Lana Merino The Merino wool comes from Merino sheep, a fine wool breed of sheep that provides the most high-quality wool. Outstanding characteristics of fine merino wool are marked uniformity and high elasticity. In addition, it’s light and soft texture provides a scratch-free comfort. Due to the strong curling of Merino wool fibers, it is caused air pockets that provide a very effective temperature control and a very good breathability.
Polyamide Is a synthetic fiber, in particular, is used as a component of mixed yarns, because of their specific propertie. Polyamide is characterized especially by a high resilience, low tendency to crease and low weight. Compared to other synthetic fibers such as acrylic, polyamide is extremely durable and robust. By blending with natural fibers, polyamide increases durability of the yarn.
Acrylic Acrylic fiber is a synthetic fiber that closely resembles wool in its character. According to the definition of the ISO (International Standards Organization) and BISFA (International Synthetic Fiber Standardization Office), fibers which contain a minimum of 85% acrylonitrile in their chemical structure are called "Acrylic Fibers". Acrylic fiber is composed of acrylonitrile and a comonomer. The comonomer is added to improve dyeability and the textile processability of the acrylic fiber. Acrylic fiber can be used 100% alone, or in blends with other natural and synthetic fibers.
