This smart pullover is in a deep grey – almost black.
The outer is made with 100% wool, whilst the inside is a blend of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton. The metal zip ensures, as with all our products, that there is no plastic involved.
The clothes industry is a particularly dirty industry – we’re trying to do things in a better way!
None of our clothes contain polyester, nylon, or any other unsustainable man-made fibres, ensuring that micro plastics don’t end up in the sea. But that’s just the start. Below is a list of credentials that this product adheres to:
The “Organic Content Standard – Blended” (OCS) certifies that part of the material used in this fabric is organic. In this case 45% of the fabric inner is cotton (14% overall) and is certified as organic. But what about the 55% hemp (18% overall)? Well, naturally, hemp doesn’t require any pesticides or other polluting chemicals. As such, the addition of costly chemicals is not something that would benefit the farmer and therefore the certification process is unnecessary. Click the OCS logo below to find out more about their certification process, or visit our blog to see why we think hemp is the wonder fabric we need.
Fair Wear Standard
The Fair Wear Foundation is a non-profit organisation with the mission to “see a world where the garment industry supports workers in realising their rights to safe, dignified, properly paid employment”. The manufacturer of this product is certified to the Fair Wear standard. Click on the Fair Wear logo below for more detailed information.
The outer of this garment is made with 100%, mulesing free, sheep wool.
The inner is a blend of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton.
Overall, this means that the garment uses 68% wool, 18% hemp and 14% organic cotton
Hemp is naturally antibacterial, antifungal and antimicrobial. It has excellent moisture wicking properties and due to the fact the fibre is hollow, it insulates you against the heat in the summer and cold in the winter.
Hemp fibres are 4 to 5 times stronger than cotton. Whilst 100% hemp fabrics are great, they do have a similar feel to linen – not the softest. Organic cotton, however, is super soft. This blend of hemp and organic cotton gives the best compromise between strength and feel.

Caring for your garment
A big chunk of the environmental impact a garment has occurs once it’s in your hands. These guidelines not only ensure that your garment will last, but also help to keep the planet cool.
- Only wash when it really needs it. This saves energy, water, your time and extends its life.
- When it’s ready for a wash, turn it inside out. This reduces the abrasion on the outside of the garment, and helps keep it looking crisp for longer.
- Hand wash at 30 degrees to keep your pullover in the best possible condition.
- Line dry after washing.
