Sweater Porch, different colors
The new collar of the hat farm Porch protects the ears from the cold and delights with its graceful style.
Hat collars are a real local production. The material is organic sheep's wool and all work steps are done in Finland. The collars are created by hand knitting on the sticks of the table-top hat grandmothers and each is signed by their creator.
The wool is hand-dyed or left in a natural color. Hand dyeing gives the wool a vibrant and deep color tone. The processing of wool preserves its natural fat, lanolin, which makes wool water and dirt repellent.
One size. The collar stretches and shapes to fit the wearer's head.
Material: 100% Finnish sheep organic wool.
The collar will be mailed as a letter / small package. If you wish, you will receive a Myssyfarm gift box with the collar. Then put a message as a gift In the Shopping Cart Special Instructions for the Seller section.
Why is this a more ecological and ethical option?
Wool is one of the few textile fibers that we in Finland can produce locally. By utilizing fine Finnish wool, handicraft products made entirely of local production and organic quality can be produced.
At present, Finnish wool is an underused material, of which about 70% is disposed of as waste. The hat farm does long-term work to raise Finnish wool back to its value and has raised to a new level of the price per kilogram of wool.
The hat farm collaborates with numerous organic farms and provides additional income and meaningful work for 80 retired hat product knitters.
The Finnish sheep and the merino sheep are the only two sheep breeds in the world whose wool fibers turn inwards. Due to the structure, the wool of Finnish sheep is especially soft.
