Introducing Kate


Kate is wearing a springtime outfit inspired by classic boys' wear. Her striped sweater is made of 100% wool leftovers, making it an environmentally friendly garment: Patons Classic Merino in a medium peacock blue, Moda Dea Washable Wool in a sassy kiwifruit green, and Cascade Quattro in a cheery blend of orange and pink, set off with a neckline and sleeve cuffs in red organic O-Wool.


Kate's stylish and versatile navy slacks are knit from Cascade 220, and she wears sensible brown shoes in Moda Dea Washable Wool.

"I can go outside," says Kate, "because I'm wearing shoes."


Kate herself is a natural -- "natural mix" in Patons Classic Merino, that is. Her brown eyes, red nose, and slightly asymmetrical mouth (oops) are all stitched in wool.
