The Sunglass Sweater

Swaddle Your Sunglasses in Style.

When is the last time your sunglasses made you smile? 

Sunglass Sweaters are making a rare encore appearance at Janery - for a limited time only.

Handcrafted from upcycled, felted wool and reclaimed buttons, these cases protect your sunnies while adding a dash of colorful style to your purse.

These are not gifts for the boring people in your life. They’re for those vibrant women who inspire, uplift, and deserve something more than yet another gift card - though the Sunglass Sweater does do double duty as packaging for a gift card. (This happens to be our favorite meaningful *and* useful gift for teachers).

This Sunglass Sweater is a mid-weight citrus wool, and:

  • Is approximately 7.25” x 3.25” -  the perfect size for most frames
  • Is handcrafted from upcycled, felted wool that would otherwise go to a landfill
  • Features a soft cotton lining
  • Stays secure with a reclaimed button and elastic loop closure
  • Is proud to be ethically made in the USA Gift wrap available, complete with a hand written greeting card

A few fabulously unexpected uses for the Sunglass Sweater:

  • Tuck a gift card inside - Voila! A memorable but also useful teacher gift.
  • Slip a checkbook and pen inside so you’re always ready to pay a bill or babysitter
  • Tuck your smartphone inside to keep it safe and cozy
  • Use them to wrap an artisan chocolate bar for a delicious gift

The Sunglass Sweater is a one-of-a-kind eyeglass case, hand crafted from upcycled, felted wool, reclaimed buttons, and colorful fabrics. These fun and funky cases were one of the most popular gifts I made when Janery was born 7 years ago. 

These are a true labor of love for me. From saving clothing from a landfill, to the puzzle of figuring out how to get the most usable fabric from them, to matching up vibrant quilting cottons - and then pairing it all with a reclaimed button - I absolutely adore making these Sunglass Sweaters.

Due to their handmade, upcycled nature, Sunglass Sweaters are perfectly imperfect. The wool may be a little quirky, the shape is sometimes just short of symmetrical.  Pattern placement, button and elastic closure colors may vary.

Gift wrap is available here! Let us save you time - add gift wrapping, and we’ll lovingly wrap your Sunglass Sweater and top it off by hand writing your message inside a holiday card designed by a local artist.

*Due to the time-intensive handmade nature of this item, I regret that discounts and coupons do not apply to Sunglass Sweaters. Thank you for understanding!
