SFF #7-Yala Bamboo Clothing Review and Giveaway!!



When thinking of refreshing my wardrobe, comfort is one of the first things I consider (it's why I often run around in t-shirts). I don't know of any material more comfy than bamboo, so I am thrilled to introduce you to Yala Designs!


Yala sent me the Stella Gown for review; this is made from 95% bamboo, and is absolutely the most cozy nightgown I have ever worn! Although I wear it for a nightgown, it could also probably be used for just lounging around the house on an off day. The Stella gown comes in 2 colors; black and amarinth. I went with the amarinth, which is a beautiful, deep purple color. The gown seems to help you stay cool when it's hot out, and warm when it's cold, so this is definitely not just a warm-weather nightgown! I love the long length of this gown, and the way the fabric moves with you instead of just hanging. 




"It was 1987. We were young - two English teachers living and working in Fujian, China and raising a six-year-old. We were explorers. We didn’t have a lot of money but we had a deep well of curiosity that refreshed us daily. So with open hands and hearts we journeyed near and far, taking trips and treks every weekend we could. We slept on beds without sheets or mattresses, even on the grassy ground a few times. And that’s when the idea came: to nurture and protect us in our unfamiliar sleeping circumstances, we stitched together two well-worn sheets as a clean and comforting liner for wherever we laid our heads. We slept cozy each night dreaming of the next day’s adventure. And every morning awoke, rolled up our “dreamsack”, and started off again.
Those stitched together sheets became the first DreamSack®. And in 1996 we became a family company. Now many years and many ideas and creations later, that same curiosity and care goes into everything we make at Yala. From classics that make sleeping more sumptuous to soft, nurturing layers that provide the simple elegance you crave. They are the clothes you really live your life in."

One of my readers will win a $50.00 gift code to Yala Designs!!
