We combine wool with TENCEL® to get a lighter, softer and cooler feeling. This is a plated fabric where we knit with TENCEL®closest to body and the wool facing out, this makes the fabric softer to wear directly against the skin.

Wool and TENCEL® is a perfect match and both fibres have outstanding properties and complement each other:
• Wool blends with Tencel® provide even better moisture transport.
• Boiled Sport Loden garment with Tencel® on the inside feels softer against the skin.
• Tencel® closest to body also gives a cooler and more summery feeling.
TENCEL® branded lyocell fibres from the house of Lenzing. They are of botanic origin, since they are extracted from the raw material wood. Fibre production itself is extremely ecofriendly, due to the closed loop system. Textiles of TENCEL® fibres are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen.

COTTON – LINEN
Liegi is the name of our cotton/linen yarn in 70% cotton/30% linen where cotton is Öko-Tex certified. Compared to regular cotton, this yarn has a dryer and cooler summer feeling.
