The sweater seemed like mature wool, not soft like lambswool and some of the fibers were even wiry. Definitely not from a lamb. I actually looked later at some other lambswool sweaters in a medium-priced chain store and they were much, much softer. Although I liked the color/cut it is itchy and coarse.
Thank you for your feedback. We can assure you that this Lambswool sweater is definitely the product of a Lamb. The feel of the wool could be down to the new process that WoolOvers use in the manufacturing which is better for the environment. Our Pure Lambswool garments are now steam cleaned rather than washed when they are finished, using a lot less water. This means that your jumpers and Cardigans could feel less soft until you wash them. We hope this information is helpful to you and please do get back to us if you have any other queries.
