In addition to the soft feel, cotton is also a breathable fabric, which means you won’t heat up as much as you would if you were wearing synthetics. Furthermore, cotton doesn’t cause and retain odors like synthetics do. This makes it an excellent choice for your yoga practice, and these cropped leggings with the gather detail at the bottom is one on our best sellers.
These days sustainable fashion is coming into its own. More and more women are coming to realize that the fast fashion industry is one of the biggest environmental polluters. From synthetic fabrics derived from oil to toxic dyes and finishes, main line fashion is far from sustainable. In addition, fast fashion, by its very nature, is designed to wear out quickly, creating a massive amount of waste that isn’t recycled and can’t be composted.
In contrast, Blue Canoe has created a line of comfort clothing using only organically grown fibers that are made in the USA and made to last.
I don’t love them, but I’m keeping them just to see how they hold up. Fit is good (5’1”, 108lbs and bought a small) but they don’t hold me really well- like I feel they might fall down if I do jumping jacks with them on. Plus the but safe after sitting in them. DEFINITELY not worth $100 total for these.
Ordered the medium in black because the blue was unavailable.The black does seem to fade fairly quickly; would recommend adding a cotton panel as with my PACT crops.
When it's warm enough I wear them for walking and just everyday wear.
I don't like itchy, high-tech synthetic fabrics. Had really been searching high and low for something cotton that would breathe. But still have a bit of stretch.
These are the capri leggings I've been looking for - natural material, comfortable, look good with dresses or on their own. Just wish there were more colors!
