Love the functionality, insulating properties, and color-fastness of wool but can't abide the itch? If you're like me-constantly wishing that wool felt better against the skin-than you'll admire Camira's Blazer collection. The new line of fabric features sustainably-sourced Laneve Wool, "from lambs shorn for the first time when coats are at their softest and freshest."
Soft and Sustainable Blazer Wool
The smooth and sumptuous tactile quality isn't the only thing to recommend Laneve. The wool is sourced from farms on New Zealand's Banks Peninsula. This pristine locale of less than 7,000 people is also home to the endangered Hector's Dolphin, and the region has a deserved reputation for sustainability and eco-awareness: "These farmers are passionate not only about their own farms and livestock but also the sustainability of our local resources that we coexist with."
Laneve Wool's stellar reputation has helped parlay Blazer into the fastest selling wool product worldwide. It's no wonder-Camira offers Blazer in 60 vivid colorways. And Camira offers a portion of all proceeds to continuing conservation efforts for the Hector's Dolphin: "We make a donation to the New Zealand Whale and Dolphin Trust for every metre of Blazer fabric sold."
