We use a sustainable knitting manufacturing process of zero waste, meaning it is knitted to shape using an advanced programming of the knitting machine.

COLLECTION FEATURES

-Garments derived from flat-technology are more sustainable, due to minimum waste fabric. Use of only certified yarns with optimized spinning processes ensures sustainable development in methods and materials.

-The Nine ‘MUSES’ of the Greek Mythology were deities that gave artists, philosophers and individuals the necessary inspiration and imagination for creation.  In painting the Muses are usually presented as ethereal women with divine beauty, holding laurels and other items depending on their faculty. Terpsichore was the protector of dance; she invented dances, harp and education.  She was called Terpsichore because she was enjoying and having fun with dancing ( “Terpo” in Greek refers to be amused).  She was depicted wearing laurels on her head, holding a harp and dancing. Dancing is when the soul draws and the body transcends the physical and psychological rules that govern our senses.  This deliverance set us free to create prototypes and experiment with new materials and forms.  Then we begin to love life and understand products that are alive, that show traces of time and the hand of the maker.

PRODUCT CARE

We recommend cold hand wash with preferably an organic detergent and dry flat in shade for ultimate care of this item. Although it can be cold machine-washed in a delicate bag but please be careful with other clothing that has been washed in the machine, as the natural fibres will attract any excess lint. Do not tumble dry. Our products are manufactured for optimal performance, but take in mind that natural fibres have shorter length than synthetic fibres and a tendency to pilling, while ensuring breathability of your body in contrary to synthetics. See below more about pilling and how to take care. Take care on sharp objects, nails and jewelery when wearing knitted products, so not to catch and pull the yarns.

Pilling* is caused by rubbing during wear and, although it can occur in any parts of the sweater, the most common areas are around the elbows, armpits, sleeves, belly and the sides of the sweater where, during wear, the arms of the garment are constantly coming into contact with the body of the sweater.

Because pilling is so complex, nobody can guarantee that it won’t occur, but there are a number of ways to prevent pilling. There are also methods to remove pills if they have been formed.

How to prevent pilling when wearing wool

  1. Turn your wool clothes inside-out before washing
  2. Avoid using a fabric softener
  3. Try to minimise abrasion when wearing wool clothing

How to remove pilling in 3 easy ways

  1. If not too many pills have been formed then they can easily be removed by hand. This should be done routinely after drying, or just prior to ironing.
  2. A comb can be used to remove pills, but this should be done very gently and carefully.
  3. Small battery operated pill and lint removal devices known as either “de-pillers” or “fabric shavers” are low cost and very effective at removing pills, giving your clothing an as-new appearance again.

How to understand which wool is better?

  1. Use longer fibres**
  2. Use the highest twist factor you can handle
  3. Use fabrics with a higher cover factor

**Different types of wool

Not all wool is the same. Some wool is softer than cashmere, while others are hardier and more resilient, suitable for carpets and bedding. Wool can be divided into three main categories, based on the micron (diameter) of each fibre. One micron is equal to one millionth of a metre and fibre length is recorded in millimetres – these are the main measurements which determine the quality and use of the wool.

  • Fine: Wool with the finest micron comes from Merino sheep and is used for high-quality, soft-handling fabrics and knitting yarns. Fine wool is highly valued by the world’s leading fashion houses and is the hero ingredient of many Woolmark collaborations. The finest/smaller the micron, it classifies merino wool to fine, extrafine, superfine and ultra fine.
  • Medium: Medium micron wool can be produced from a type of Merino or produced by crossing one breed with another (crossbreeding). Medium wools are used in a variety of woven apparel cloths, knitting yarns and furnishings.
  • Broad: Many different sheep breeds produce broader wools. Often these breeds are known as dual-purpose breeds because they are farmed with equal emphasis on meat and wool. Broad wool is useful for products such as carpets because of its strength and durability.

The average micron of human hair is between 50 to 100 micron. Merino wool is generally less than 22 micron, which shows just how soft this premium fibre is.

Natural versus synthetic fibres

Natural fibres are produced by animals (wool) and plants (cotton) as fibrous materials that can be spun into yarn. Characteristics of natural fibres are that they:

  • Serve a purpose in nature;
  • Are produced by a living organism; and
  • Grow spontaneously, without need for human intervention.

Synthetic fibres are derived from fossil-fuelled/petroleum-based oils.
