DESCRIPTION AND EXTRA INFO OF THE QUALITIES WE HAVE USED IN OUR GARMENTS.
Traditionally spun classic lambswool, which is the first shave of the sheep, that's why it is so soft. We use only the finest selection of wool mark raw merino wool; natural, sustainable and biodegradable. Although tempting to wear your favo pullover every day: give it a break and change clothing to let it air. Wash it regularly (see care instructions) to remove stains or body-oils. Even when using those of the finest quality, soft yarns are liable to pilling to some extend upon intensive wearing. Handle with care, be aware of sharp objects and remove occurring pills by using a special de-pilling tool, available online at several stores, look for one that can be recharged. Works wonders!

Important advantages of Tencel for the consumer are: it's comfortable, soft, supple and strong. Favorable for our planet is that Tencel (or lyocell) currently is the most environmentally friendly semi-synthetic fiber, processed from wood-cellulose. Similar to viscose and bamboo, but only Tencel is made almost solely of Eucalyptus wood, grown on responsible farms and not from wood of endangered forests, with the use of very few pesticides, if any. These trees need 80% less water to grow compared to cotton and the closed loop process ensure second to none waist and residue of chemicals needed to process the pulp into fibers. When wet this material will get harsh, dry it will retain its softness and suppleness. Like all cellulose based (and natural) fabrics, Tencel may be sensitive to a little creasing at local areas, but less than viscose. The slightly shiny effect of the fabrics we used gives a unique, rich and luxurious feel to the garments.
70% viscose, 30% polyester:
Viscose (originally known as artificial silk) is a regenerated fiber processed from wood cellulose, so a manufactured fiber from a natural source. It is neither truly natural, neither truly synthetic, but falls somewhere in between; the source is natural but the process to make it into fiber demands the use of chemicals. It is a very versatile fiber and it's breathable, absorbent, soft, drapy, smooth, relatively light etc. Viscose is blended here with 30% of Polyester, a man-made polymer consisting of PET-fiber. The characteristics of this fiber are that it is durable and easy to maintain; combining the two makes for a very comfortable and durable fabric. Handle with care and your garment will stay longer.
