TRACEABLE CASHMERE

TRACEABLE CASHMERE

 

This season all of our 100% Cashmere styles are made from fibre traceable to the region, Otog Banner region, inner Mongolia. We have partnered with Consinee to provide us with yarn lots that are fully traceable and in line with the Good Cashmere Standard; all farms comply with the highest animal welfare and environmental practices to provide transparency throughout the supply chain.

WHY WE LOVE IT

A year round fabric, cashmere is adaptable to temperature to keep you warm in winter and cool in summer when knitted on lightweight gauge such as our Cloud Cashmere.

 

ZQ Merino

ZQ Merino

 

We have partnered with ZQ™ Merino, the world’s leading ethical merino wool source to ensure all of our merino is sustainable, ethical and traceable through the production process back to the farms where the wool is sourced in New Zealand. All ZQ™ Merino farms are regularly audited to review animal welfare and fair-trade principles.

WHY WE LOVE IT

Offering a luxurious, soft handfeel, merino helps to regulate your temperature meaning it is perfect for layering.

 

RWS WOOL

RWS WOOL

 

The Responsible Wool Standard (RWS) provides the industry with a tool to recognise the best practices of farmers; ensuring that wool comes from farms with a progressive approach to managing their land, and from sheep that have been treated responsibly.

WHY WE LOVE IT

If cared for properly wool can last for years. It is also naturally wrinkle resistant and will still bounce back to its original shape if stretched.

With an extremely soft handle and a more affordable alternative to pure cashmere, with increased robust and functional qualities.
