Makes you wonder who's wearing the other half of this one - whoever it is, might be your sole mate! - Joe Komodo says... Eat, Pray, Love... Go for a walk!
Wool - Komodo does not use man made substitues or blended yarns. Our wool is 100% pure and is sourced from countries that do not practise Muesling. Please note however, our wool is not currently certified organic - this is something we are working on and hope to have in production in the very near future. Our wool garments are often hand knitted and always hand finished this means every piece can have minor variations which is a sign of it's individuality.... not an imperfection! - Joe Komodo says...
