Hey Everyone Ive just been reading this thread wow !! I dont usually do forums but just thought I could maybe add to this. A year or so back I was up in Scotland on holiday and I actually had the pleasure of meeting the ladies from Inverallan, they are in a small town and when I was there in their factory, purchasing a lovely 3A in Natural one of the knitters actually arrived whilst I was there with sweaters for them !! Ive got to say though I couldnt really care where they are made, they are a great product at a great price and you dont see everyone questioning all the other big brands out there about their stuff, in fact they probably wouldnt even reply to us lol

Look, if you can't pay somebody a fair wage to make your product, it shouldn't be produced. "If they don't think the wage is enough they can go elsewhere" is the same argument Wal-Mart uses today and that most huge companies in the US were trying to play before unionization took off. Minimum wage laws exist to stop exactly that type of exploitation. I have a hard time believing that not a single one of those knitters would have minded getting minimum wage for that work.
Now excuse me while I go snuggle up in my slave-made chunky cardigan.

I've been eyeing the 3A for a long time and I wanted to make sure I got one, especially after all this talk about the companies stability. I think the darker colors are a little under rated around here.
