100% Virgin wool (Organic Merino superfine)
Our Merino Baby is of course mulesing-free and the fibre is GOTS-certified. This means that the animals are kept according to ecological standards. Through sustainable farming, woolgrowers are able to protect and regenerate the land, and care for the health and wellbeing of their sheep. The merino sheep that provide the wool graze freely, delivering a new fleece harvest twice a year.
Furthermore, no toxic bleaches, dyes or other chemicals are used in the manufacturing process. The wool is spun and dyed according to our specifications in Italy in a mill which uses traditional machinery and craftmanship and which is also GOTS certified.
