This sustainable blend of organic merino (70%) and fine alpaca (30%) comes undyed in its natural wool and alpaca colours. The various colours of the jacquard are created by the animals’ natural wool colouring. This means that neither dyestuff nor chemicals are necessary for the production, and the product is recyclable and biodegradable, even in household compost. Thanks to its knitted and felted design, the softshell felt is suitable for a wide range of applications, being windproof and water-repellent to a large extent, and at the same time very warm. With Schoeller’s EXP wool treatment process the merino wool can be treated chlorine-free. 100% no mulesing wool, spun in Europe.
