Lusso Cashmere Blend Yarn in Dune
Knit another beanie set: ‘Lusso’ means ‘luxury’ in Italian and the recycled wool and cashmere blend in this yarn live up to the name. This is an add-on for the Cashmere Knit Beanie and Mittens Workshop, ideal for knitting up the projects in another colorway. Three balls of this luxurious DK weight yarn in a soft sandy colorway is enough to make the beanie and mitt set.
This eco-friendly yarn features recycled cashmere and merino wool and is brought to you through a partnership with a family-run Italian mill. This DK weight yarn is made from recycled cashmere yarn and merino wool fibers, giving existing luxury (but no longer needed) yarns a second life.
Located in the picturesque and historic town of Montemurlo, Italy, Massimo and Carlo Signori have been managing their family mill through several generations of growth. Founded in 1978, their environmentally friendly ethos is evident throughout their custom yarn collections, including Lusso. The story of Lusso is fascinating and inspiring; after collecting salvaged high-end sweaters from around the world, fibers are carefully sorted and organized by color to be brought down to a fiber pulp, blended with man-made polymide for strength and tension, and respun into their original form again. The result is a cozy, sustainable yarn that’s ideal for close contact making it our choice for warm beanies and mittens.
