Where does Ibex Wool come from?
Just a note first about Ibex products, we carry an extensive line of Ibex at our store here at Country Woolens 842 Main Road, Westport Massachusetts.
Ibex Wool Clothing comes from Merino sheep which live in New Zealand. There are approximately 40 million sheep living there, outnumbering people by 10 to one!
To make Ibex Wool Clothing sheep are sheared once a year. The wool is combed then finely spun into spindles of yarn. It is then knitted into rolls of fabric so precise that we have a minuscule margin of error.
Over 21,500 are shorn every year for the ibex programs it takes 9 to 12 months from a shorn sheep to a finished garment. Ibex wool is biodegradable so you can feel good about where it
came from and where it’s going. Ibex Wool Clothing has lots of interesting facts, see the chart below to understand how it’s spun.
