Why we love waffle? Well, it’s perfect for long hours spent jet-setting across the world. It’s effortless for when miss or mister rights pops by for the first time. And it’s the Sunday brunch selection we love to top with seasonal fruits and dairy-free whipped topping.
While we’ll forever love the classic breakfast go-to, the fabric version has recently stepped it up a notch.
“How,” you ask? Well, gone are the days where waffle knits were only worn as loungewear. Alo engineered a thermal knit that’s ultra-soft, lightweight yet warming, and textured but smoothing — and not only are stylists like Elizabeth Sulcer loving it, but the endorphin-obsessed also can’t get enough.
Whether you choose to cozy up or get your sweat on, micro waffle is giving that versatile edge we love to have in our closets. This multi-faceted little fabric is so adaptable that we had to design styles for work (from home), play, and practice, so without further ado, let’s break down what makes this brekkie-inspired fabric the winner that it is.
WHY WE 🖤 MICRO WAFFLE
Ultra-Soft Knit – like a dream, but better, our micro waffle takes softness to the next level
Comfy and Cool – perfect for lounging around town or feeling your best at home (which is why we recommend getting double)
Lightweight but Warming - this thermal knit cozies up and keeps warm but breathes when you find yourself on your mat
Stretch It Out – your yoga practice, good morning stretches, and meditation ritual will thank you
On-Trend Waffle-Knit Texture - after seeing all the celebs in chic thermal knit looks, we had to follow suit
Touch of Sculpt - just enough to flatter and smooth but keep comfy throughout a day on the town or a day spent hanging at home
WHERE WE WEAR SEAMLESS
The light, textured fabric of micro waffle is perfect for yummy morning stretches and weekend yoga classes. It keeps cool, chill, and soft which is everything we’re trying to embody during a gentle flow.
We’ve been told micro waffle completely replaces all go-to vegging-out fits, and after you get a taste of the waffle, you’ll understand why. Some of our fave comments? “I traveled in them for hours and they never stretched out,” or “These are my go-tos for that time of the month.”
