Black Sheep Cardigan
Patent Knit. Warmth retaining and breathable.
A comfortable, warmth retaining knit jacket with a shawl collar and very traditional form, knit on an historical hand loom. It’s the material of choice for the period between fall and winter because the patent knit lets through the wind, preventing sweating. When it gets colder and windier it’s advisable to put on a sweater underneath the jacket.
Wool from black sheep.
This warmth retaining article of clothing is made of rugged Black Welsh Mountain Sheep wool (in Welsh: Defaid Mynydd Duon), a short, robust and undemanding breed of sheep from the barren Welsh hill country. The type of knitting employed brings out the variety of color especially well. The two ply fabric has a lot of thread in a small amount of space which enhances the warmth retaining characteristics of the wool fibers without compromising the air permeability. The wool is left in a natural state and processed undyed. It contains a lot of lanolin, and maintains the natural elastic characteristics of the fabric. It’s a material that is wind-resistant, almost water repellant and slightly oily to the touch.
Wool. From black sheep
This warming garment is knitted from the strong and hard-wearing wool of the Black Welsh Mountain Sheep (in Welsh: Defaid Mynydd Duon), a small, robust and frugal breed of sheep that has its home in the barren Welsh hills. The wool is processed natural and undyed, the way of knitting brings out its natural multicolor especially well. The voluminous knitted fabric offers a lot of yarn supply in a small space: this favors the good heat retention capacity of the wool fiber without compromising its air permeability. The wool still contains a lot of lanolin, so its natural properties remain tangibly preserved in the elastic knit - but it is still slightly oily to the touch and smells a little like sheep.
