All likemary products have a story.
Our ‘wear forever’ blanket scarves are handwoven on traditional looms by weavers of a cooperative society that came together in 1944 to keep the handloom industry alive.
All knitted accessories are hand made from hand spun wool by ladies in the Himalayas. These women are the sole providers for their families, as their husbands cannot work and the project provides most of them with their only source of income.
Many likemary clothes are made from excess fabric. This means they can never be mass-produced, and every item is special and unique to its proud owner.
We invest a lot of time finding the highest quality fabrics. This is extremely important to us, as is who we buy our material from and the tailors who make our clothes.
We are all about supporting local craftspeople providing them with a way of selling their amazing garments abroad.
Many of likemary clothes are made from the last remaining rolls of beautiful fabric. We love this because it means that garments really cannot be mass produced and you’ll probably be the only one you know wearing this style in this print.
Merino wool is amazing and is the inspiration of likemary. Nicky’s black Takhi Shawl, after many expeditions, continuous to look as gorgeous as the day she bought it.
Why is it amazing:
Due to the interlocking structure of Merino fibres it is super strong and durable which is why you can literally wear likemary Merino wool scarves, shawls and throws for life.
For some of us, merino wool doesn’t have the itchiness normally associated with wool because the fibres from the Merino sheep’s fleece are much finer, more flexible and softly bend.
The fibre is very breathable, efficiently wicking moisture away from your body, through the wool and away into the atmosphere to keep you warm, cool and dry. Wool wonderfully protects your skin against the sun’s harmful UV rays.
likemary Merino wool scarves, shawls and throws are handwoven on traditional looms by a cooperative society in the Himalayan mountains. By buying likemary Merino wool products you are helping to sustain the livelihood of these amazing craftspeople.
We recommend you care for your 100% Merino wool product by drycleaning it.
