Wool and cashmere are considerably warmer than synthetic fibres and are naturally hypoallergenic. They are also breathable, regulating your temperature when the weather around you changes. They are UV resistant and odour resistant. The antibacterial properties of wool and cashmere mean they need to be washed less frequently than synthetic fibres and they can be laundered at lower temperatures, further reducing their environmental footprint. After washing, wool and cashmere dry quickly and are wrinkle resistant. Wool and cashmere are also naturally fire resistant.
In addition to the practical benefits, our finest cashmere, merino and vicuna products are also a worthwhile investment in over 200 years of craft and skill. The exceptional quality of our products ensures their longevity. Our iconic knitwear will carry you effortlessly from season to season, with styles that transcend passing trends.
At the end of their life, your natural wool and cashmere products will biodegrade and return to the soil. Fibres classed as non-biodegradable such as polyester, viscose and nylon will take between 20 and 200 years to degrade depending on conditions.
