What are the sizes of the garments?

The sizes of our designed garments are based on the European reference table however, they are meant to be close to “one size only” standard whenever possible. As an alternative - compare the width and the length of your favourite garment you wear with the measurements provided in the description of each item.

What material is mainly used for production in Wool Element?

We love natural materials as wool, cotton, silk and linen. Rarely, a non natural material is used and only as a special feature.

Is Wool Element friendly to animals?

Come on! We love all of them!!!! Some animals give us wool, and wool means something very good to us... We select very carefully the wool we buy and we pay a special attention to the conditions under which the wool providers work with their animals. We love to try and promote home based spinners so contact us if you wish to join our team.
