an approach that can be applied to all phases of designing, making and buying fashion.

At Cara & The Sky, we're a proud slow fashion and sustainable knitwear brand.

We produce our collections in small batches and create unique designs you won't find on the high street. Our pieces are made in the UK using fully audited factories. This means we limit our air miles and carbon footprint. We can also ensure our manufacturers are paid a fair wage and have safe working conditions.
