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.

Hemp Fleece - What it is and why we love it

We are sew excited to reveal the Fall 2018 line of Hemp & Organic Cotton Fleece designs by Yana Dee. Having the right winter wardrobe is essential if you want to stay happy when temperatures drop! Hemp Fleece is a warm, comfortable, and surprisingly underutilized fabric. It isn't readily available to purchase in many colors. That is why we had custom colors made. Yana spent a long time staring at color swatches, asking other people's opinions, and reflecting on years of wearing and selling clothes. She decided on three fun, bold colors (plus black, of course!) that we think will work for everyone. These colors...
