Elle + Riley work with trusted yarn suppliers based in China and Hong Kong.
They certify that all the yarn provided to Elle + Riley and used in our sweaters include cashmere fibre collected by the professional hair clippers from Inner Mongolia, Tibet or North West of China where strict control of herd size ensures its sustainability and care for the environment.
The goats the yarn is collected from, are free from hunger and thirst by having access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigor. The goats are provided an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area. Rapid diagnosis and treatment means they are pain free, injury and disease free.
To ensure the goats are able to live normally they are provided with large grazing spaces, proper facilities and company of the animals' own kind.
We have worked with our partners since Elle + Riley began, and ensure fair pay and working conditions are provided for all employees. Our factories are centrally located and well cared for.
