The production of the Lupin Merino & Tencel Tee is progressing and we have just approved the labdips which is the process where a small piece of fabric is coloured following our suggested Pantone code.
We have decided to call this blend of merino & tencel for the Swedish word Äng.
It is a 170g/sqm fabric and the main fiber, 60%, is merino wool. Merino wool has some of the most astonishing qualities. It is a great insulator and has at the same time, great evaporate properties. This means that when in cold climate, merino wool keeps you warm and when in warm climate, merino wool cools you down.
It is also naturally anti-bacterial which means that you can wear your t-shirt longer without starting to smell. Merino wool is an organic and sustainable fiber and we have sourced the highest quality wool, guaranteed mulesing free.
The other 40% of our blend is tencel. Tencel is a cellulose fiber that comes from the raw material wood. It is such a fine fiber that it is soft like silk to your skin.
Not only is tencel extremely smooth, it has also really good absorbent and evaporate properties. This means that it helps the merino wool to regulate your temperature and keeping you, not too warm, not too cold. Just like merino wool the tencel fiber is an organic and sustainable fiber.
Stay tuned for the next steps where we will visit the knitting factory in Marbäck and check out the process when the fabric is being produced.
