How does it fit?
Comfortably — loose enough to move around in, but not baggy. Choose your size like you're shopping for a T-shirt. If you're between sizes, choose the smaller one.
How do I care for it?
Like any garment made from raw wool, the Black Sheep Sweater is dry clean only.
- Fabric: 100% natural (undyed and untreated) wool from actual black sheep.
- Made in California.
Black Raw-Wool Sweater
For The Black Sheep of the Family
Every family has its black sheep. But does every black sheep have his very own sweater, something to keep him warm and snug in lieu of a loving embrace?
Now he does. It's made of raw wool that's naturally black (more grayish-brown, actually), because it comes from actual black sheep.
These ovine outcasts hail from a couple of small ranches near Yellowstone National Park. Despite their name, they're some of the happiest sheep around. They're raised how you'd imagine Western sheep would like to be raised — in fresh air and wide open spaces, with lots of summer grass to munch on during the day and a complete collection of John Wayne DVDs to watch at night.
And the yarn made from their wool is all-natural — undyed and untreated. Rest assured that our Black Sheep Sweaters (and their cloven-hoofed namesakes) have never seen the inside of a chemical vat or smoke-belching megafactory. These beautiful garments are made in small batches in Northern California and available only at Betabrand.com.
