I’m new to wearing organic cotton clothing and honestly; I don’t usually go in search of anything natural when shopping even though I really should. I know that its essential for the health of the planet and that I should be living sustainably for the future of our environment, but I’ve often found organic products, in general, to be more expensive. A lousy excuse, I know.
While on a trip to Denver Colorado I was introduced to the Pact Organic Clothing Company and was encouraged to try their product out, what I found was that shopping organically wasn’t as expensive as I initially thought it was!

Pact Organic Clothing Review
Women’s Charcoal Heather Stripe Slouchy Fit Sweatshirt
I wanted something specifically casual and comfortable but with style and this charcoal and heather stripe design indeed is better than your ordinary sweatshirt.
Be warned that the style really is slouchy, so if that is not your style preference then you may wish to avoid this item. That being said, I did purposely put the sweatshirt in a hot dryer to shrink it slightly, and I prefer the way it fits now that it’s a bit smaller and more suited to my petite height.
I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that when I showed it to my husband Ray after it came out of the wash and dryer that when he touched it, he asked if it was cashmere. Yes, it is that super soft!
I’ve been wearing my new Slouchy Fit Sweatshirt in the house and around town, but I intend to wear this for long distance flying or road trips when I want something warm, loose and comfortable with a bit of style.
Women’s Clear Blue Heather V-Neck Tee
The thing that drew me to this V-Neck Tee was the blue colour. Not too bright a shade of blue, but not a dull shade of blue either, it’s pretty, and I think it would be suitable for all skin tones.
I had thought that the neckline was a bit low cut when I first tried it on but the more I wear it, the less I’m aware of the deep V of the neckline.
What I especially love about this little t-shirt is the softness of the fabric against my skin and the quality of the construction. It’s super comfortable and easy to wear. I also love that it isn’t too short – it has a nice length to it to cover your behind and so that you don’t have to worry about it riding up when you bend over and exposing your back.
Women’s Black Lightweight Wrap Cardigan
I think this is my new favourite wear anywhere cardigan.
It’s super soft like the other Pact Clothing items, but the Modal in the fabric gives the cardigan some stretch and a bit of a “finish” for lack of a better word making it suitable for when you are playing dress-up. Modal fabric is also said to be resistant to shrinkage and to hold dye more efficiently, which is an excellent thing when you are dealing with any piece of cotton clothing that is the colour black.
The sleeves are meant to fit snug and sleek, and the back of the cardigan hangs down long enough to provide coverage.
Women’s Black Cropped Leggings
Opening the package, I thought, “hmm, these leggings look extremely small”. But in reality, the fit is perfect. These leggings are very comfortable, cosy and great for travel because they are light, pack small, and are wearable in multiple situations.
One thing I do like is that the waistband on the leggings is quite thick (about 2 inches) and great for holding your belly in after you eat too many doughnuts
The fabric of the leggings does have a lot of stretch to it, and a slight sheen to the finish makes the leggings very wearable for more than just the gym. You could wear the leggings under a long top, or under a short fashion-forward dress for a dressier occasion.
My favourite new outfit right now is to pair the cropped leggings with the lightweight wrap cardigan and the v-neck t-shirt — they make the perfect combination when worn together.
