Herringbone Boiled Wool - 800G/M²
Description (AI assisted)
Hailing from the beautiful country of Portugal, our Herringbone Boiled Wool is fondly named after its distinctive herringbone pattern and rich blend of intriguing colors that dominate its makeup. It dances in color groups of green, yellow, orange, and pink, mimicking a garden in full bloom. Made entirely of wool, the fabric has the warmth and softness that is particular to the main fiber, and its unyielding quality places it firmly within the category of woollens. Its texture is further refined by a special boiling process, which promotes tight interlock among woolen fibers, resulting in a subcategory classification as Boiled Wool.
Given its robust nature, the width of this fabric measures 140 cm, catering to diverse requirements of various projects with significant ease. With a substantial weight of 800 gsm, it carries a thick, cosy, and luxurious feel to it. It stands tall as part of our permanent season collection, wearable year-round due to its unique blend of comfort and style.
The striking Herringbone Boiled Wool also holds the Responisble Wool Standard (RWS) Wool in Transition certification, a tryst that nods towards our conscious efforts on sustainability. This guarantees that our fabric is responsibly produced, respecting the welfare of the sheep and the land they graze on.
From your boutique design customs to large-scale fashion production, Herringbone Boiled Wool stands as a fitting choice offered in wholesale, promising quality, style, and sustainability with each

About wool in transition (rws)
Burel Factory is currently working towards achieving the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS). One of the steps for this is the tracking and documentation of the shepherds and herds that Burel work with within the region. Burel have started the shearing of the flocks.
RWS is a certification promoted by Textile Exchange that aims to improve the welfare of sheep and the land they graze on. It requires all sites, from wool farmers to the seller in the final business-to-business transaction, to be certified. RWS farmers and ranchers must meet animal welfare, land management, and social requirements. For more information about RWS, click here.
