How to Upcycle Your Cashmere Jumper
A cashmere jumper can have a second life!
We've all been there... you shrink your favourite jumper in the wash, or you snag it and make a hole, or the dreaded moths decide to have a feast at your expense. When you've invested in a cashmere jumper, that you've grown to love and cherish, this can be an excruciating event and very upsetting when it happens! But fear not, you needn't throw it away. We've been working with Faith Hats since the brand Tallis began, upcycling cashmere sweaters to make into new, gorgeous hats that are guaranteed to keep you warm all winter.
Making hats is just one of the ways you can upcycle your jumper, by finding a pattern online and dusting off your sewing machine, you can give it a go and create something new. And why stop there? Why not try making gloves, using the sleeves of the jumper as the cuff? You can breathe new life in to your beloved pullover, letting it live on to see another winter.
Not confident enough to do it yourself?
We know that not everyone will feel confident enough to take to their jumper with scissors and that's understandable. As part of our #ForeverTallis promise, we offer a service where you can send us your jumper and we will transform it in to a beanie or beret for you. All you need to do is choose the style of hat from our range and then fill out our online form detailing your style choices and post us the jumper. It's as easy as that!
So, whether you decide to upcycle your cashmere jumper into a hat (or anything else!) yourself, or if you call upon the help of the Tallis team, well done for taking the opportunity to reuse your clothes, keeping the fabric alive and avoiding waste.

Did you know that 60% of the clothes worn worldwide are made with some form of plastic? Man-made fibres such as polyester, nylon and acrylic are a product of crude oil. Clothes made from them will often end up in landfill where they will sit for 1000s of years.
