Woolfolk Collection FW 2014 is an inspired collection of modern minimal pieces, articulated in interesting textures. The clean lines and innovative construction techniques are the perfect forum for Woolfolk’s luxurious fiber, and the garments are meant to be worn and treasured.
Our own designer Nina Shishkoff came up with this lovely unisex pattern, the Man oh Man Scarf. It's knit with the Woolfolk FÅR and makes a great first cable project.
The presence of coarse fibers in wool create “prickle”-- the main obstacle to wearing and working with wool. Most wool products have a high percentage of over 30 microns - the diameter measure of a strand of fiber. Ultimate Merino® has a micron count of 17.5, and combines the hand of cashmere with the wear of merino. The long cylindrical fibers, with a surface that is smoother due to elongated, flat scales, reflect light and absorb dye better than elliptical fibers, resulting in lustrous yarns with deep and lasting hues.
“Ultimate Merino’s unique cylindrical structure and long flat scales allow the lustrous fiber to accept dyes with exceptional permanence and depth of color.”
