Alpaca & wool blend
December 30th, 2019
Alpaca specialists are mostly located in Peru. The mill with which we collaborate has a long-term commitment to environment and respecting nature; and it offers a selection of undyed fibers. The different shades are the result of the wool's natural color: different breeds will yield specific tones, but others can also be created by the mill by mixing contrasting fibers together. Brown and cream yarns, for example, can produce greyish tones once blended together.
The alpaca wool used for the sweaters in our autumn-winter collection Edition is blended with wool fibers sourced from the Andes, which gives them a slightly rustic edge. Some of our pieces are dyed - this season’s colors are deep navy and honey yellow - but others have kept their natural hue. One of them is a brown sweater knitted by Maglificio T.G. Di Traversi, a knitwear specialist since 1977 based in Castel San Giovanni in Italie. All our undyed garments are signaled by the “Undyed” icon on their product page.
The Ampo Provençal print is developed by Les Olivades, a family-owned textile printing company located in the area of Avignon. The atelier, created in 1818, continues to perpetuate the traditional know-how of textile printing in the south of France. The rich history of the printing works, is marked by the acquisition of the company by the current president's grandfather in the post-World War II period.Read →
