Step Inside: Why Our Recycled Cashmere is a Bestseller

by Lucy McMahon |

With the launch of Collection 05, we are very excited to reveal our latest recycled cashmere pieces in all new colours and designs, now available online. 

Following the popularity of our original cashmere collection, we knew we wanted to expand our cashmere styles for Collection 05. Made in London and hand finished, we couldn't be happier with the results. 

So why have these pieces been so popular, and what makes recycled cashmere better for the planet? 

The Yarn 

Re.VerSo™ yarn offers the same quality as virgin cashmere, but with a much smaller carbon footprint. All ReVerso™ yarn is CO2 free, untreated and has been through a Life Cycle Analysis, which identified that regenerated cashmere has a lower environmental impact in all categories analysed compared to virgin cashmere. As an example, each kilogram of Re.Verso uses 92% less water than virgin cashmere.  

Along with the decreased pressure on our natural resources, we also use ReVerso™ yarn, simply because it is irresistibly soft and is the ultimate in cosy comfort.

The Style

We are on a mission to create the building blocks to a sustainable wardrobe, so every piece must stand the test of time. For our cashmere styles that is no different and we wanted to offer classic designs with our signature 'Riley Studio' detail. This season for our Classic crewneck that is a contrasting vertical stripe detail up the sleeve. 

Designing without gender in mind means the sweaters offer a relaxed fit, so you can style them up or down. Perfect for cosy nights in, or out at a business meeting. 

Below, are some of our #KindHumans styling our recycled cashmere pieces to perfection.
