In my hunt for something a little more versatile in a yoga pant, my first stop was, of course, the wild, woolly and whimsical world of Etsy.
My only criteria as I began perusing the many beautiful options was that I did not- DID. NOT.- want the typical, black, tight-fitting, lycra tight sort that tends to prevail in the seemingly endless world of yoga drawers.
I am looking for something that I can yoga in. I’m also looking for something to
sleep lounge in. Run errands in. Maybe even dress up and go “out” in.
I found several options, that will inevitably find their way here in future posts, I’m sure. But what struck my eye today, came from the lovely shop of Grateful Threads.
In case you’re wondering, Muladhara or root (foundation) chakra, and is located at the base of the spine, your tail bone and refers to instinct, security, survival and also to basic human potentiality.
These pants are beautiful. I can see them as truly multi-purpose, satisfying my entire wish list, which probably, subconsciously, also included instinct, security, survival and potentiality! I could see easily wearing these on my soccer mom circuit but also, with the right tank and in the right colour- I smell plum or eggplant!- out to the local hot-spot for dinner. I can also see this on my next trip- perfect for hours on the plane and
chowing at Chili’s Too hanging at airports!
The Muladhara Pant is made from a 100% organic cotton/hemp combo that will soften with each wash. They are hand-dyed people, by the hands of Leanna, herself at Grateful Threads. And in a multitude of gorgeous, saturated colours ranging from conservative black to colours like “brazil nut” to “oxblood red”.
I wubs that I found these pants… and just in time for Mother’s Day!
Thank you Grateful Threads!
