MATERIALITY.

JHL garments are made from a unique cotton and cashmere blend. We choose cotton for its strength, stability and easy-care properties, and cashmere for its soft and luxurious handle. We use sustainable and traceable cashmere sourced from Inner Mongolia. The goats roam grasslands freely, they are not treated with chemicals or hormones and their fibres are harvested in a cruelty-free method by hand combing in their native grasslands. Our cashmere is processed without the use of chemicals or industrial colouring. 

NATURAL VS SYNTHETIC.

Natural fabrics are made from fibres that originate from plants, animals, or minerals. These raw, natural materials are spun into threads and yarns and then woven or knit into natural fabrics. There are two general categories of natural fibres: animal-based or plant-based. Animal-based natural fibres include cashmere, silk and wool, while plant-based natural fibres include cotton and linen. Synthetic fibres are made of synthetic materials, usually formed through chemical processes. The textile industry began creating synthetic fibres as less expensive and more easily mass-produced alternatives to natural fibres.

As a brand we have always appreciated the feel and drape of natural fibres. The technology around fabric development is an exciting and evolving space and there is now a keen focus on sustainability in the production of both natural and synthetic fabrics and we are always looking closely at the circularity of our fabrics choices. We are excited by the continued evolution to a more transparent sharing of knowledge within our industry (both from our suppliers, and to our consumers), and this, combined with the ongoing improvement in technology and fabric productions, ensures we are able to make more consciously sustainable choices with our fabrics and fibres now more than ever before.

GARMENT CARE.
We design and produce our JHL garments with longevity in mind. The following care instructions are a general guideline for garment care in order to get the most out of your JHL piece. We recommend you refer to your garments specific care instructions or do get in touch with us directly if you have any questions.
COTTON CASHMERE CARE.

Bringing together the strength, stability and easy-care properties of cotton with the soft and luxurious handle of sustainable and traceable cashmere, the resulting yarn used to create our JHL pieces is a beautiful lightweight fine gauge knit, and the perfect year-round next-to-skin layer.

  • Where practical, we recommend airing your garment. Kinder to both your garment and the environment
  • Luke warm delicate hand wash separately
  • Do not wring your JHL garment. We reccomend laying flat on a towel and rolling up to remove excess moisture
  • Try not to dry your garments in direct sunlight
  • Do no tumble dry as it may cause damage to your garment
  • Like all natural fibres, your JHL garment may pill in the early stages of wear. Using a gentle de-pilling machine is the best option to manage this
  • Always refer to a garments own label for specific care instructions
