WHAT’S HER STORY?
Super soft. Super squishy. And now, upcycled. Meet the limited-edition “waste not, want not” sister to our bestselling Alpachino Merino. Made entirely from production offcuts, she turns would-be waste into gorgeous new yarn – complete with unique flecks in each rich-toned colour, all thanks to the bespoke process of gathering and sorting the leftover materials.
Please note: Due to the upcycled nature of this yarn, every colour is unique and available in only very limited quantities. So if you love it, grab it now before it’s gone…
WHAT’S IT LIKE TO KNIT WITH?
Our Upcycled Alpachino Merino has the same weight and tension as the original. Meaning it’s ultra-soft and silky smooth, perfect for beginners as well as more experienced stitchers.
WHAT CAN I MAKE?
As we might have mentioned, it’s super soft. Our Upcycled Alpachino Merino is great for makes big and small – be that cardis and jumpers, or beanies and bandanas.
