Of course everyone will say Burberry did it first, but eco-fashionistas know better: blanket wraps have always been as warm as an old friend’s hug and make a bold statement. And here’s the proof: a few amazing sustainable brands that did the blanket wraps for winter long before Christopher Bailey got the idea.

 

Arlette Lee is evangelical about Alpaca, claiming that it keeps us warm in the winter and cool in the summer, and doesn’t pill like cashmere tends to do. She makes elegant Ruanas–a kind of cape/coat hybrid–from the material. Her designs look wonderful belted or worn loose, and are perfect for both elegant evenings out, or slung over a tee shirt and jeans
