ABOUT IVANHOE

The family firm of Ivanhoe was founded in 1946 in Gällstad, a district known as Sweden’s own knitting centre, where tradition and pioneering spirits still live on. Several generations experience and competence enable us to continously develop both base and functional garments. The classic materials, such as wool and cotton, can always be found in our collections, but we also incorporate new blends, treatments or knitting and weaving techniques.

WHY WOOL

WOOL - A WOOLDERFUL MATERIAL

Wool is a renewable and natural material, which makes it one of our most sustainable material resources in the world. Wool is a high tech fibre with oh so many positive aspects, here are some of THEM.

A LIVING MATERIAL

WOOL is a living material that adjusts to your body temperature. When it is warm, moisture and body heat is absorbed by the wool and transported away from the body. When it is cold, warmth is retained in the millions of microscopic air pockets naturally found in wool.

ABSORBENCY CREATES COMFORT

When wool absorbs moisture, it produces heat so it will keep you warm even when it’s wet. Wool can absorb 30% of it’s own weight in moisture without feeling damp.

MICRON

A micron (micrometre) is the measurement used to express the diameter of a wool fibre. The lower microns are the finer and softer are the fibres. Micron counts typically range from around 18 to 35, but can be as low as 10!

SELF-CLEANING

Wool is easy to take care of, self-cleaning and doesn’t smell bad. The keratin in wool actually breaks down the bad smelling bacteria from your skin naturally.
