    Treated in Verviers

    Wool is an exceptional natural fibre. It is renewable, biodegradable, flame resistant, able to absorb toxic chemicals and to control the humidity. Its crimp and its elasticity make it very bulky and comfortable.

    Cashmere is the fine undercoat fibres produced by the cashmere goat living in Asia (China, Mongolia, Iran, Afghanistan…). It has a diameter of 14 to 19 µ and therefore is used in luxury products famed for their comfort, their light weight and their warmth.
