We love wool - we'd even go so far as to say it's an eighth world wonder, if we were feeling particularly enthusiastic - but sometimes you just need a little flecking. One of the positives of flecked wool - besides the endless opportunities to both confuse and offend partially deaf folk - is that it adds understated character to what would otherwise be an entirely plain item.
There's no shortage of companies working the fleck look - with the likes of Our Legacy & A.P.C both turning their hands to the style. Primarily used on knitwear, brands have also started to fleck blazers, trousers and hats, so you can be sure to pick up static-a-plenty, wherever you may go.
