Mimungo pullover

price excl. VAT €6.00

This round yoke pullover with 3/4 funnel sleeves, A-line shaped body and asymmetric hem line is worked top down in the round. The yoke, hem and cuffs are decorated with simple cables and slip stitch chains on the background of reverse stockinette stitch. Double knitted bands accentuate transitions between design elements throughout the garment.

Since the yarn it is designed for is made from recycled wool and cotton, its improvised name tells a story of recycling practices in the wool industry. Terms “shoggy” and “mungo” refer to fabrics that were produced from reclaimed wool, cotton or linen.

Mungo yarn from Retrosaria is a mix of wool and cotton, which is entirely spun from pre-consumer waste generated by Portuguese spinning mills. It has a rustic feel and look, and speaks to me as a way to support sustainable practices in the industry.
