Wool 18,5 micron
Our garments are all made using high quality wool, which is entirely produced in Biella, and considered by many one of the best materials available, both in Italy and internationally.
The yarn obtained is a very precious Super 100’s, and it comes from selected italian farms.
The use of natural fibres is what allows us to take advantage of the already existing, amazing resources of nature itself, and to create an extremely resistant and durable product.
We are already aware of the special characteristics that made wool fundamental for the development of our societies.
A recent research by the International Wool Textile Organisation highlights how “wool has many natural properties, which have been beneficial for our health, our well-being and comfort”.
Among these properties we find high absorbency and protection from UVAs. Wool is also water-repellent and has a high thermal coefficient: it can trap air by natural insulation, regulating it’s internal temperature, making it perfect to wear in warm or cold weather.
Nature is an important presence, ever changing, and it greatly influences the way of life of the local families.
Biella’s industrial tradition is epitomized by the processing of wool, considered a precious raw material.
Local creativity produces unique mixtures of color and designs, which are used to enhance this ductile natural fiber that possesses unique properties of thermo-regulation and resilience.

A Km 0 supply chain for the true connoisseurs of this noble and naturally technical fiber whose intrinsic qualities have gained worldwide recognition and appreciation.
The production of high quality merino wool depends on good animal husbandry and land management to grow healthy fibers on healthy animals in a healthy ecosystem. To ensure this, we exclusively use yarns certified according to the SustainaWOOL GREEN, RWS and NATIVA standards. All our merino wool is sourced from farms who do not practice mulesing and is free of harmful substances according to the OEKOTEX 100 Standard.
High merino wool quality leads to exceptional durability of the knitwear we produce. Merino wool is a renewable natural resource, it can be recycled and is biodegradable.
A traditional material, ready for the future.
Everybody has memories that resurface when stimolated by a certain perfume and we’d like to believe that ours will bring many. The name of this fragrance comes from the height of the peak that is closest to the heart of the people of Biella, Mount Mucrone, whose imposing figure stands out on all the sorrounding valleys, also representing a key element in the culture of this area. Our essence reproduces the feeling of a hike through those birch woods, between mountain berries, flowers with fragrant petals and the resin of pine needles fallen on the soft moss.
Still wool for an ancient piece and at the same time innovative : our 3D PLAID
It’s often cold in Biella, not only during the winter.
While laying comfortably in front of the fireplace, cuddled up with a book or a glass of wine, a warm wool blanket is the best thing one could desire.
Then maybe a friend decides to stay over for the night, or you just want to take a nice nap: we give you Così Cozy.
Così Cozy is a 3D PLAID made by using precious wool or cotton denim fabrics.
