Its made using wool from sheep on the British mainland and spun in the UK so has a low carbon footprint. the wool fibres have been specially treated before being spun to enable it to be machine washable, therefore will not ‘felt’ when washed. The wool is combined with a smaller percentage of nylon giving the knitted fabric extra durability and strength making it harder wearing.
