Why Choose Eco Merino – and Sponsoring Cedar the Sheep

why choose eco merino, cedar the sheep, eco merino wool sweaters Canada

Our wool is made without caustic chemicals and the sheep are free-range pasture raised with no mulesing from New Zealand raised sheep.

The wool is sheared by hand and not dipped in chemicals.

For every sweater sold this year we will donate to the care of our sheep, Cedar! He is a rescue at a farm sanctuary we volunteer at https://www.kindredfarm.ca.

Cedar needs to be sheared because he was raised for his wool. This type of sheep no longer sheds naturally  so we sheared him humanely in March and expect to have his wool fully cleaned and spun by October.

We are sponsoring his care and feeding this year and hope to do so next year as well based on our merino wool sales.  We want to draw attention to more humane animal management whether for wool or cashmere.

Our merino is super fine and pre-washed so you can even wash it!  No more “dry clean only”  for unprocessed wools.  Dry cleaning is so bad for the environment.   Delicate wash in cold water or by hand – no wringing – just squeeze and lay flat to dry – then press with warm iron.  Our wool is expensive – we know that so we tried to keep the prices reasonable. Our styles are all investment pieces and will last season after season after season… you get it…
