Merino Lambswool


Photography of knitwear is always difficult - the indoor shots very often make the items a little more dull than they actually are, daylight on the other hand differs so much that depending on the time of year, the time of day etc. the light can be so very different and that makes the colours look different, often slightly brighter than they actually are. We do our best but please be aware that you need to understand that there is only so much we can do and we are by no means the only company that have trouble with colours, particularly when they are mixed like Fair Isle is by definition. 


It is not heat that will ruin your Merino lambswool goods but agitation, this is why it is imperative to do them on a wool cycle only in your machine. No other wash programme washes in the way that a wool programme washes.
