Organic British Wool:

This GOTS certified raw material is grown in the UK by British farmers that adhere to strict ethical standards and is graded by hand by the British Wool Board. It is then scoured, spun and dyed in the UK to create our Eden yarn.

Alpaca:

Classified as hair and not wool, the smooth texture of alpaca fibres provides a natural light-reflecting lustre, resulting in a soft and silky yarn that feels luxurious to knit with. 75% of the alpaca population can be found in Peru, where flocks roam freely in the Andes mountains.
