#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 MACHINE KNITTING

ALPACA & BLENDS

The PUNA, QUECHUA and CHALA Collections include classic and fantasy yarns in pure Alpaca as well as blends with cashmere, silk, fine wools such as merino, linen, tencel, polyamides and acrylics, among others. Our aim is to change fashion for style, and by style we mean by providing yarns of the highest quality, both classic and fantasy, so that designers can create knits which are unique and luxurious.
