Tirol Wool: the wool that offers warmth, breathability and insulation

Wool is the perfect insulation fiber due to its outstanding thermal properties and excellent climate control. Our TirolWool comes from mountain sheep raised in South Tirol (Brillenschafe) and Austrian Tirol (Bergschafe) where they have been used to make warm clothing for many centuries. 

Tyrolean mountain sheep spend their summer grazing at about 2.000 meters above sea level, between Kitzbühel Alps, Oetztal Alps and Zillertal Alps, eating only the best fodder. The healthy air, the plentiful food and the fresh water of Tyrolean mountains foster the good health of the animals, which is needed in the challenge to survive in an habitat sometimes very hostile.

When the grazing season ends, the sheep are hosted in the stables, created for them following established standards. The shearing of the animals takes place twice a year, at an interval of six months; the first during the winter season when the sheep are in the stables, and the second towards summer, in the pastures.

The good treatment of the animals allows the development of an high quality wool characterized by a fleece with long and lightly wavy.
