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 sweater for years.
Choose your colour and size
With this sweater you can choose for one color. The Dirko owes its natural color to the baambrugge sheep and alpaca, which means that it is not dyed.
