INTRODUCING RECLAIMED CASHMERE
We are thrilled to introduce Reclaimed Cashmere for Winter 2017. This collection helps to reduce clothing waste by recycling unworn cashmere sweaters into brand new garments.
The Reclaimed process begins in Tuscany at a family-owned mill where artisans sort through unworn cashmere sweaters to select the highest quality knits.
The sweaters have their linking removed and are cut into separate panels. The panels are then shredded into fiber form by a 100 year old machine and stripped of their original color.
Next, the cashmere fibers are re-dyed and re-spun into yarn that will soon become one of the 4 styles in this collection.
The crewneck and funnelneck are knitted in a thicker-gauge yarn for comfort and warmth. The unisex beanie has a rolled edge and can be worn slouchy or cuffed. The oversized travel blanket is knitted in a dense, half-milano stitch and thoughtfully finished with a tubular border.
