Cool sweater made of Dutch wool

Dirko

The Dirko is our best-selling traditional Dutch sweater made from 80% Dutch wool and 20% Alpaca. This mix of fibers gives the Dirko a unique mix of properties: the Dutch wool offers a tougher appearance, which is then softened by the addition of the alpaca. This sweater is unisex and has raglan sleeves and a higher ribbed collar.

All our products are developed and knitted in our mini factory in Baambrugge.

The special properties of Dutch wool and alpaca

Wool from Dutch sheep is not often seen in clothing production, even within the Netherlands. Dutch wool is characterized by a tougher appearance due to its coarser fibers and hence is seen as too rough and itchy to wear against the skin. This view has led to the devaluation of Dutch wool and the disappearance of the Dutch wool industry altogether. 

In our products, we utilize this overlooked local resource by looking for varieties with a lower itch factor as well as combining our Dutch wool with other fibers like merino and alpaca. This mix of fibers allows our products to have the traditional appearance of Dutch wool while adding a level of softness.

Additionally alpaca is hypoallergenic and has antibacterial properties so garments hardly need to be washed; airing them out is often more than enough. This way your favorite sweater will last for generations.
