What are our Ugly Christmas Sweaters Made Of?

News flash - your Ugly Christmas sweater shouldn't be itchy!

When you think of sweaters, what are they made of? Maybe wool, cashmere, alpaca… Well those fibers are all made from animal hair. And just like a stubbly beard can scratch you, so can short, pointy fibers made from animal hair. Plus, you can develop allergies to animal hair - Sarah became allergic to wool in her 20s! 

Our sweaters aren’t made from animal hair. They’re made with an acrylic cotton blend. We use cotton for its durability and softness, and acrylic for its warmth and vibrant colors. Both acrylic and cotton are hypoallergenic and can be washed in a washing machine, although we recommend laying it flat to dry.
