After being dyed in Austria, our organic wool yarn travels to the bordering country Slovakia, where our knitwear pieces come to life. The process of knitting involves a lot of steps and handwork. Even though the knitting is done by a machine, the loops have to be attached to the machines by hand - one by one. Therefore, most pieces (especially our Wool Wrap Top) take a lot of time and involve a lot of steps done by hand. 


We have forwarded the following questions to the knitting manufacturer in Slovakia and have compiled the answers below. Is there anything else that you would like to know? Please get in contact
