Wool

ORGANIC WOOL IS PRODUCED ETHICALLY AND IT WARMS YOUR BODY AND SOUL

Our wool is ethically produced organic merino wool. The wool is produced in South America, Argentina and Uruguay. There are many aspects included in ecological production e.g. environmental and social factors, which our supplier supports by getting  raw material from producers using this method of production. The organic merino wool is produced according to the criteria of IVN (Internationaler Verband der Naturtextilwirtschaft e.V.). The yarn is spun by a german spinnery, and it is certified by IMO (Institute for Marketecology). More about organic wool: www.naturtextil.com and www.imo.ch Merno wool

The superior qualities of wool are many...

Wool feels soft, elastic and pleasant - Lets air through and does not cause perspiration - Absorbs moisture without feeling wet, warms you even when damp - Neutralises skin excretions - Fire resistant. The sheep is man's oldest domestic animal. Its wool has been used for clothing by man for as long as 10,000 years. Scientists around the world are trying to copy the properties of wool with man-made fibres, but without success.

 Wool is inimitable...

The reasons for the unique characteristics of wool are to be found in its chemical and physical properties: crimp, elasticity and an ability to absorb moisture which cannot be matched. The crimp derives from the difference in tension between the ortocortex and paracortex of the main tissue. Products made of crimped wool are porous, enhancing thermal insulation. The crimp also gives the fibres elasticity and resilience. Because of the elasticity, the insulating properties of wool do not fade with time and use. Wool does not crease and quickly returns to shape.

Wool is a warm fibre...

 After absorbing moisture, chemical reactions take place in its fibres. These reactions release heat and make the fibre feel warm against the skin. Wool is capable of absorbing up to 35 per cent water without feeling damp.

Silk

Silk feels luxurious...

Silk binds and retains heat, breathes naturally, and is cool in hot weather and warm in cold. Silk fibre binds plenty of air into itself, which acts as heat insulation.

Thank to its fibre´s smoothness and lightness, silk feels warmer than wool and its surface cools wonderfully the hot skin.

Silk is suitable even to to the most sensitive skin. Our manufacturer uses pure real silk which is still containing some sericin i.e. silk glue. Silk also consists of the same elements as human skin, and therefore its lovely touch makes it feel like a second skin.

The so-called Shappe silk, used by our suppliers, has been spun from the filaments brushed from  the cocoon surface, which still contains 3-5 % sericine. In the silk industry the sericine usually is  removed by cooking, and kept as a highly appreciated rawmaterial for the cosmetic industry. When a new silk garment is moist or wet, the smell of sericin is noticeable, but it will fade after a few washes.

Our silk products have not been chemically treated during production and the silk thread we are using has been given the safe textile certificate Öko-Tex Standard 100.

SilkWool

An excellent combination..

 *70 % merino wool
 *30 % silk

Our silk wool garments are made of mixture of real silk and soft merino wool. Silk wool combines the best characteristics of both these natural fibres: it warms and feels comfortably soft against your skin.

Cotton

WE USE PURE INDIAN ORGANIC COTTON

Ecological cotton cultivation in a nutshell..

* biological pest control
* organic fertilising
* crop rotation
* picked by hand
* social responsibility for the farmers and their families

The portion of cotton in the amount of textile fibre produced in the world is close to one half. It is therefore a very important cultivated plant. The portion of the organic cultivation is however only under a percentage, but the demand and sales for organic cotton has risen strongly over the last years.

Indian Gulab Rubsingh is one of the over 8000 contract cultivators, who produce organic cotton for BioRe. The company is Swiss textile company Remei AG’s Indian joint enterprise. Rubsingh has improved economically after they moved into producing organic cotton in 2004. Chemical farming was found to be too expensive and the harvests were not very good. When using chemical fertilisers, there is a great need for a lot of water. The same concerns pesticides. The substances are expensive and for these, an expensive loan is required.

Organic farming requires only work.  The pesticides are prepared on location from natural raw materials, for example from the neem-tree, okra, onion and chilli etc. Rubsingh consider it important that the organic fertilisers and pesticide materials are safe to use. Villagers have experienced diverse irritations caused by chemical fertilisers. These have resulted in illness and dizziness.

BioRe’s cotton weaving plant in Kasrawad, is India’s first cotton handling agency, which has been awarded the A-8000 standard. The agency holds fast regulated work times, a guaranteed minimum wage and does not utilise child labour. You can read more on Indian organic cotton at www.remei.ch

 

 

 

 




Washing and Handling Natural Fibres

Please handle fine textiles with the respect they deserve.

Organic cotton


Please wash garments of organic cotton in the washing machine at 40 to 60 °C with ecological SONETT washing agent. Do not spin dry a garment made of organic cotton. Shape the garment into its form when damp and let dry on a clothesline. Iron from the reverse side, using the temperature for cotton.

Wool and Silk

The starting point in the care of Merino wool, silkwool, and silk garments is to understand that they do not need such frequent washing as cotton clothing. They do not become dirty as easily as some other materials; in fact they repel dirt. Wool and silk like to be aired. They share the unique quality of renewal, they are capable of cleaning themselves with oxygen. When you have two sets of woollen or silk underwear in a daily wearing and airing routine, they stay hygienic and fit for use for several days, often even for 2 to 3 weeks without washing. It is commonly thought that garments become clean only at high temperatures. From the point of hygiene, wool and silk do not require washing by boiling - indeed, that would spoil them. They are dirt-repellent and do not offer any culture medium for bacteria or spores. It is important that you use a biological washing agent which enhances dirt removal, for example Eucalan Woolwash(for wool only), SONETT olive washing agent(for all fine fibres) or Gall Soap (for stains). Chemical detergents are harmful to wool and silk. In wool, they cause intertwining of fibres and felting. Silk does not felt, but the fibre does become hard. It is recommended to wash woollen and silk garments by hand. Squeeze the garment lightly but avoid rubbing, rinse 2 to 3 times. If you use soap, it is advisable to add a drop of vinegar to the rinsing water to neutralise any lime remaining from the soap. Carefully squeeze the water out of the garment but avoid wringing, stretch the garment into its appropriate measurements lengthways. Spread it to dry but not in direct sunlight or close to an oven or other source of heat. Our natural white woollen garments have not been non-felt processed. If you wish to wash them in a machine, you should prepare for shrinking by choosing a slightly larger size at the time of purchase. The garments of our Little Bear and FOREST collections tolerate machine washes well; please use a delicate wool wash programme. The garments shrink slightly in the first wash.

What about moths and fur beetles?

Moths and fur beetles which use wool as their source of nourishment are frequent visitors in urban conditions. Therefore, when you stop the frequent use of a woollen garment, keep it in a tightly closed bag. You can also deter moths and fur beetles by placing cedar rings in your wardrobe.
