The Sleep Shirt's First Online Pop Up with Canadian Knitwear Brand

Ethically-made knitwear

We are excited to announce our first online pop-up featuring Bare Knitwear, a Canadian company that creates modern, high quality, small-batch knitwear that removes employment barriers for women. By using artisan techniques to produce versatile, timeless garments, they are able to contribute to the employment of 150-300 female artisans in Peru each year and preserve Andean tradition. The Sleep Shirt is excited to be offering a selection of Bare Knitwear’s Spring 2020 collection online for a limited period of time.

The Mock Neck

Minimal design with contemporary features make the mock neck pullover the ideal piece to dress up or down. The straight sleeves, side slits and relaxed fit lend to easy layering whether thrown over a dress or paired down with denim. They've used a tight tension and all over ribbing to give the sweater structure and weightiness while maintaining the beautiful drape of the garment.

The Travel Wrap

Lightweight voluminous and easy to wear the travel wrap is designed to be the perfect companion whether lounging at home or boarding the plane. Small enough to roll up and pack in a carry on while substantial enough to provide you with all the feelings of substance and refuge. The pre-washed blend of baby alpaca and merino wool has a soft, luxurious hand suitable for those with sensitive skin.

Inspired by the Pacific Northwest, made in Peru

The Marine Cardigan

Inspired by the changing seasons of the Pacific Northwest, the Marine Cardigan is designed to be worn from early Fall into the depth of winter. Hand-loomed rib details pay homage to vintage fishermen sweaters while adding interest, texture and volume to the lightweight, everyday staple. Available in two colours, taupe and grey.
