winter is here and it’s time to pull out your warmest goods, put on your rain boots and represent the season in style!
sure, summer has its perks but there’s just something special about curling up in your favourite knitted garments to beat the outside chill. whether it’s a chunky scarf, your favourite beanie or heavy knit jumper, cosy knits are a seasonal staple.
most importantly, we love winter because we get to show off our unique ameco yarn knitwear while giving back to the community.
what is ameco yarn?
soft, warm and sustainable ameco yarn is the perfect blend of alpaca, zq merino wool and cotton. our ameco yarn is fully traceable back to its source and spun locally before being crafted into forever knits in our tāmaki makaurau workroom.
we use 4 and 7 gauge machines to create comfortable, perfect-for-winter chunky knits like the fisherman's snood or jumper that are so cosy it almost feels like you’re wearing a loving hug. just like nature, our garments are made to work together.
more for winter
while we adore our ameco fibre, our team of designers also lovingly craft a wardrobe of classic garments from a variety of ethically sourced fibres, such as -
the perfect blend of seasons, merino wool is the ideal combination of breathable and warm. soft to the touch, durable and perfectly balanced for everyday wear.
as we like to say, quality over quantity, especially when it comes to cashmere, sourced from an italian mill in smirra, these fibres are selected for their warmth, softness and durability.
a unique blend of possum down, zq merino and mulberry silk, this fibre celebrates our unique aotearoa kiwi heritage. light but warm and elegantly soft and durable to last a lifetime.
our sustainable fashion promise
care for life
renew. reuse. repurpose - this is our motto for everything we produce.
we ensure that every step of our journey is considered and sustainable, even after a garment leave us.
you can send any standard issue garment back to be repaired or repurposed. depending on the condition that we receive it in, we work with you to establish the next step which can be anything from repairing the damage to trading it in for something else.
care for others | jumper for jumper program
in addition to doing our part for the planet, we try just as hard to support the communities around us. we remember that not everyone is blessed with warm clothing, a steady meal or a warm home - and for those, winter is the toughest time of the year.
the standard issue jumper for jumper program means that every ameco jumper purchased online or in store, we gift a woollen jumper to a child in need. in partnership with the middlemore foundation, we work with local communities to identify vulnerable people who would benefit from receiving a warm, cosy jumper this winter.
