The V Strap Knit Top is knit with a thick cotton yarn in a miniature ribbed pattern. It’s insanely comfortable, with a thicker feel and dressier look than our regular cotton spandex fabric.
This top can easily be dressed up or down and works in just about any setting.
Katya is 5’8 and wears an S. This ribbed top is extra elastic and we recommend ordering one size down.
Due to the weight of this garment, we recommend folding rather than hanging this style.
Fully Fashioned is the term used to describe the process in which each garment is shaped using special stitches that make lines and loops that either shrink or grow depending on where more length is needed, similar to the process of hand knitting but done by a knitting machine for commercial purposes. During this knitting process each individual piece of the garment is knit so that it is made with no extra fabric, eliminating waste. At the end of the knitting process each piece is linked together. The linking machine requires a skilled human operator, a dying art due to skills not being passed down to new generations. The operator is in charge of manually loading all of the knitted loops onto the machine for linking, a process that takes a lot of time and patience. Labor costs are higher but yarn wastage is low and each garment emulates the craft process of a hand knit garment. Being in LA , where rents and wages are much higher than overseas competitors has resulted in the dwindling workforce of the domestic knitting industry. We hope that with your purchase of our fully fashioned knit pieces that we can continue to support this art domestically.
