The Recycled Cashmere Sweater Carolina
How to wear it
Carolina is a slightly boxy and super comfortable recycled cashmere sweater. With its short length you can use it for many occasions. The rich ribbed collar makes it an enveloping and a warm garment to face the winter.
How it was made
The Carolina 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.

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).
