MICHELL ALPACA & BLENDS YARNS
COLLECTION A/W 17-18
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.
WE INVITE YOU TO DISCOVER AND ENJOY OUR NEW MICHELL YARNS.
For this new season, Michell presents its new collection of yarns specially designed for weaving and/or industrial knitting.
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.
Is it possible to obtain a fibre which does not come at the expense of our environment? The answer is Alpaca and you can be part of it.
Our passion for providing the very best in client service has allowed us to offer a wide variety of yarns under the Stock Service Peru in which 8 qualities are currently on offer in a comprehensive range of classical and fashionable colours.
Embarked on an initiative which will contribute to the economic growth of those highland communities involved in Alpaca breeding and the diffusion of this rich millenial Andean hand-spinning textile tradition.
WELLCOME TO MICHELL
PIONEERS AND LEADERS IN THE
ALPACA INDUSTRY IN PERU
With more than 85 years experience and know-how in the processing of Alpaca fibre, Michell & Cia. is today a pioneer and the leading Alpaca tops and yarns producer and exporter in the world.
Frank W. Michell founded Michell & Cía. in 1931, dedicated to the purchase, classification and commercialisation of Alpaca and wool. Totally identified with Alpaca, his intention was to bring the qualities of this singular Andean product to the attention of the rest of the world.
TREASURE OF THE ANDES
Alpacas (lama pacos) are one of the most beautiful South American camelids. Related to the Llamas, Guanacos and Vicuñas, the Alpaca has been valued for its fibre since pre-Incan times due to the properties and quality of its hair. There are two main species of Alpaca: the Huacayo y Suri.
