More About Upcycling Puno

Sustainability at best!

Puno Upcycling yarn is environmentally sustainable and also comes in a variety of beautiful colours, all made from 100% upcycled fibers. No additional resources are used and even the polyamide is recycled. As you knit, you'll notice the unique blend of colours from these previously wasted but now repurposed fibres.

Puno upcycling is an upcycled version of Gepard Puno.

This gorgeous yarn was used in Anne Ventzl's super popular Super Selene sweater as a main colour along with Gepard Kid Seta (but you can use any other lace Mohair/Silk or Baby Suri Alpaca/Silk. You can also use Camarose Snefnug as a contrast colour as it is a very similar yarn and gauge.
