A turtleneck sweater with a twist, made for everyday wear
The Alexia is simple but highly sophisticated sweater made from the finest materials, featuring a black and white plaid turtleneck as its most distinctive characteristic. It is made from cashmere and Superfine Wool, an ultra-soft wool taken from a lamb’s first shearing, and features a relatively dense knitting pattern and mid-thickness yarn, resulting in a wonderful texture and warmth. Made In Portugal
Materials: 90% Superfine Wool, 10% Cashmere
Friendly Materials: Francis Stories uses 100% natural materials in its garments (including yarns, fabrics, and other elements like buttons) which are entirely biodegradable.
Locally Crafted: Garments are made exclusively in Portugal, predominantly in a family-owned and family-managed small-scale factory in the north or by local craftswomen.
Cruelty-Free: Francis Stories uses wool sourced from farms that do not engage in mulesing. Mulesing is the process of directly removing part of a sheep's posterior flesh, very often including the tail and often without any type of anesthesia, to ensure that the new skin is smoother and that there are no folds and crevices where infections can settle.
Considerately Produced: Francis Stories strives for transparency in all levels of its supply chain - from the wool farmers predominantly based in Australia (who are certified with the SustainaWool Integrity Scheme, which guarantees wool from producers who promote the health and wellbeing of sheep, high standards of management of natural resources and fair working conditions for labour), to the yarn production (which takes place in a factory in Italy and is certified with the Traceability and Fashion certificate, issued by the Italian Chambers of Commerce), and the final creation of garments (which takes place in a factory in Portugal and is regularly visited by the Francis Stories' founder to ensure the safe and fair working conditions of labourers)
Packaging: Packaging is almost entirely plastic free and includes a cardboard box with the brand’s image and a secondary cardboard box for shipping, which is closed with a paper-based water activated tape.The only plastic element is the bag for shipping tags that DHL requires to reduce the risks of damaging the tags and rendering them unreadable / unscannable.
