47% Recycled Nylon 28% Alpaca 25% Wool
This knitted blend has temperature regulating qualities, with wool retaining warmth when needed, while remaining cool and breathable on the body. Alpaca creates a fluffy finish for that cosy, comfortable feel. The nylon allows for durability that will keep your knitwear lasting longer.
Recycled nylon is a low impact, circular fibre made from post-industrial and post-consumer waste like plastic bottles. ELK chooses to use recycled rather than new as part of their commitment to reduce waste and create more sustainable products.
Alpaca is farmed using lower impact traditional methods. Their soft hooves reduce the amount of soil erosion caused from alpaca farming, allowing for minimal damage to the land used for farming.
The wool used in this blend is responsibly farmed and verified non-mulesed. The wool fibres are sourced from Australia and South Africa, and the alpaca fibres are sourced from Peru.
Wool and alpaca are natural, renewable fibres.
These knits were made by Hop Hing Woollen Sweaters Factory who ELK have been working with since 2007. They are a family-owned business established by the late Mr Tsui Senior in 1962. Now owned and managed by his son Jeff, they have their head office, development team and sampling in Hong Kong and their main manufacturing in Dongguan, China. ELK have a great, long-term working relationship with them.
ELK are actively working to source more sustainable yarns with them through Novetex and UPW.
The factory is a member of Sedex and undergoes regular social compliance audits.
The Stropp Knit Vest is a regular fit, but also is a loose knit design that allows for ease in the fit. The key fit points are the bust, hem and the length as it is slightly cropped.
All garments are measured flat (not on body) and then doubled (except the length) to calculate the total circumference. To work out what size will suit you best, flat measure an item that fits you well and use this as a guide. Please contact us if you have any questions or need more information.
