Recycled Cotton Animal Stoles

For Ana, your friend who recently joined PETA but who is having a hard time giving up her furry winter gear: Wow … talk about faux fur. These whimsical and totally comfy fox and raccoon stoles (sold separately for $28) from Green 3 are handmade in upstate New York from yarn spun from textile industry leftovers that otherwise would have been discarded. For a completely head-turning look, consider these mittens and winter caps also made from recycled cotton.
