The Riley Studio British Wool Patchwork Cable Knit Sweater from Collection 07. This relaxed, gender free design is a modern update of a classic cable knit design. The patchwork construction plays on themes of repair and reconnection that run throughout Collection 07. The cable knit is crafted from 100% British wool farmed in Lancashire, England, harvested from pedigree Bluefaced Leicester sheep - a breed famed for the fine staple and soft quality of their wool. Our British Wool Patchwork Cable Knit goes from field to the finished product within 300 miles, which is a huge environmental saving compared to wool sourced from New Zealand or Australia, where the supply chain can exceed 17,000 miles. To preserve the wool’s low impact credentials the raw wool yarn has been left undyed in its natural ecru colour, with no toxic chemicals used to clean or dye the wool at any point.
About Riley Studio: Riley Studio was founded to make conscious consumerism the norm. In partnership with a network of innovative mills and manufacturers around the world, we are building a core wardrobe of gender free essentials with a positive impact, made from organic and waste materials.
