At Kingly we’re always looking for an opportunity to make our products more environmentally friendly. In early 2020 we did it with knitted socks and won the 2020 Promotional Gift Award for our Upcycled Socks in Compostable Bags.
Now we’re doing the same with sweaters using upcycled cotton.
Kingly are proud to introduce eco-sustainable knitted sweaters that we know will be a hit. We’re proud to use upcycled cotton to deliver fashionable clothing that makes the most of available resources and helps you maintain your own environmental credentials.
What is upcycling?
Upcycled yarn is derived from used clothing and pattern cutting scraps from garment production. The upcycling process is mechanical. No water, dyes or chemicals are used and the production process is near zero C02 and 50% solar powered factory.
With recycled textiles, waste is still subjected to a new manufacturing process using water, dyes and chemicals. Recycling is better than throwing away. But Upcycled Cotton has a significantly lower impact on the environment and we’re proud to be part of the movement to be gentler on our planet.
Upcycled cotton is readily available in up to 20 colours. We can produce other colours upon request.
All our sweaters are full custom knitted, meaning you can choose the sizes that best suit your needs.
We offer 3 premium quality compositions:
- Cotton 50% / acrylic 50%
- Merino wool 50% / acrylic 50%.
- 50% Upcycled Cotton / 50% acrylic
They are available in different thicknesses from 3GG to 12GG.
Look – no piling! Have you ever had the misfortune to buy great-looking sweaters, only to see them shrink, pile and become hard to the touch after the first wash? Well, with Kingly that won’t happen! Under normal conditions, and following care instructions, our sweaters will not shrink in the wash, nor will they suffer from piling; and they will remain soft as ever!
The minimum quantity per design is from only 150 units. Production lead times are 4 weeks plus shipping.
Once an order is received, we prepare the knitting program whilst we wait for the yarn to arrive. We then proceed with knitting a sample so we can send photos by email for approval. Once confirmed, we proceed with production and shipping.
To us, quality is everything – it’s our passion. A fact that’s proven by the popularity of these products. They’re comfortable, good quality and long lasting, and our clients come back year after year with new design ideas to keep us on our toes!
