Natural and eco-friendly manufactured wools
All products of La Maison de la Maille are made from natural and eco-friendly wools.
The wool shearing is essential to keep the well-being of animals. We make a priority out of working with labelled players, that can guaranty good treatment for the animals.
As for our recycled wools, they are produced by recycling new knitting offcuts.
Whether it is about our recycled wools, Merino or Alpaca, we select the one suppliers able to produce a satisfactory thread in terms of our policy for quality, traceability and responsibility.
This ecological and innovative thread registers with the idea of a Circular Economy.
It was created with our partner Les Filatures du Parc, located in Brassac in the Tarn region. A unique process of recycling offcuts of newly made knittings – coming from European knittings workshops – was developed there.
As a true upgrade of the fabric, this process is one of a kind.
These threads ensure the great quality of this resistant set of blankets.
Merino Wool allows to get a very soft thread. It is then worked by Baruffa, an Italian weaving mill founded in 1850 and committed to a sustainable development policy.
Rigorously selected, those extra long and thin fibres come from animals bred and pampered in Australia.
Highly permeable, this wool is naturally flexible and very resistant.
Thermoregulating, it is warm yet very light.
Rare and coveted, this exceptional thread comes from the very first shearing of the grown-up camelid living on the high Andes.
These animals produce a very high quality thread, known for its resistance, its fluffiness and great softness; not to forget its hypoallergenic properties.
This exceptional wool comes from Peru (We are now in the process of selecting a new weaving mill, for more transparency and always more quality, stay tuned). It is certified organic and fair trade.
In order to preserve their natural qualities, these threads are not dyed thus keeping the natural fibres colours of the animals.
