Sagebrush is a woody and herbaceous plant native to western North America. This aromatic shrub grows in arid and semi-arid conditions throughout a range of cold desert and mountain habitats, such as British Columbia’s Southern Interior. Sagebrush provides food and habitat for a variety of wildlife and was traditionally used as a herbal medicine.

Sagebrush is a textured, oversized cowl that can be worn traditionally or pulled down over your shoulders. This cozy cowl is knit in the round with squishy garter borders and textured, all-over body panel inspired by our local sagebrush.
