SUSTAINABILITY NOTES

British Bluefaced Leicester wool

Our British Bluefaced Leicester wool is sourced from a mill in Yorkshire that uses fleece obtained through the British Wool Marketing Boards. The yarn in this product is dye-free. British sheep are non-mulesed animals.

 

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, our long-standing working relationship with the factory, consistently high quality work and lack of employee churn speaks volumes about the favourable work conditions and employment standards.

 

Dyeing

Ally Bee is committed to spinning a sustainable yarn and the yarn in this item is completely dye-free. Alpaca yarns in this item are natural colour blends made from combinations of the many shades in the alpaca fleece colour palette. As a result, these colours are free of chlorine bleach, are acrylic-free.

 

Sustainability Values

Sustainability is intrinsic across the Ally Bee supply chain - from the sourcing of sustainable yarns, to manufacturing in small quantities to avoid the little discussed fashion industry practice of ‘dead-stock’ dumping, to our paper packaging, tags and plastic-free packaging tape.
