Recycled Cashmere ReVerSo (tm), high-twist Cotton, and Linen yarns, spun

collaboration with Botanical Colors, LLC we offer DIY Kits which pair our
AllStar yarns with botanical dyes.
RMN52 is focused and committed to sustainability, innovation and luxury for
the needle craft community. We aspire to partner with Detroit-based The

and machine knitting. RMN52 knits Italian cashmere beanies on hand looms
in NYC exclusively branded for Detroit Denim. In the future, we will further
develop original design for DIY Kits for hand knitting. We thrive for a future
of philanthropic partnerships and creative collaborations with like-minded
visionaries.
At the NYTM Open Studios, RMN52 will feature three 2 hour Hand Knit
Workshops with accomplished Influencers and Instructors. The Beginner and
Intermediate level Workshops are free to those who aspire to join. AllStar
