The fibers of this Merino wool measure 18.5 microns thick and undergo the carding process, giving the material a fuzzy, soft texture.
The raw material of our Chunky Wool is a fully traceable Australian Merino Wool that we source with full respect for animals, land and people.
It’s a carded yarn that is composed of fibers that have an irregular orientation: shorter fibers, called "open," are blended with longer fibers, called "top." This gives the yarn, and consequently the knit, more chunkiness and fuzziness.
It is a material that resists the signs of aging, and the feel to the touch improves wash after wash.
With great thermal properties
The carding process brings the finest fibers to the surface and traps microscopic air bubbles inside the yarn, allowing it to stay warm longer.
A process that reduces waste
Carded wool is considered more sustainable than classic worsted wool because some of the waste generated by the machines used to comb the wool is reused in carding.
Spun in Italy
This wool is washed, dyed and spun entirely in Biella Piedmont, in the Lanecardate spinning mill.
