Conniption is an active inspired line of knit separates. Conniption features interesting design lines, color blocking, and functional but interesting zipper placement. The line is intended to be mixed and matched, as the wearer would like, within an existing wardrobe. It does provide function for active wear usage – specifically with the inclusion of pockets in the leggings. The bottoms and hoodie are made of a wool/lycra blend, making them ideal for active wear since wool is a wicking fabric. It can also be worn as parts of a post-workout outfit, or just everyday attire.
