Undyed yarns highlight the asperities and the depth of shades that are innate to raw materials, while being a gauge of uniqueness and durability.
They are natural and environmentally friendly alternatives to classic industrial dyes.
Amongst those fibers, shetland wool spontaneously offers a very large palette of shades. Some are recognized by the association of preservation of shetland sheep, which is a native species from scotland. They are named after the local scot shetlandic dialect, like the shalea, an iron grey, the moorit, a reddish brown, or the musket, a light grey brown.
Having at our heart's preoccupation the selection of natural and durable fabrics, we have chosen an undyed shetland wool, in a heathered greige, to make our mock neck collar pullover. The wool comes from a historic scottish mill, with a crafsmanship retracing to the xviiith century. Its rustic and confortable texture brings to mind handknitted pullovers, besides, it is entirely fully fashioned, thanks to the crafsmanship of our knitting atelier SJ la manufacture, in Saint-James, Normandy. Also, you will maybe like the reassuring smell of lanolin of this piece, which is the natural oil that protects the fibers of the wool.
