From the Ashford website:
”Ashford wool sliver is 100% pure New Zealand wool. Our wool is grown on sheep farms in the South Island of New Zealand where the sheep graze on large grassy paddocks and are free from mulesing. We only use wool with good length that is free from breaks, has high bulk, brightness, low vegetable matter and is the correct micron. The wool is washed using a standard aqueous treatment with eco friendly biodegradable detergent. Then in our very own woollen mill in Milton, our staff ensure every process is to the highest standard. We start by dyeing the wool using ecologically-safe Oeko-Tex compliant dyes (detailed information can be found at https://www.oeko-tex.com/en/our-standards/standard-100-by-oeko-tex), then steam dry, card, gill, comb and finally wind into bumps. The sliver is then ready to use with no waste or preparation.”
