Exclusively superfine quality 18.5 micron Merino wool is used to manufacture our knitwear.
Wool quality depends on how fine the single fibres growing on the sheep are. Merino sheep grow some of the finest wool fibres in the world. Among these merino fibres there is a small fraction of superfine fibres below the width of 18.5 micron, less than a third of a human hair. This rare raw material is used to produce the precious Super 100’s yarns we knit our apparel from.
In contrast to higher diameter wool fibres, superfine 18.5 micron merino wool fibres bend more readily and are therefore very gentle when worn directly on the skin. This is further assisted by the natural crimps of merino wool fibres further improving skin feel and providing a superiorly supple and itch-free wool experience.
