As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches so making color matches can be challenging. My two fabric weights often emerge from the dye bath with subtly different shading. Though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they still look great together.

When ordering, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. If I don't have it in stock, I can often match garment shades using fabric from the same dye bath. If I need extra time to cut and sew, I’ll let you know when to expect delivery.

If you are comfortable with garments having similar (but not necessarily exact) shades, there's no need to check the box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

Your size/color not in stock? If I have the fabric, I can make it to order. Learn more or send me an email to check availability.

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:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. 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.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.

    These Capri pants are very comfortable. They look great in the summer with sandals and in the winter with boots. The fabric is so soft and drapes well.

    The color selection is good. Love the yellow. Would like to have a paprika color option.

    Rose made these special for me. They fit so well!

    I love these clothes. I have several outfits, pants, skirts, and tops, and wear them all regularly. So stylish and so comfortable.

    I forgot to add to my review that I love the pockets! Nice depth to them. I constantly have lip balm with me so nice to have it in a pocket rather than digging through my purse.

    Love these pants!

    Posted by Karen M Kiester on 14th Jun 2019

    I love these pants! I live in Tucson AZ, which is very hot in the summer. These pants are perfect! The crop length is ideal for me. I'm not comfortable in shorts. The fabric is amazing. This is my second pair. I have plum, a delicious yummy color and now bayleaf which is perfect being a "ginger". Both go with so many of my tops.

    Rose, thanks for these great products and "simple yet elegant" styles. I'm looking forward to purchasing a tunic soon!

    Took a chance...

    Posted by Unknown on 11th May 2019

    I took a chance on ordering the cropped pants. Glad I did. I appreciate the quality of sewing/construction and I LOVE the fabric. I am pleased enough with the fit but these pants are high-waisted and I do prefer a waistband that sits lower. Something I hope the designer will consider. If I roll the waistband over once, they are perfect for comfort. I am 5’6” and the length is perfect for cropped pants. I’ll be wearing them often!

    Surprise Fit

    Posted by Hollye on 20th Apr 2019

    Although they haven’t been worn, (the weather turned cold), when they were tried on, they fit! Don’t usually wear elastic waist pants, but these seem to work. They have a more tailored fit which suits me. I will be expanding my wardrobe with more Sympatico pieces. Thank you for a great product.

    Classy crops

    Posted by Paula on 20th Oct 2018

    I love these crops. The straight, rather than tapered, leg is current and flattering and they hit right between my ankle and calf, which is also flattering. I’m not short, 5’8””, but long waisted, so they might be a bit shorter on a woman with longer legs. Either way, all of Sympatico’s clothes are well made in beautiful fabric.

    Very comfortable

    Posted by LMerry1@yahoo.com on 7th Sep 2018

    I mostly buy clothes on consignment.
    However, the Sympatico line is both comfy and elegant and I’ve worn them regularly for more than 10 years. Over time the fabric gets softer and softer.

    With these latest Capri pants I will try not to let them in the dryer and lay them out flat. Even on low heat it does shrink and mis-shape over time.

    The vibrant colors are gorgeous and hard to find elsewhere.

    Good option for short folk

    Posted by Unknown on 4th Sep 2018

    These cropped pants become ankle pants when you are 5' or so. They feel terrific on, with a lovely drape and weight. I already feel as though they will be a temperate weather staple and look forward to seeing how they transition to our Bay Area (California) winter. And oh, yes, they have pockets!
