At this point, I’m just haunting Myrrhia‘s site, obsessed as I am with the juxtapositions of this label’s pieces. It’s soft and cozy sustainable knitwear, but it’s incredibly clean-lined; bright colors and modernist patterns recall home-decor designs, but the collection is made up of wearable-anywhere dresses, vests, and a high-waisted skirt; its crafted, but not crafty.

The made-in-California label uses zero-waste via flat knitting technology, so that each piece can be fully fashioned sans yarn waste, and all yarns and fibers are grown and spun in the US.

According to the note on each piece in the online shop:

In Oakland, California, we knit each piece fully fashion with no waste using cutting edge flat knitting technology and the highest quality linked finishes. The Material: 100% Merino Wool. Our yarn is made of cashmere-grade merino that feels incredible against the skin. Scientific research has proved that merino wool is the highest-performing fiber in the world. Natural fibers spun and dyed with low-impact dyes here in the United States. Save our waterways.
