02. Alma by Carlo Volpi
This colour and textured top a stunning design by Carlo Volpi is knitted using four different yarns: Rowan Summer Tweed (Cotton: 30%, Silk: 70%), Rowan Purelife Revive (Recycled Cotton: 36%, Recycled Silk: 36%, Recycled Viscose: 28%), Rowan Fine Lace (Baby Suri Alpaca: 80%, Merino Wool Fine: 20%) and Rowan Cotton Glacé (Cotton: 100%). It is featuring a scoop neck and crochet details.
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.
