    I learned about Prickly Thistle in my Wee Box this month, so I went to the website and purchased the Elements Slender Scarf. This is a magnificent piece of clothing. I live in Michigan, USA, where it is cold six months of the year. This beautiful scarf will keep me toasty warm all winter long and it looks fabulous. In addition, it is a symbol of my Scottish ancestry and makes me feel like a bad ass rebel when I wear it. I'm in love!

    I was so excited to open the beautifully packed box and feel this Elements water light scarf. It exceeded my expectations, the colour is a beautiful shade of blue that reminds me of the striking mediterranean sea. It is luxurious, soft, lightweight and so warm. It’s obvious how much care and love has gone into making this scarf. Prickly Thistle are a step ahead of the rest and every piece is an investment and something to treasure forever. I have a few other pieces that I love, but was particularly excited to get this one as blue is my favourite colour. Thank you Clare & Team.

    Hey Vicki, we LOVE these pictures but more than that you 100% get what we trying to weave into the world again, buy less love more. The single use disposable cheap world not only damages the planet but we lose that sense of connection and love for things. Investing with pride we think is something you cannot put a 'label' on, it comes from when you know.... no labels required (makes it more fun and secret too :)) x

    For all of our made to order items we can usually have your made to order and measure clothing to you within 2 weeks, when our fabric stores have your fabric on the roll.

    For all items ordered as part of the 4 X A Year Club, we can have your clothing to you from as early as 2 weeks or it may be up to 8-10 weeks if we need more fabric. As we are weavers, its super handy right! No waiting months and months for items to pass around various factories, we do it all under one roof.

    There is loads of cool things you can do and do not need to do when you wear natural fibre clothing! For the full low down on all this caring, checkout our guide and for more info on worn wear repairs, here is some tricks of the trade!.

    You can also read more about our No Wash Club Rules here, try it!

    Here we proudly share with you our less than x 1 mark-up that we apply, and how this garment has been costed.

    Most brands in the 'fashion' world add multipliers of x 2 for wholesale then add another x 2 for retail. When you buy direct from us its a less than x 1, we use the profits from everything we create to support more fairly paid jobs and push the textile world to be more eco-conscious. But we do a lot more like donating to charities and education bodies. This is what we proudly call our ethical pay it forward mark up. For full information on this, check out our full process and pricing page.

    The cost breakdown for this garment is;
    Fabric Cost £19.75
    Labour To Make £15.00
    QC, Labelling & Packing £4.00
    Overheads (incl insurance, premise costs etc) £5.81
    Total Cost To Company £44.56
    Ethical Pay It Forward Mark Up x 0.8 £35.44

    For Cost Per Wear (CPW) we just wanted to share how buying less, paying ethical prices, loving and wearing more is actually really affordable, its all about the number of wears!

    You wear the item 3 times a week for the next 3 years, that is 468 wears. The CPW is £80 divided by 468 wears, Cost Per Wear 17p!

    Read more about our transparent pricing and processes here.

    It is something the 'fashion' world in particular is really bad at.... but we are bad-ass so nothing to hide under this piece of tartan, nothing bad but maybe an ass!

    We want to help be part of the solution that drives regenerative change. Buying less, loving more, paying ethical prices and feeling awesome is what we are all about.

    To do that, we have these yes we give a sh#t options for you!
