A Good old roll neck knit top with a few extra plus points

  1. This roll neck is knitted in Bolivia, the home of the Llama.  Llama fiber is soft, warm, light, and long-lasting. This luxurious and appealing fiber comes from the llama, a camelid native of the South American Andes region. The llama is the sweetheart of the Bolivian Andes, with around 65% of the world’s llamas living in this country. Thanks to a technological innovation implemented and patented by my suppliers, they are the only suppliers of the very finest dehaired llama fiber: the precious cashllama. Today, over 90% of their production is in babyllama, cashllama, or llama fiber blends. The demand for this noble fiber comes as no surprise given its advantages: it is soft to the touch and does not shed, it is naturally glossy and exists in an array of natural colors, it is naturally hypoallergenic and non-flammable, absorbs little humidity, and is thermally insulating, elastic and strong. Llama fiber is harvested with minimum effects on the environment or the animal itself, and, the sale of llama fiber is the main source of income for many families in the Bolivian highlands.

  2. The geometric knit pattern of this roll neck is inspired by the intricate pyramidal interwoven detailing found on an Egyptian mummy that probably lived between 305 BC to 30 BC in Ancient Egypt. They aren’t sure of his name, but believe that it’s either Pachery or Nenu. Royalty, I say.

  3. The roll neck is reversible. The front could be the back and the back, the front!

  4. Comes in 2 colour ways. BLACK and GREEN. Sizes: S/M/L/XL
