Serena is a gorgeous blend of baby alpaca and pima cotton. These two luxurious Peruvian fibers give Serena the best of both words: the elasticity of animal fibers, that make it super nice to knit, and the fresh touch of cotton, plus the extraordinary softness of both fibers. The mix of fibers and our singular dyeing process give Serena a soft heather color effect, just like stone washed denim.
Use Serena for soft, relaxed and timeless knits.
