Recycled Cashmere Beanie Umberto1st generation
The Umberto recycled cashmere beanie weighs 70 gr and it is a cuddle for the winter. Its bonnet shape combined with the alternating cables to the purl stitch, makes it soft and rounded. The bottom of the hat is finished with a high rib that allows it to adhere to the head.
COMPOSITION: 95% recycled cashmere, 5% merino wool.
WASHING CARE: We suggest to wash the recycled cashmere garments by hand, to better maintain cashmere's quality. Alternatively you can choose a machine wash at a maximum of 30° with a gentle cycle. If you decide to wash them by hand, do firstly a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry them naturally by lying them on a horizontal surface.
Rifò's recycled cashmere beanies are created in Prato at Daniele's knitting factory, who has been specialising in cashmere accessories for years. The yarn used for Umberto is recycled by the local "Cenciaioli" of Prato.
The recycled cashmere we use is GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified, while the merino wool used is mulesing-free and is RWS (Responsible Wool Standard) certified.

How it was made
Umberto recycled cashmere beanie is made with a pre-loved yarn, because it was born from the regeneration of old clothes that continue to tell their story, despite having taken on a new shape. The old sweaters are in fact selected by color, reduced to fiber and transformed into a new sustainable yarn.
FOREVER SERVICE: If you want to give your Rifò sweater back after two years you can send it back to us and we will recycled it again. You will also receive a coupon to be used on our shop online. Visit the dedicated page for more information.
Selecting old cashmere sweaters by color it is possible to avoid dyeing the recycled yarn again. This mechanical process therefore allows to save many liters of water as well as dyes and chemicals, preserving the water reserves of the planet. Furthermore, unlike virgin cashmere, recycled cashmere avoids the desertification of the Asian highlands where the goats producing the precious wool are intensively bred.
