Clothing comfort
The combination of linen and wool is very comfortable in every season. The effect of the light weight ‘cool wool’ that can be worn all year round is enhanced by the linen, that always feels fresh. Despite the fact that this fabric contains a high percentage of linen (57%) the creasing is limited because of the natural elasticity of the wool.

Ecology
The GOTS certification means that the wool comes from organic sheep farming and that it is not chemically treated. Organic sheep farming is animal-friendly and prohibits the practice of mulesing. For the organic flax it means that no harmful pesticides have been used in growing the fibres. The certification is also your guarantee that throughout the entire production process the highest social and ecological standards were observed. This includes the dyeing process. The brown and white colours yarns have been obtained only by using eco-friendly oxygen bleaching and skin-friendly dyes, permitted in the GOTS standard.

Origin of the fibres
The wool is South-American merino wool. Mulesing is never practiced on this continent because the blow flie strikes that have led to this practice in Australia are not found here.
The organic flax is grown in the EU.
