It’s “Weigh Day”!
There is a lot of discussion among society regarding transparency within the clothing and textile industries, including how things are made and priced. When we are pricing pieces, prices are based on three things: the weight of fibre, the length of time it takes to create a piece (labour), and dyeing costs (materials and time). I’ve always felt this pricing method is fair and transparent as it reflects the different material and process costs, and even more so, the cost of labour.
No matter the piece, labour is always the most significant price factor, which makes sense when you consider our pieces are “yarn forward factory free”.
I always feel it is important, and interesting, to know about how things are made. It is part of the story of our knitwear.
Canadian is our thing. Canadian farmed wool. Canadian mills. Knitwear handcrafted in Canada. In a world flooded with imports, we think it is pretty special to create a Canadian made product for Canadians.
Each time a customer buys one of our wool toques, scarves, or even a little Coffee Sweater, they are supporting a whole Canadian supply chain. Farmers, veterinarians, mill workers, and transport workers all benefit in various stages of the production and delivery of the wool yarn we use.
We all work together to create a truly Canadian product, and in this era, that is pretty rare.
Welcome to W1 Hundred. We craft unapologetically ethical fashion. Naturally dyed. Hand knit and hand woven. Made in Canada. Made right.
