Focus on Wool, the flagship material of our collections

Wool is a natural fibre that has been used for thousands of years; from antiquity, its astonishing properties have still not been matched by synthetic fibres. Loved for its quality, warmth and great resistance, wool is famous for his properties; it maintains the body to a constant temperature and helps the skin to breathe and evacuate perspiration.

Wool and its manufacturing secrets

The wool is first sheared, then sorted by batch according to quality and washed. The wool then has to be disentangled, this process is called carding; the wool passes through a carding machine (drums lined with very fine steel spikes rotating at high speed, dividing and parallelizing the wool fibres and retaining any plant impurities that may have remained). Finally, the fibres are transformed into yarn; the spinning process. The wool is then treated and dyed to obtain its final colour.

Wool is very often mixed with other synthetic or natural fibres to make it softer or softer.

At Pipolaki, our hats are made from the finest materials.

Merino Wool

It comes from a breed of sheep coming mainly from Australia which offers a very insulating, comfortable, resistant and temperature-regulating wool.
The fineness of merino wool makes it more pleasant on the skin than classic wool.
