Sheep origin -  The wool comes exclusively from Shaniko Wool Company Farm Group ranches that raise Merino/Rambouillet cross sheep. Commonly found in the Western U.S. for their adaptability to semi-arid range conditions, they are large, rugged, gregarious animals known for their high-quality, dense, fine fleece. The wool has been carefully washed, blended, and combed to provide a superior product.

Slow Fiber Movement - Slow Fiber is a term adapted from the popularized Slow Food movement to articulate similar concerns and philosophies as they apply specifically to cloth, fiber, and the craft of making — from awareness and knowledge to production, tradition, practice, commerce.
