Our pieces are made from 100% Merino wool which is classed as a precious fibre due to its softness and unique properties. We source our signature merino wool from an 80-year-old family business based in Arequipa, Peru, which works to support local shepherds and their families through community outreach. They produce the finest wool in the world by combining ancient Peruvian textile practices with cutting-edge manufacturing techniques. It is currently the only wool of its softness and thickness, spun using the latest technology into a chain which minimises pilling and creates a dimension of texture not found in any other merino in the world. It’s hypoallergenic, biodegradable, renewable and, believe it or not, fire retardant! In order to get the most out of your piece, spot clean any isolated stains and dry clean. Don’t be afraid to shake it out and reshape where necessary, merino is naturally elastic. All wool has a tendency to pill over time so just remove any bobbles and give any pom poms a haircut if needed. As all our items are handmade from delicate precious fibres, to extend the life of your piece do handle with care.
