Cheviot sheep are one of the oldest breeds in Britain and have always been highly valued for the
whiteness of the fibre they produce. The other great asset of using British wool with a micron of 24
is the tensile strength and natural resilience to wear and creasing.

handle for incredible performance, and is the ultimate travel suiting quality

Bamboo fabric are soft, light and silky with excellent wicking properties whilst the fibers provide great insulation in colder climates. Meaning you can enjoy garments in bamboo cloth from spring right through to autumn. It is also hydrophilic and has natural deodorizing qualities. Bamboo clothing (both mechanically and chemically manufactured) is 100% biodegradable and can be completely decomposed in the soil by microorganisms and sunlight.
Bamboo is a fast-growing plant requiring no pesticides to grow it is regarded as an ecologically friendly fabric and highly sustainable. It is the fastest-growing grass and can shoot up a yard or more a day. Bamboo reaches maturity quickly and is ready for harvesting in about 4 years. Bamboo does not require replanting after harvesting because its vast root network continually sprouts new shoots which almost zoom up while you watch them, pulling in sunlight and greenhouse gases and converting them to new green growth. And bamboo does this the natural way without the need for petroleum-guzzling tractors and poisonous pesticides and fertilizers.
