See where we'll be this fall & come say hi!

The wool in many of our styles is from hearty New England sheep, whose fibers are long and durable...and make really cozy sweaters. Our finer wool styles are made using a blend from the Rocky Mountains. Sheep with finer wool prefer arid climates over cold, damp New England.

Our local partners process the wool gently, so it retains its lanolin and weather-proofing. It also retains natural color and texture characteristics, so each piece is entirely unique. We like to use the rich natural colors the sheep were born with; when we do have wool dyed, our regional dye houses use only organic plant-based dyes and never dump harmful chemicals into our waterways.

Our alpaca fiber is also from New England farms, where alpacas do quite well. Which it wonderful because honestly, wearing a luxurious alpaca sweater is like wearing a warm hug.

Our cotton is a blend of organic & recycled cotton; cotton scraps created during the production of tee shirts are recycled & blended with organic cotton to make new yarns.

We use hemp & linen for our blends & lighter summer styles.

We also use lyocell, which is made from the wood pulp of trees grown on tree farms.  

We occasionally use deadstock luxury yarns in our styles. Remanants that larger brands consider "waste" but that are perfect for our small runs.  

Garment Care

Muriel's knits are treated with natural botanicals - not harsh chemicals - and should be washed gently. Turn garments inside out and gently wash with cool water and mild soap. Cotton styles can be washed in a machine, put the garment in a mesh bag and use the gentle cycle on cold. Lay garments flat to dry. Use a pilling comb when necessary.
