Yarn Origins
This hat is knitted yarns spun from British Bluefaced Leicester fleece. The yarns are sourced from a mill in Yorkshire. The mill obtains fleece via the British Wool Marketing Board, thereby providing assurance standards of British animal welfare have been met in the treatment of British sheep flocks. The yarn is then dyed in the Scottish Borders before travelling a short distance to the knitwear manufacturer in Hawick.
Manufacturing & Fair Labour
This Ally Bee item is crafted in a small, well-respected factory in Hawick in the Scottish Borders, in a region renowned for long-established artisanal knitwear manufacturing techniques. The process involves setting up manually operated hand-frame knitwear machines, hand-linking of garments, a short washing process and skillful finishing. While no factory audits are carried out by Ally Bee, a 7 year working relationship with the factory, consistently high quality work and lack of employee churn speaks volumes about the favourable work conditions and employment standards.
