Recycled Cotton Jeans Sweater Woman Grazia3° generation
The Grazia women's sweater in recycled cotton is made with a yarn obtained from old jeans. A lightweight cotton sweater with a wraparound neck, which is perfect for summer evenings and mid-season. The recycled yarn gives the jeans jersey a slightly knickerbocker effect, plain but with different coloured dots.
COMPOSITION: 80% recycled denim cotton, 15% natural cotton and 5% other fibers. What are other fibers? The yarn that comes from old recycled garments hems and other finishes but cannot be traced. The rib and the sleeves are strengthen with a minimum part of lycra to keep their shape at best.
WASHING CARE: The denim yarn of our sweaters behaves similarly to that of classic trousers. After a few times that you wear it, you can bring it back to the original fit by washing it at 30 °. If you decide to wash it by hand, firstly make a light centrifuge to drain the water, then dry it in a natural way by lying it on a horizontal plane: this yarn is very subject to stretching due to the weight of water.
The Grazia recycled jeans sweater is knitted by Lena and Bruno, who are located 10 km from our show room, with a denim yarn recycled in Prato.
The recycled cotton yarn from old jeans we use is RCS (Recycled Claim Standard) certified, this guarantees its traceability and sustainability.

Grazia jeans sweater
The denim sweater, made in an ethical and sustainable way, is perfect for the spring and summer period. Color Blue 100% natural Denim: from jeans of the same color we obtain a recycled yarn without using dyes or chemicals.
How to wear it
The Grazia cotton denim sweater is fresh and perfect for spring but also for the evening by the sea in summer, when a cool breeze caresses the shoulders. Its round neckline makes it feminine and suitable to be worn over other garments.
Grazia was our first jeans sweater, it is a truly versatile basic garment suitable for all ages, as it can be worn for an elegant, but also sporty look.
How it was made
The Grazia round neck sweater is made from denim fabrics transformed into a new yarn.
Its composition is 80% recycled cotton, 15% virgin cotton and 5% other fibers.
Rifò jeans sweaters are almost unique pieces and cover all shades of blue, because no further industrial dyes have been used to make it, and the colors come directly from the old pair of jeans.
To make every denim sweater about five pairs of old jeans have been recycled. Furthermore only 80 liters of water were used against the 3000 required by an identical virgin cotton garment: a 97% reduction in water consumption, 77% reduction of energy and the and 95% of CO2 emissions.
Who made it
Rifò recycled jeans sweaters are truly 0 km. They are made by Lena and Bruno, in their family lab about 12 km from us.
Their knitwear is now specialized in the use of recycled yarns. Even if they occasionally drive them crazy, they are a great satisfaction for them.
