Our Bases

High quality yarns, consistency of product, ethical farming practices and minimising environmental impact are our priorities when sourcing our yarn bases. 

Superwash Merino is sourced in South America and Europe and is mulesing free.  Superwash treatments are carried out in highly regulated treatment plants in the UK and Europe under strict EU regulations ensuring any by-products are removed from the water before it is discharged.

For all bases we recommend cool hand washing with a gentle soap and drying flat.  Superwash Merino can be machine washed at 30 degrees.
