The loop scarf is nice and warm - and cuddly soft. An extra large portion of merino wool makes it the perfect companion on even the grayest of winter days.
The highlight of the loop scarf, however, are the great color effects that result from knitting with three differently colored threads. The casual coarse knit underlines this play of colors with its large stitches and makes every disana loop scarf unique.
Knitted very airy from fine 21.5 µ merino wool, it certainly won't scratch your neck - not even on men.
• Material: 100% organic Merino new wool, mulesing-free
• Washable - cold, hand wash best with wool detergent
The special properties of wool
Wool keeps you particularly warm because its naturally crimped fiber traps a lot of air. In addition, it is temperature-regulating and releases excess body heat to the cooler environment. Wool is therefore particularly suitable for textile processing.
Pure new wool also absorbs up to a third of its own weight in moisture vapor without feeling damp. At the same time, thanks to its lanolin content, the fiber protects against external moisture and allows drops of water to roll off the surface. Another main advantage of wool is its high resilience, which makes it practically wrinkle-free. And since wool does not charge electrostatically, it hardly attracts dirt and odors.
Care for Disana wool products
The chemical structure of wool is very similar to that of human hair. Therefore, as with washing your hair, cleaning should be as gentle as possible.
Since wool hardly absorbs dirt, the scales on the fiber surface literally repel dirt. Wool clothing only needs to be washed seldom, airing it out is usually enough. However, if woolen items have to be washed, natural wool should always be cleaned by hand at a maximum of 30 degrees. In addition, wool is sensitive to alkalis and therefore also to soap. To wash the wool, use a special wool detergent, e.g. disana wool shampoo.
To avoid matting, wool should not be soaked, rubbed, wrung, or brushed. Simply push through lightly with your hand. Drying in the sun, on the radiator or even in the tumble dryer is more likely to damage the fibres. It is best to place the wool item on a dry terry towel and let it dry in a shady, well-ventilated place.
