Easy, Eco-Friendly Care
Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:
- Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
- We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
- Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
- Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
- If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron. To prevent possible shine from a setting that's too-high, iron inside out.
- When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.
Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

After a lifetime of skirts being either too short or two long for my build (short legs!), finally here is a skirt that fits just right at every angle. Just below the knee so iit doesnt ride up when I sit, and not so long that it has to be hiked up to my armpits in order to achieve the right length. AND the most important and deciding factor...POCKETS that accomodate more than just a lipstick.
I will be buying in more ccolors and exploring other styles soon.
A Classic Skirt
Posted by Sharron Helmholz on 7th Sep 2017
I bought my first 24" flip skirt at an arts and crafts fair, not knowing how much I would love it. I discovered that I could wear it for business meetings or more casual events by choosing different accessories. Since I live in California, I can wear it all year long. It packs well and washes easily. Next time I saw Rose at a crafts fair, I got three more skirts. I should have gotten more!
Good & Not Good

I looked at this skirt and the other products offered here for a long time before finally ordering. I love to support local cottage industries, love the philosophy of the company, love the personal involvement f the founder, and her approach. I was never confident about the sizing and believe I ordered the best size (small). I like the length, style, fabric, waist, and hip fit, but I had to take in the bunchiness of fabric between the waist and hip about an inch in the front and 3/4 inch in the back to allow a normal t-shirt to lie smoothly over it. This is the same issue I had read about in another review before I ordered.
Not soft like tencel

I expected this is to be light and flippy (like the title), but it is fairly stiff. Also, it is quite fitted in the hips and the elastic waist bunches. I would not recommend wearing this with a fitted top.
