Bamboo Fleece for the Winter Win!

We have a lot of great fabrics in use here at Yana Dee. Fabric is the main ingredient in our fashion recipes that make our clothes so long-lasting, nice to wear, and eco-friendly. It's tough to name "the best," but I would dare to nominate our 100% Bamboo Fleece as one candidate.  First of all, yes! Bamboo can be made into a textile. This vigorous plant requires no pesticides or fertilizers to grow, is completely renewable, and provides an abundance of usable oxygen to our atmosphere. As a textile, it is wonderfully breathable and insulating. It's also in the top-running for being the...

Wonderfully Warm Winter Wool - Handmade by People Who Live Where the Air Hurts Your Face

We wear the clothes we make. We live where it gets really cold and we like to be warm. That is why we love wool so much. Not only is it super warm, it is also breathable (so you don't get sticky if you sweat a little). Wool wicks moisture like magic, so it will keep you warm even if you get a little damp. If you think about it, that makes sense because wool is what keeps sheep warm and dry even in freezing rain, but doesn't overheat easily either.  Zero-Waste, Upcycled Wool Products As an ethical apparel company,...

Fall & Winter Favorites from Yana Dee - Guest Blog by Rose Soma

I’ll never forget when I picked out my first Yana Dee Merino Wool piece. This long sleeve, scoop neck staple is incredibly warm and cozy. It’s stretchy and easy to wear, and the inside truly feels like no other shirt. It quickly became one of my favorites, and I can’t wait to wear it with my favorite gray beanie throughout the winter! It also goes quite well with my absolute favorite earrings; salvaged leather teardrops by Yana Dee as well.

French Terry is the Best Terry

French Terry is the Best Terry

Nothing brings outward sophistication and inward coziness like French Terry! What exactly is French Terry? It is a knit fabric with two distinct textures. The inside has loose loops or piles that make this fabric feel soft, squishy, and warm yet breathable. The outside fabric has a tighter knit that looks sophisticated. So this means you can feel like you are wearing a cozy bath robe while looking totally appropriate for public. Win-win! Even though they have similarities, Yana Dee has two very distinct types of French Terry. They are Bamboo & Organic Cotton Yarn Dyed French Terry, and Soy & Organic...
