100% pure natural wool from Germany
Sustainable yarn that does not require long transport routes, raw material imports and exploitation was just wishful thinking for a long time.
Of her own accord and after many long hikes, countless exciting encounters and a lot of effort, Dagmar from Maehrle wolle managed to win wool from German sheep and traditional shepherds and process it here in Germany and our neighboring countries.
A lot of passion paired with careful treatment of the raw material
and a lot of expertise from the shepherds are the cornerstones of the concept.

100% virgin wool

The Albschaf wool consists of 100% pure new wool (Virgin Wool) from sheep in the Swabian Alb. It is made of soft merino wool, which is therefore also suitable for textiles that are worn next to the skin.
The dyeing technique gives the surface a beautiful batik effect.
The yarn was sheared, spun and dyed exclusively in Germany.
