Fog Linen - simple linen dresses, pants, shirts, socks, and sun-hats! These quality garments are designed in Japan and made in Lithuania from beautiful Lithuanian linen. The clothes are one size and mostly for those with a smaller frame. Fog linen also makes linen items for the table and kitchen, which you can find in other Vancouver stores!

We have had a bit of a discussion on Facebook about the pleasures of shaving pills off sweaters, as a way of passing time as we wait for warmer weather. Pills are hard to avoid --unless the natural characteristics of the wool fibre have been changed. The use of a purse other than smooth leather can create a cluster of pills. Washing your sweater can help to almalgamate the fibres reducing the tenancy to pill, but when all goes to pill, just shave 'em off! There are all kinds of pill shavers available at a variety of prices.
Bright colourful cotton scarves have arrived from Anokhi. I picked up some wool/silk scarves in light colours from Asia Eye last weekend when in Bellevue. Some amazing Danish shawls in pink & red (wow!) are very slowly making their way from the customs office in Ontario, to Vancouver.
