#andeanheritage

Art, culture and colourful Andean landscapes are the source of inspiration for the Michell Yarn Collection. This season we focus on contemplating the rich Peruvian textile tradition, which goes back more than 5,000 years and remains latent today.

 

Michell, through its Art Contest, values and promotes the spread of ancestral techniques which have inspired us to create 3 new lines of yarns in an effort to recreate and transmit our Andean textile heritage - Puna, Quechua & Chala.

 

We invite you to discover and enjoy our new Michell Yarns.

OVERVIEW HAND KNITTING

ALPACA & BLENDS

The collection of yarns for Hand Knitting has been created as a result of an exhaustive study of hand knitting tendencies around the world, combining special yarn structures and resulting in an innovative selection of yarns. However, this proposal can always be modified and personalised in accordance with specific requirements regarding blends, counts and presentations from each client.
