In September 2017, a class-action lawsuit
was filed against The Gap for allegedly deceptively representing that products – such as the Banana Republic Honeycomb Merino Shawl Cardigan – are “100% Extra Fine Merino Wool” when, according to the plaintiffs, they are only 68% extra fine merino wool and are mixed with cotton, rayon, and nylon.
