Oiled wool is a yarn that hasn’t been highly processed and still contains the natural lanolin oils from the fleece, this gives the pullover the fresh wool smell.
The pullover is Made from 100% British Wool.
Being made in the UK with British Wool gives this sweater a lower carbon footprint
Fully biodegradable and will not shed harmful plastic micro fibres associated with artificial fleece/materials such as polyester.
It will naturally shed off a short shower or spray and still maintains its heat retention due to the natural fibre properties of wool
Being made from Wool the pullover won't absorb sweat compared to man made fibres, this is due to the lanolin in the wool, which gives a natural resistance to moisture.
As this pullover contains natural lanolin's which help it to resist water it is best to wash it as little as possible and since our pullovers are made from unprocessed wool, they don't hold sweat like man-made fibres so they naturally rarely need laundering as they will stay fresher longer. The lanolin provides the pullover with a fresh wool smell.
A top tip from us leave your outdoor knitwear sweater hung on a hanger to re-fresh the garment.
For those who are not a fan of the smell of natural lanolin in wool you can hand wash the sweater with fabric softener to reduce the lanolin smell and soften the feel of the garment.
