The Japan Wool Project is a group of volunteer ranchers and brands from all over Japan that are working hard to revive domestic wool production before the technology for it in Japan is lost. 100% Japanese wool is too stiff to be used for clothing, so to make this yarn more versatile No. 30 Japan Wool 2/7 is a blend of 30% domestic Japanese wool and 70% Australian merino wool.
AND WOOL contributes to the Japan Wool Project by producing this yarn and creating sweaters made with it, too.
About AND WOOL AND WOOL creates high-quality garments and accessories made on hand operated knitting machines. Their mission is to promote the appeal of knitwear by bringing visibility to the people making the products and by creating opportunities for employment and communication as an investment in the future.
