Ted and Bessie are committed to creating low-impact knitwear that can last a lifetime. Alpaca fleece is one of the most sustainable natural materials and doesn't require any treatment or chemical processing. The alpaca themselves need very little land, and as they are part of the Camelid family, require very little water as well. Furthermore, all Ted & Bessie production takes place within the UK which reduces the environmental cost of transport during production.
Made In Europe
Ted & Bessie raise their own Alpaca in England so they know exactly where their fleece comes from. Once a year the alpaca are sheered, and the fleece is sent to a spinner based in Cornwall, England. The yarn is then knitted in Nottingham, England into bespoke knitwear.
