The Royal Wedding relaunches angora

The quantity of angora that one can extract from the animal, though, is limited to its dimensions and the few annual sheds, making this yarn a luxury product. Adriafil presents angora in the classic colours white and cream (see picture)and in a whole range of classic and fashionable ones.

The thinness of the fibre in Adriafil pure wool yarns

The caption on a label that states "Merino wool" is often not sufficient to determine the good quality of a yarn. One can find good merino wools but also ordinary ones. Unfortunately many people play on this perception of good quality based only on the name of the origin of the sheep. The degree of thinness of a fibre plays an important role in determining the quality of the wool. This can vary depending on the age of the animal, but also from the number of sheds and from its life conditions. The unit of measurement with which we determine the diameter of the fibres is the MICRON, that measures length in thousandth of a millimeter in the metric system. The less the thickness of a fibre, the more the softness of it. If a fibre is too thick, it can irritate the nerve cells of the skin - it is the case of some classic sheep wools, the thickness of which can measure up to 40 micron. Adriafil uses exclusively merino wool at low micronage, well known for the softness of its fibre. Thanks to the thinness, merino fibres (their thickness is established between 19 and 25 micron) folds themself when they touch the skin, avoiding to sting it. For those that can not perceive the lightness of such a measurement, just think that a human hair, in our opinion soft and light, measures from 50 to 100 micron! Clearly, extracting and treating merino wool is more expensive than a more standard wool, but thanks to this factor among others, the result on your skin will be much more pleasant.
