We are absolutely smitten with Smitten! A small, family-run company based in Tasmania, Smitten designs and produces fashion and activewear clothing that is sustainable, ethically produced, and practical. The durability and quality of Smitten garments are evident by their use by Tasmanian police search and rescue members and adventurers on Prince Harry’s trek to the South Pole. Their wool is sourced from Tasmanian and Australian sheep, creating super-fine merino wool that is a fantastic natural fiber with wicking, breathable, fast-drying, flame retardant, and UV sun protection properties. Plus it’s machine washable! Everything that we want for our TrailblazerGirl wardrobe. And their Heavyweight Zip Top is a perfect example of a stylish, functional, beautifully made piece of clothing. The 360 gram double knit material will keep us warm in the cold Pacific Northwest winters and the extra high, double weight collar and Smitten signature thumb holes are welcome features for sheltering us from icy winds. We’re crazy about the versatility of this top as it’s equally comfortable on the trails as it is on the town and comes in 3 colors (black, indigo blue, and steel grey).
