We love design and fashion and most of all we like knitting. We have a passion for exciting natural materials and never compromise in the choice of quality for our design. We want to highlight the diversity of natural fibers and all the benefits of wool compared to synthetic materials. We only use natural fibers that are broken down in the soil, unlike synthetic and mixed materials. We think that you as a customer have the right to know where and how each garment from us has been manufactured. We ensure that animals, nature and humans are treated well throughout the manufacturing process and only cooperate with companies whose values are in line with our own.
Mohair is wool fiber from the angora goat. The goat lives mainly in North America, South America, Turkey and in western Asia at an altitude of 1000 meters. The animals are sheared twice a year and deliver approx. 1.5-2.5 kg mohair roll.
The wool has long fibers, is a bit frizzy, white-yellow and glossy.
A mohair garment is light and warming.
Alpaca fiber comes from the camel animal alpaca. In areas of Ecuador, northern Bolivia, northern Chile and southern Peru, alpacas live in herds on flat grasslands at altitudes up to 4,900 meters above sea level. Alpaca is known as an exclusive material in the fashion world and very popular thanks to its fantastic softness.
The wool is very fine and soft with 10–20 cm long, silky shiny fibers. The fiber's special structure acts as a heat insulator, protects the body from cold weather and helps maintain body heat and moisture. Alpaca garments are therefore suitable for both low and high temperatures.
Garments in alpaca become strong and compared to other luxury materials it picks less.
Cotton yarn is made from textile fibers from cotton plants. They grow wild as shrubs or trees in tropical areas and cultivation takes place mostly in subtropical and temperate climates. When the flower withers, a capsule is formed that contains a large number of seeds, which are overgrown with long fibers that can be processed into yarn.
All organic cotton that we use is GOTS-certified (Global Organic Textile Standard). The GOTS certificate covers both social responsibility and environmental requirements throughout the chain. The chain includes several steps; cultivation, picking, preparation and manufacture of the garment itself. Gots assures that checks are carried out to ensure that the cotton has grown without the use of toxic pesticides and synthetic fertilizers. Water consumption is also lower for lower environmental impact.
Sheep wool is available in a variety of varieties. Wool breathes and warms, is water and dirt repellent and provides elastic garments that keep their shape.
Merino wool comes from merino sheep and is one of the softest types of wool with thin, fine curly fibers. A yarn spun from merino wool becomes smooth, soft and elastic and fits most types of garments and accessories.
We only design in muleising-free merino wool. Mulesing involves removing strips of wool-bearing skin from the back of a sheep to prevent infestation by flies. A cruel and painful method that we are completely opposed to.
Cashmere is one of the finest and softest natural fibers. Kashmir is underwool fibers from domestic goats that live in very cold climates. The name comes from the Kashmir region, which is located in northern India. The wool is very soft and light and gives nice comfortable knitted garments.
Most of the world's cashmere today comes from the mountains of India, China, Afghanistan and Iran. The finest cashmere comes from Inner Mongolia. In the spring, when the goats begin to shed their winter wool, they are combed to take care of the downy undercoat while the rest of the wool, the so-called cover hair, is left. The undercoat is washed and all remnants of protective hair are removed.
In one year, a cashmere yield only 200g of wool. This together with the fantastic properties of the fiber makes cashmere one of the most exclusive natural materials.
