Did you know?
Knit: knitting is an extremely versatile method which can create various structures and patterns. The resulting look can range from extremely fine to elegant, extravagant or even coarse and casual fabrics.
Alpaca: alpaca fleece comes from the South American alpaca which is shorn every two years. The fibre is fine, soft and slightly curly and is excellent for providing insulation.
Viscose: used to be known as 'artificial silk' because like silk it has superb drape, is soft to the skin and can be dyed in rich colours. A man-made fabric, it's made from wood pulp and blends easily. You will often find it blended with other fabrics to add softness, lustre or absorbency (it's highly absorbent and so cool to wear in the summer).
Wool: A natural fibre, wool is an insulator which means it is very warm to wear. It's resilient and elastic and so garments can stretch comfortably with you, then easily return to their natural shape. It's non-allergenic, so good for people with skin sensitivity, is flame retardant and even dirt and stain resistant. What's more, it's very biodegradable, so at the end of its life you can happily dispose of your garment knowing it won't have an environmental impact.
