We are using nature-based materials with minimal ecological impact. With our Finnish lamb wool products we combine only organic , GOTS certificated yarns (Global organic textile standard yarns) or natural European linen.
100% Finnish lamb wool
The wellbeing of Finnish animals is secured through legislation and is monitored continuously. Finnsheep is genetically closer to the wild sheep than most of the domestic European sheep breeds. Sheep breading is naturally very ecological and provides the animal with an opportunity for circumstances and life typical for the species in nature. When using 100% combed Finnish lamb wool, our production can be tracked down all the way from the farmhouse to the finished product. Finnish lamb wool is also an example of using recourses wiser: approximately 80% of Finnish Lamb wool is thrown away as a waste
The wool is obtained from Finnsheep breed is known for its quality. By combining the knowledge of local spinners, weavers and designers we renewed this traditional material into fine and versatile combed wool, which has many attractive attributes:
-As being non-treated material it is has very delicate and natural hand feel and beautiful natural shades from white to greyish black and brown
- The Finnish lambwool yarn we use has 3% of lanoline left in it, which makes it extra soft and gentle to the skin (by default the wool industry chemically extracts lanoline from the wool and sells it forward for the cosmetic industry)
-Finnish lamb wool is used almost year around in the variable climate conditions of the North, so it has water repellent properties too.
