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.
The recycled cashmere sweater Ada was knitted by Lena in her family workshop just 10 km from us. To make the women's cashmere sweater Ada has been used a yarn 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 to wear it
Ada has a straight, regular fit. The two side braid details frame the body and make the sweater sophisticated. Comfortable and not bulky, Ada also lends itself to a sophisticated and elegant look, perhaps with a nice black wide legs pants and a heel to slim the figure, an effect emphasized by the enveloping and elegant turtleneck.
How it was made
The Ada recycled cashmere sweater 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. Visite 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.
CERTIFICATIONS: Our recycled cashmere wool is certified GRS (Global Recycling Standard) while our merinos wool is mulesing-free and it is certified RWS (Responsible Wool Standard).
Who made it
