- Knitted garments
In our knitted garments we use different kinds of high-quality materials and different knitting techniques. The appearance and softness of the garment depend on the knitting technique that is used.
Merino wool comes from the merino sheep and it is a very fine and soft wool. We use merino wool in many of our knitted garments. In comparison to synthetics, merino wool is an active fibre, so it helps you stay warm when the weather is cold, and cool when the weather is hot.
Cashmere comes from the Kashmir goat and has a very soft and airy-light feel and texture. Cashmere is ideal when you want to stay warm because cashmere fibre has more loft than, for example, merino wool, so it's more insulating.
Linen thread is made from the fibres of the flax plant. Linen is light and airy to wear, but owing to the minimal elasticity of the fibres, the fabric wrinkles easily. However, a knitted linen doesn’t wrinkle as easily as a linen shirt. Linen knits feature a slight textured surface that adds depth to the garment.
Lamb’s wool is the soft wool obtained from lambs the very first time they are sheared and is the highest quality of sheep’s wool.Lamb’s wool fibres have a much smaller diameter than wool from older sheep, making the wool softer. With lamb´s wool it is less likely to feel that itch you can experience with other sheep wool.
Cotton comes from the cotton plants, and silk comes from the Bombyx Mori silkworm. The combination of these two can be called Cot silk, a fine and soft material.
