Organic merino wool

 
Wool has been used for as long as 10,000 years. Wool has amazing charecteristics that are to be found in its crimp, elasticity and an ability to absorb moisture which cannot be matched with any man made fibers. 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, so it is always warm. 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. It can absorb up to 40% of its own weight of moisture without feeling cold or wet. It also does not smell.
 
The merino wool with fibre thickness less than 20 microns is extremely soft, thin and has long fibers which makes the merino wool non itchy. Being the softest wool of all wool types, merino wool is in most cases also suitable for allergic skin also because wool itself does not contain ingredients to cause allergic reactions.
 
If woollen underwear itches, it can be placed into a lanolin bath that is treated with a softening wool care agent and its surface will become smooth as velvet. Cotton or silk underwear can be worn under the woollens if your skin is particularly sensitive or allergic to lanolin. The organic merino wool used by Ruskovilla has no moth protection or non-felting treatment so it is safe for even babies.

Airing helps to remove odours. is suitable for machine wash with delicate wool and handwash programs. Wash wool preferably by hand in lukewarm water (30 C)
 
Our wool is ethically produced organic merino wool ( mulesing free ). 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 we wish to support by getting our raw material from producers using this method of production. Ruskovilla 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).These ethically produced garments will warm your body and your soul.
