Our new ADF 530-32 ki BcW in gauge E20 provides the best base for the development of finest light-weight fabrics like our performance underwear shirt made of 100% merino wool:
This shirt is not just any garment—it's a high-quality favorite in a classic cut that can become a cherished basic for any occasion. Weighing only 160 g/m², it is the lightest of our shirt developments, offering unparalleled comfort and breathability.
Merino wool regulates temperature and moisture: it neither feels really wet nor too warm to wear if knitted with very fine spun yarns like WAGIN (Nm 80/1) from Suedwollegroup - especially in temperate climate which seems to be the most present due to increasing climate change.

Being designed and visualized in 3D prior to production and knitted in fully fashioned jersey we save and cherish the luxurous quality of merino wool and reduce our environmental footprint.
Merino wool is 100% natural, renewable and biodegradable.
"Wool is a natural protein fibre that is grown by domesticated sheep that produce a new fleece every year."
It can be recycled and re-used making it one of our first choices for sustainable garments.
The atmospheric carbon of wool fibres is natural, derived from pasture eaten by the sheep and in respect of the fibre's biodegradability can be called circular and neutral. This precious fibre prevents carbon dioxide from contributing to climate change for the entire lifetime of the fibre - which can be extended by everyone of us in the re-use of a garment, passing it on from generation to generation or recycling it into something new.

For us, wool is essential in sustainable and circular design.
"When a wool product reaches its end-of-life and is disposed of, the wool fibre readily decomposes in soil, slowly releasing valuable nutrients and carbon back into the earth, acting like a fertiliser."
