New wool yarns for summer
Wool qualities for summer
The “wool in summer” range will engage customers to get out of their comfort zone and to explore unexpected worlds. Many people still think wool is typically intended for winter applications: The company explicitely asks its customers “to jump in at the deep end” and to work with wool for functional and outdoor clothing during the summer season. Wool has functional characteristics as a temperature regulating, natural fibre; it provides a natural cooling effect, breathability as well as odour resistance and comfort. Blended with other fibres, wool properties can even be enhanced, like in Monopoli Nm 60/1 (74% Merino wool 17,2 μ, 13% linen, 13% nylon filament), or in other fibre combinations like Merino wool plus Trevira® polyester and hemp, Merino wool blended with Coolmax® or Lenzing™ Lyocell (Tencel®).
Wool blended with silk
Wool blended with silk, presented in the quality Losanna Nm 60/1 (85% Merino wool 19,3 μ, 15% silk), is an all-time-favourite. Merino-silk qualities provide a natural elegance, high comfort as well as high elongation and durability. The combination of these high performance fibres is the right choice for everyday wear and glamourous styles with a lustrous shimmering look.
