10. Felippe by Marie Wallin
This mens sweater a design by Marie Wallin is knitted using 4 shades of Rowan Purelife Revive (Recycled Cotton: 36%, Recycled Silk: 36%, Recycled Viscose: 28%). Two strands of different shades held together forms the stripes. The design is knitted in stockinette stitch.
Purelife Revive is a fully recycled yarn. Therefore this yarn protects the resources of our planet. You need from 7000 litres of water (drip irrigation) up to 30000 litres of water (extensive water utilization) to grow 1 kg of cotton? To clean the cotton from impurities (like oil, fat and shells) you also need a big amount of water.
