Why is Ly Knitted Beanie – Grey Melange sustainable?
Gotland Sheep Wool. – The Swedish sheep industry throws away thousand tons of wool each year due to the fact that no one makes use of the fiber. At Residus we are always on the hunt for high quality leftover! Our Gotland Wool Project is created to make use of some of the beautiful Gotland Sheep wool that would otherwise go to waste. Cut on Swedish farms, spun in Denmark and knitted in Latvia.
Made close to home. – The factory who knitted this garment and the mill who spun the yarn are both in Europe. Above all this means strong worker unions and carefully controlled chemical processes. In addition this means that efficiently stocked trucks transports the beanie over short distances.
