better then cool, ‘these days’ is warm. Built from the collision of 3 bands of different wool and knit, this scarf is a striking object. It is also a smart one. The shortest band in a bold rib hand-knit snuggles subtly around your neck and shoulder. The middle band is a warm gesture of comfort, surrounding your head and ears and back of your neck to shelter you from the cold. the third band folds back onto your head and keeps the whole composition in place. a statement in comfort and effortless style. knit is 100% waste free.
i designed knitwear because i wanted to work with Solid Crafts. that is how much i believe in the long term effect of this company. they bring education and work to vulnerable women in Peru by re-introducing their heritage knitting skills. to wear this knit is to help another women evolve in life. Solid’s profits are used to further develop the local community helping them support teen moms and focus on selfdevelopment.
it takes Solid Crafts and us 4-8 weeks to process your order. we choose not to have stock in order to avoid waste of natural and human resources.
caravelli brushed is a baby alpaca and nylon blend. this soft durable fibre is naturally hypoallergenic. we chose to work with the finest machine knit this factory can make and see what creativity emerges from it. a well balanced production chain is a healthy production chain and it keeps the women at work on a regular basis. this makes all the difference between a life in poverty or options from education and health. between growth or stagnation. all this goodness in just 1 sweater. we love alpacas because they are living proof that brains and beauty can be united. a true miss universe fighting for environmental world peace kept for future generations.
to remove smell from knit, lay flat on fresh towel to air. wash on delicate cycle using biodegradable mild detergent. lay flat to dry. to remove wrinkles lay flat in steamy bathroom. dry away from direct heat or sunlight. store with repellent. plan your wardrobe and consider repairing, swapping or upcycling your items when no longer in use. this gender-free collection is easier to share or swap.
