Hand knitted with recyled and vinatge wool

Cropped tank style vest

 

The Franzi Vest was designed as the perfect thin weighted knitted tank for those in between weather says. Can be worn layered over your fav baby tee or as is on its lonesome.

 

It’s knitted from my large stash of merino, wool and alpaca ends, so its fuzzy and warm as well as breathable when you get stuck in a nice sunny spot!

 

Because the materials used to make the Franzi Vest are knitted from recyled ends from commission pieces, little bits I find at op shops and vintage yarn, you can feel relieved that this little beauty isn’t contributing to our never ending fashion cycle. Making something out of materials that so often just get thrown away!!

ALSO, it's designed to last lifetimes (and be passed down) , a future heirloom if you will. 

I'd say that pretty great for our sustainable footprint if you ask me!
