Push the boundaries of what is technically possible! Discover lightweight Merino fabrics as you never have before.

Our quality ‚Jackson Nm 60/1‘ combines content ratios of twelve per cent of the finest silk that enriches 88 per cent Merino wool. Together these fibres create a yarn that is immensely durable, highly abrasion resistant, lightweight and significantly reduced pilling is achieved. In addition these natural components are 100% biodegradable! Silk is also well-known as ‚natural nylon‘.

Jury Statement

We were impressed by this new fabric combination of silk and merino wool. Innovative application of existing twisted spinning technologies makes it possible to avoid using polyester without sacrificing performance or functionality so that it’s still very durable. The silk/merino wool fabric is pleasant to wear and cooling next the skin.
