The amazing properties of Dutch wool
Wool of traditional Dutch sheep has the characteristic of having a tougher appearance due to its sturdy wool hairs. The alpaca wool is light, super soft, and strong. This makes a perfect match. It has a beautiful texture, is elastic, and regulates humidity. This wool cools you down in summer and keeps you comfortably warm in winter. On top of all this, wool has antibacterial qualities and it’s completely biodegradable. It requires little care, as wool is self cleaning, so some fresh air is enough to keep enjoying your favourite item for years.
The mittens are 3D knitted which means they are completely seamless. After production they are washed in a special manner. This causes the fibers to felt a little bit, making them more windproof.
