Personality Characteristics of Hand-Knit Sweaters

I was excited to make this word cloud that represents personality descriptions of hand-knit sweaters (cashmere, alpaca, wool). It is based on responses from 200 women in New York.

It is great to consider the different words people use to describe a sweater as it if were a real human being with a personality. It’s not something we usually consider with clothes even though we wear them nearly everywhere we go.

What personality characteristics would you give to your favorite piece of clothing if it was a person?
