cardigan no18 alphonso mango


Thick rib super soft cotton cardigan

Cool and comfy with a chunky structure and dropped shoulders, Cardigan No.18 is crafted from our favourite Spanish yarn. This cotton is so special: robust yet soft, and full of personality. It comes from our local producers in South Spain.

Finished with buttons made out of recycled cotton fibre, another step in our commitment to our planet.

This timeless knit can be enjoyed oversized giving room for growing kids and years later will still be cute as a cropped 3/4 sleeve style. Wear it as a coat in cooler days or just over a vest as warmer days approach.

The perfect style to have handy at all times.

Garment dyed locally with the latest technology in the most sustainable way: reducing water usage, no toxic waste and GOTS certified colouring.

Matilda is 8 and wears size 8

Made in Spain.

Materials: 100% Cotton

I am a symphony in rust! This is the most autumnal I’ve felt in a long time, and I like it a whole lot. It’s hard not to feel at one with the season when one is dressed to resemble foliage or else some kind of pumpkin muffin. Okay, I know I’m being very silly. I guess I’m just trying to fend off the stress of the moment; we’re down to the nubbins of the semester, and this the point at which the wheels generally start to come off the vehicle (to mix all sorts of metaphors). Plus, I’m feeling grumpy that I don’t get to watch the hearings all day but, instead, have to go do the job for which I’m paid. How is the universe going to hold itself together, if I am not able to watch the news for ten hours straight?!? This evening, I’ll come home from teaching, and then a friend is going to stop by for a dinner of wine (or whining, as we’re likely to engage in that too) and cheese. So, current events will have to wait until nine or ten tonight, before I’ll be able to catch up on it all. Anyone finding themselves gripped by the testimony this morning? ~

This outfit was from yesterday and, yes, my pink bra is showing, and, yes, I’m still looking a little peaked in this picture. Today, I’m a little less wobbly on my feet but am trying to will myself back to feeling completely better. These past few days, I’ve been thinking about all of the things that a teacher, even a really vigilant and attentive teacher, can miss in the classroom. I mean those undercurrents of tension and unhappiness that run through students and can then affect the classroom’s tenor in really significant, negative ways. The workshop is particularly vulnerable to these sorts of dynamics and, as a result, essential elements of creative writing classes can be misused when there are problematic actors in the room: ad hominem attacks disguised as critiques of poems, personal grudges disguised as poems. When people enter the space with bad faith, they can do a lot of damage to one another, and all under the guise of making and discussing art. I’ve had many conversations recently with friends who teach creative writing, and I’m not the only one who seems to be worried about this problem. I don’t remember encountering these kinds of issues as much, when I first started teaching nearly 20 years ago. I wonder if the cruelty and the willingness to use art for harmful purposes has something to do with the discourse of this moment: the coarsening of communication, the nastiness of places like Poetry Twitter (if you ever want to see human beings acting horribly, go read how poets speak to and about one another on Twitter or Facebook), and the way our current politics has called into question the existence of expertise, objective truth, and facts. In any case, I suspect no field of study, including the arts, will be left untouched. ~
