The Sex and the City actress just gave a small knitwear business a major shout-out—and you’re going to want to wear its cozy hats and wraps all fall and winter long.

As temperatures drop to a more tolerable range (at least in parts of the country), you’re probably looking for that just-right jacket, shawl, blanket scarf, or what-have-you to keep those early fall chills away.

Sarah Jessica Parker—actress, shoe designer, wedding line creator, and more—already has hers picked out and, no surprise here, it’s gorgeous. The former Sex and the City star recently posted about the Pardy Wrap (To buy: $185, shitthatiknit.com) from Sh*t That I Knit, a Boston-based knitwear company, on Instagram, writing, “I will be warm and grateful forever and in my favorite color.”

 

The Pardy Wrap is currently available in five colors, with three more shades currently available for pre-order. Each wrap is priced at $185—on the expensive side, sure. But each pom pom–festooned wrap is made with 100 percent Peruvian Baby Alpaca and made by Sh*t That I Knit’s team in Peru using manual knitting machines, so you can be confident that your purchase is both durable and supportive of local artisans. (Plus, you know, pretty.)

The alpaca wool used for the wraps is specially chosen to make wearers warm, but not hot, so you can strike the perfect comfort balance. The wrap can also be worn as a shoulder wrap or as a scarf, so it really can be your go-to this fall and winter.

In addition to the wraps, Sh*t That I Knit sells hats for men, women, and infants and men’s neckties. All items are made with hand-dyed Peruvian merino wool, alpaca, or cashmere. The company also works with partners to donate knitting kits to young adults fighting cancer, citing the stress and anxiety–reducing capabilities of the activity. (They call the program Give-A-Sh*t Knit Kits, which is totally in line with the company’s playful, slightly bawdy vibe.)

Sarah Jessica Parker praised the Pardy Wrap for its comfort, but she also acknowledged Sh*t That I Knit’s “great and good work” and celebrated the fact that it’s a women-owned business. She also pointed out that the wrap makes a great gift for those gifted with planning ahead—a great reminder for all of us to get moving on those holiday shopping lists.
