Virgin wool
What is virgin wool?
Virgin wool is a guarantee of quality. This term refers to wool from the first shearing. It is a wool pleasant to wear, resistant and of very good quality. Virgin wool is a 100% natural and biodegradable fiber.

The properties of virgin wool
Virgin wool is a warm fiber naturally breathable. It is a fiber that retains heat through its insulating properties. Heat is retained while perspiration evaporates naturally through this natural fiber.

Different ways to work with wool
Virgin wool offers many fabric possibilities depending on the spinning process and weaving. Wool can be finished in different ways for very different results. The ALLEGORIE coat is cut in an ochre boiled wool fabric while the AMBLIGONE long coat is made in a wool gabardine style with a diagonal weave and a smooth texture.

Wool can also be worked with patterns. Vertical and horizontal weaving of different colored yarns allows to form different patterns such as checks and Prince of Wales. The DISTANCE long coat is a particularly warm coat thanks to its faux fur collar and 100% new wool. The Prince of Wales pattern is assembled in an original way on the DECIMAL coat for a warm and bold new wool coat.

Alpaca wool
What is alpaca wool ?
Alpaca wool is wool shorn not from a sheep but from an alpaca. Alpacas live mainly in Peru, Chile and Bolivia. They are part of the camelid family with llamas, guanacos and vicuñas. The Incas considered alpaca wool as the fiber of the gods.

Properties of alpaca wool
Alpacas live in the Andes at an altitude of over 4000m. Their wool is particularly light and warm. Its thermal insulation power is impressive.

Unlike sheep's wool, alpaca wool does not contain lanolin, a fatty substance found in wool that can cause allergic reactions. Alpaca wool is therefore naturally hypoallergenic.

Eco-responsible alpaca breeding
Alpaca herds live in harmony with their environment in the Andes. Alpacas graze on grass instead of pulling it up and their nails do little damage to the soil unlike their hooves.

Alpaca farms are mainly located in South America, in Peru, Bolivia, Chile and Ecuador. The production of alpaca wool generates jobs and added value in the country.

Alpaca coats
In the fall/winter women's collection, alpaca wool is worked in a hairy or bouclette style. The SPIRALE mid-length coat is made of navy blue alpaca wool in a hairy style. The rendering is totally different from the short hooded coat BOULE in bouclette wool containing alpaca.
