Fabric Care: Hand wash with gentle detergent, wool or baby shampoo Lay flat to dry on a towel. Apply a gentle iron with a slow steam Do not tumble dry
Benefits of extra fine merino wool: Lightweight crease resistant fabric which holds its shape and colour Reactive natural fibre which responds to your body temperature Outstanding thermoregulating and wicking properties Wear straight to skin or as a second layer Odour resistant material due to good bacteria being able to neutralise scent Sustainable, carbon neutral, clothing choice
Why we use hand wash only merino wool: Machine-washable merino wool is treated with a heat-resistant plastic, which cracks as it is washed and tumble dried. Aggressive washing damages merino, causing the wool to pill more, lose its shape and appear worn quicker than caring for hand wash only fibres. Overall, choosing hand wash only merino wool means items last longer and they’re more environmentally friendly.

About Paul James Knitwear
We are Paul James - a luxury, Leicestershire-based knitwear manufacturer. We strive to deliver the purest knitwear experience, which is why we shun man-made fibres, instead using only 100% natural fibre yarns in the production of our knitwear.
We trawl the globe in search of the most prestigious spinners to ensure every piece of Paul James knitwear is crafted from the most luxurious materials. We travel to Italy for extra-fine merino wool - then to Peru for a chunkier version – India and Egypt for premium cotton, South America for ultra warm, soft Alpaca and the British Isles for its famed wool and lambswool.
We take these yarns and knit them into stylish, functional garments that are made to last.
