Knitted alpaca blend: 30% recycled wool, 30% mulesing-free wool, 30% alpaca, 10% warm, soft, cosy polyamide fabric. The wool is mulesing-free, some of the wool content is recycled and certified. By sourcing recycled materials, we reduce our environmental footprint – our use of water, land, energy and chemicals. Soft, slightly woolly garments are more sensitive than others. Therefore, even the finest wool may be subject to some pilling after repeated wear. Carefully remove any pilling by hand. We recommend airing the garment outdoors in damp weather or steaming with an iron. If absolutely necessary, handwash at 30° or machine wash on the handwash cycle. Use a detergent specifically for wool. Reshape the garment while damp and dry flat. 4-5% shrinkage. Made in Tong Lu, China.
