Handy Guide for GOGO Sweater Shapes.

Here is a handy guide to all of the GOGO Sweater shapes and silhouettes. Use this guide to help you buy your favourite GOGO and rock it they way you want.

*please note this model is 5’11”

Classic Short Cardi

The Classic Short Cardi is the starting point for all GOGOs. It is short in its length being 21″ and it has a straight body. It is designed to sit at or above the hip, however on some petite frames this style is the perfect length to give you an oversized feel without overwhelming your frame. The arms are straight with a big rib at the cuff to keep the sleeve above your hand.

The general measurements for the Classic Short Cardi are:

Length: 21″
Width (across under arms): 23″
Arms (from shoulder to wrist): 29″


Classic Long Cardi

The Classic Long Cardi is a longer version of the short Cardi. We literally took the short Cardi and added 7″ to the bottom making the total length to 28″. This style is designed to cover your bottom. It is knit straight and will fit closer to the body. Same straight arms and cuff as we see on the short cardi.

The general measurements for the Classic Long Cardi are:

Length: 28″
Width (across under arms): 23″
Arms (from shoulder to wrist): 29″

Buttons: 4

The Short Jacket

You will notice on the Short Jacket that the body and the arms are more exaggerated. The arms are wider and have a large folded cuff and the body is a-line. This sweater was designed to have the cuff worn rolled. This style is great for an effortless coat vibe and you want a pice you can layer over other pieces.

The general measurements for the Short Jacket are:

Length: 24″
Width (across under arms): 28″
Arms (from shoulder to wrist, cuff rolled): 28″


The Long Jacket

Just like the short jacket the Long Jacket has wide sleeves and an a-line body, but 6″ longer. This is an ultimate oversized statement piece. It falls below the bum keeping you super warm and cozy.

The general measurements for the Long Jacket are:

Length: 30″
Width (across under arms): 28″
Arms (from shoulder to wrist, cuff rolled): 28″

Button: 4

A Brief History of Sweaters

Sweaters are a wardrobe staple that have been around for centuries, keeping people warm and stylish through the ages. But did you know that the history of sweaters is just as fascinating as the garments themselves? From hand-knitted to machine-knitted, the evolution of the sweater is a story of innovation, fashion, and technology.

It all started in the 16th century, when fishermen from the British Isles began wearing hand-knitted woolen sweaters to protect themselves from the harsh sea winds. These early sweaters were made by hand, using traditional knitting techniques that had been passed down from generation to generation.

As the popularity of the sweater grew, so did the demand for faster production. This led to the invention of the knitting machine in the 18th century, which revolutionized the way sweaters were made. With the ability to produce sweaters at a faster pace, the machine-knitted sweater quickly became the go-to choice for fashion-conscious consumers.

Steam powered knitting machines of the 18th century.

In the 1920s, the sweater became a fashion statement, thanks to the rise of the jazz age and Hollywood glamour. Suddenly, sweaters were not just practical garments, but a way to express style and personality. From flapper girls in beaded sweaters to dapper gentlemen in argyle patterns, the sweater became an essential part of the modern wardrobe.

But it wasn’t until the 1950s that the sweater truly became an icon of fashion. With the rise of rock and roll and rebellious youth culture, the sweater took on a new life as a symbol of rebellion and individuality. The popularity of the hand-knitted sweater also experienced a resurgence during this time, as young people began to reject mass-produced clothing in favor of more authentic and unique pieces.

Today, sweaters come in all shapes, sizes, and materials, from cozy woolen pullovers to sleek cashmere cardigans. While machine-knitted sweaters dominate the market, hand-knitted sweaters like GOGO are still a beloved tradition preserved among crafters and fashion enthusiasts alike.

The history of sweaters is a fascinating story of innovation, fashion, and culture. From the humble hand-knitted sweater worn by fishermen to the stylish machine-knitted sweaters seen on the streets today, the sweater has come a long way. Whether you prefer the traditional warmth of a hand-knitted sweater or the sleek modernity of a machine-knitted one, there’s no denying that the sweater will always be a beloved and essential part of our wardrobe

Lets GOGO To The Lake

You know the feeling. Pack up the car, putting on that carefully curated road trip playlist, snacks for the way and hitting the open road. Going to the lake, no matter how long it takes to get there, is always a vibe. There is something about being at the lake that is this carefree, lake hair, tinted moisturizer type of feeling. Let’s be real though; hikes, boat rides, friends and sunsets are not the only reason we get excited to head to the lake.

Snacks are not the only thing we packed. The perfectly curated lake wardrobe is half the fun and thats just it, the lake wardrobe is nothing but fun. Sweats, denim shorts, bathing suits and DUH your GOGO sweater are all staples. Dare we even say now more than ever; socks and sandals are also totally accepted. Dad’s wardrobe is our real life Pinterest board. Welcome Birkenstocks, which are now totally a staple. Sorry to those who have been in on the “secret” and are currently rolling their eyes because they have always rocked the stocks. For those who take the lux brick road, they can even go a step further and velcro on a pair of chic Chanel dad sandals. I mean even look at your average cooler that got a major overhaul. Yes, I said cooler! The once textured hard plastic, matrix like grid lid (that your parents probably still have somewhere in the basement), “retro 90’s” cooler (just aged a few of us) got a major overhaul. The new era of chic coolers, because I mean how else are you going to transport your Whispering Angel Rosé, is here. Having a Yeti is like rocking a Louis Vuitton Neverfull at the lake. 

Just like Yeti, where the colours and options are endless, GOGO LITERALLY has a sweater for every adventure you may have at the lake. Car ride up to the lake, check. Sitting by the fire, obviously marshmallows in hand, check. Boat sweater, check check. Plus now the Lake Girl comes in not only our classic wool but GOGO’s new buttery soft cotton but also the new Jersey knit. 

Pack your GOGO Sweater, bucket hat, bathing suit and your swan float. Vibrant hues of blue waters are calling!

Washing and Care

When it comes to washing a knit sweater it can come off as a daunting task. Most of our prized possession’s come with a one way ticket to the dry cleaners which for most is easy and convenient. In today’s fast paced way of life where everything seems to be just a click away, it sometimes takes simple, dare we say “old school” tasks like hand washing our favourite knit’s to let us take a moment and appreciate what’s in front of us. I mean we aren’t saying you need go to post up a line and order wooden clothes pins off of amazon to wash your knits, queue Fiddler on the Roof; Matchmaker. 

When shampoo was just shampoo for your hair and soap was just square bar, we now welcome the age of beautiful home products that make you want to show off your once hidden laundry room. The laundry room has now become the Bali of hot destinations on the house tour.

Enter The Laundress. At GOGO we are so obsessed with our knits so why not use the best when it comes to care. We suggest using The Wool & Cashmere Shampoo to keep your favourite sweaters fresh and lasting longer, think of it as sending your GOGO to the spa. Keep in mind you shouldn’t have the need to wash your sweater too often and before you say gross, wool has something called lanolin oil present which is actually naturally anti-microbial.

We have made a video; no not TikTok’s Renegade challenge, we will save you from our dance skills but an equally important video on how to wash your GOGO.

For those of you that are still avid readers, here are our step by step instructions laid out, just like how you should lay out your sweater to dry (wink wink).

Please don’t machine wash your sweater. As much as we love the convenience of our washing machine and how far they have come, we ask that if needed please wash by hand. We suggest cold water and a bit of liquid detergent in a bath/sink, treat wool like you treat your hair, use your hands to gently massage and wash your GOGO. DO NOT LEAVE TO SOAK FOR HOURS AS THE COLOUR CAN TRANSFER. Immediately take out of the water and squeeze but do not ring. Lay flat on a dry towel and roll your sweater in the towel to remove excess water. We suggest the cinnamon bun method (think of a cinnamon bun log before it’s cut into individual buns). Once you have removed as much moisture out as possible, unroll and move to a new, dry towel and lay flat to dry. If spot treatment is needed please use a recommended spot remover for wool or cashmere. When you are not wearing your GOGO Sweater which we know is hard not to, store your sweater folded or laying flat, do not hang as we don’t want your favourite sweater to stretch out.

Broccoli Sprouts


I love Dr. Rhonda Patrick! I first learned of her listening to a Joe Rogan Podcast.  She reports A LOT about the health benefits of Sulforaphane which is richly found in Broccoli Sprouts.  Watch the video below to learn in detail why these little sprouts are so good at combating cancer/age.

If you found this video interesting you also might find her video on how to make the most out of broccoli sprouts and how to increase their health benefits even more by heating the sprouts to 70 degrees for 10 mins ! Check out the video below.

Finally you don’t have to break the bank buying Broccoli Sprouts at the store. The ones I have been buying are $4.99 for a small box! It is VERY easy to grow your own broccoli sprouts at home which I am going to start doing today. See the easy to follow video below.

Here are the convenient purchase links for you. If you purchase using these links, I will make a small commission. I appreciate it!

I hope you found this interesting.  It’s important that we do everything we can to improve our health and say fit so we can enjoy the mountains and the snow for many years!





When most people hear MOON BOOTS they think of the 70s.  The chubby foam boots were super popular in the 1970s and have made a continuous comeback, seen on Snow Babes all over the world.

I have loved Moon Boots for many years. My mum sold them in her store Mountain Magic Sportswear in Banff. I always had a pair growing up. They are by far the warmest boots I have ever owned. They have a nice stacked sole that raises you up a good inch off the ground. As well, they are lined with cushy foam making them super comfy.  They come in a ton of colours and make your feet look small.

Some people think Moon Boots are only for glitzy SNOW BABES but you can make them look pretty cool and down to earth if you balance them out with a classic jacket. Make sure to have either fitted pants to tuck inside the boots or a very wide leg pant that doesn’t touch the boot. A regular flare pant that fits tight next to the boot will only end up looking strange.

BABE TIP: Moon Boots group their sizes because of the foam 35-38, 39-41. I recommend buying them comfortably snug. I’m an 8.5 US and always buy the 35-38 size. The foam will compact and get very loose if you buy them to fit.

Check out some of the ways to wear Moon Boots and find the style that best suits you!

Why I started The Snow Babe.


7 years ago before I left my small home town of Banff for Toronto, Canada the phrase “Snow Babe” popped into my brain. It started as a design for my knitwear line GOGO Sweaters, but now, several years later I feel it also is a phrase that describes a lifestyle and an attitude around mountain culture. More specifically this attitude from a female perspective.

I want The Snow Babe blog to be a place where woman can go to get inspiration about mountain life and find out what is new and hot or even what is classic about time spent in the mountains.

I want to hear your stories, your favourite places, products and share our experiences. Make sure to tag #thesnowbabe on your social sites so we can follow along.

I look forward to this new endeavour and how it can bring we Snow Babes together.
