Recycling cashmere

At Tricot, we believe in a better way to create garments. We recycle cashmere sweaters and reuse surplus fibers to be destroy to spin our yarn.

Discover our full process in this page. From the recycling to the full process of creating beautiful and sustainable sweaters. 

First our manufacturer in Prato, a neighboring city to Florence collects cashmere sweaters from italian brands stocks. The sweaters are classified by colors and then the recycling process can start. The sweaters are grinded to become only fibers. We assess the fibers and only keep the very best and most durable.

Then, we create a blend of sold and new virgin fibers from cashmere goats raised in Mongolia: this blend makes for both durable and soft yarns.

What are the 3 yarns?

The 3 yarns correspond to the quality and strength of the stitch. A sweater knitted with 3 threads is more resistant than a Cashmere with 2 threads!

At Tricot, our workshops hand select the strongest yarns to create strong and durable sweaters, which avoid pilling and possible damage caused by time.
