SUSTAINABILITY & CERTIFICATIONS
Cradle to Cradle ® Superfine Merino yarns
This ladies sleeveless jumper is made from a superfine merino yarn with stringent eco certifications from the raw source of the fleece from traceable, well managed sheep flocks and Australia with high standards of animal welfare, through to clean water dyeing, and processing in an established mill in Italy using hydro-electric power.
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.
The Italian spinning mill where this yarn is processed uses a clean water method of dyeing, preventing toxic run off. At the end of the dyeing process water is released clean back into the environment.
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.
