Retrosaria – Mungo


Mungo is a real feel-good yarn as it is made entirely out of recycled fibres. More specifically it is spun from pre-consumer waste generated by Portuguese and Spanish spinning mills. The blend is 50% cotton and 50% wool and feels like a good summer base. This worsted weight holds textures well and would work a treat with light jumpers and cardigans. Colours are heathered or marled. A great option to give depth to a plain stockinette pattern.
