Ashford Corriedale sliver is a 100% New Zealand product with wool from pasture-fed sheep. Many farmers have been on the land for generations. They take great pride in the quality of their wool and their high standard of animal husbandry. The sheep are well cared for and are not mulesed. After the sheep are shorn on the farm, the wool is carefully skirted and checked. Only wool that is sound and clean with good fibre length, bulk and colour is selected. It is sent to a boutique New Zealand mill to be dyed, carded and combed. It is scoured (washed) using an environmentally-friendly, biodegradable detergent. The wool is then dried and dyed. The dyes comply with the strict EU regulations and garments made from the sliver can be certified under the Oeko-Tex Standard 100. This standard is the most widely known standard for certification of ecologically-safe clothing. (Detailed information can be found at www.oekotex.com). The fibre is then gently opened and conditioned. Carding machines align the fibres and remove any foreign matter. It is then gilled and combed.

Ashford Corriedale sliver is available natural or dyed.
