There are two types of AWR piece in this section. Prototypes and Buy-backs.
For three years, we experimented. World class hand knitting is hard!
Dyeing. Spinning. Colouring. Yarns. Tension. Weight. Durability. Wearability. Arm length. Neck height. Body length. Minimising negative environmental impact. Zipper quality. Body shape. (Especially body shape. Getting a successful gender neutral solution - that was tricky). And hundreds of hours later - we were ready.
Along the way we created some pretty wonderful prototypes. All are one-offs. And what a shame it is that they've been sat, homeless, folded neatly in the glass cases of our studio in Northumberland. When they could be being worn by you.
So, we cleaned them, steamed them, combed them, labelled them and packaged them - with the exact same love and care as we would with any AWR mainline piece. And here is every one-off piece for you to buy.
We've taken the time to describe in detail why these prototypes didn't make the final cut. So you know exactly what you're getting. And don't worry - our returns policy is exactly the same with a prototype as it is with anything else. You get the full Care Kit too (worth £38).
We'll buy-back any AWR jumper or scarf. Anytime. Because we want our world class AWR Collection to be loved, worn and last lifetimes.
So, if for whatever reason you want to send your AWR off to a new home, email email@example.com and Mychael will do the rest - one-on-one.
Once the piece is back at our home, we repair, clean, steam, comb, and re-package. And don't worry - our returns policy is exactly the same with buy-backs as it is with anything else.
All buy-back pieces are sold at a reduced price and are listed for sale in this section. To join the buy-back waitlist email firstname.lastname@example.org.
