I like to work with the multiple combinations of yarns related to extra fine merino carded wool and various blends or pure yarns. As a reference I have reliable suppliers, aware of the value of the material, from which I can freely choose some traditional yarns, that I have experienced over the years. I carefully select the materials and colours from colour charts, available and renewed in the current season. I use dyed yarn, wich is necessary to assure solidity and purity of the colour; neutral tones that are flanked by vibrant and luminous nuances, instilling sensations of sober intimacy and lightness.
Each product is the expression of traditional skills and technological craftsmanship: try and experience! My products are made in small quantities to offer attention to the “detail”, with special care to hand finishes. A history, a working method, a creative and manufacturing capability, suitable for the needs of a demanding customer.

Story on the blanket
It is not just a textile furnishing accessory, it is a complex product, an ally of nature, a symbolic object, an inseparable friend. It is the result of textile technologies and experiences that have a history: a valuable commodity that lasts over time and is perceived as a quality garment.
In 1954, Linus Van Pelt, a key character in Peanuts (created by Charles Schulz) appears next to his inevitable blue blanket. More than a tool, the “security blanket” is a totem, the identification of the satisfaction of the need for protection.
Let’s think about how the blanket accompanies us throughout our life: from birth (wrapped in a blanket) and for the rest of the days during sleep, we are “sheltered” by something. For this reason, beyond taste, material, models and styles, it is an object present in various ethnic groups at any latitude.
Pure wool, first of all: the basic concept in choosing a wool blanket: the raw material is natural. The blanket season is a concept that has evolved in recent times; thanks to the evolution of comfort in homes, heating and changes in consumption habits, often preferring the use of a duvet.
Insulating and healthy: the wool blanket maintains the temperature of the body, favoring the sensation of keeping it warm. It is also a hypoallergenic product and in this specific case, extra-fine merino wool has anti-mite properties, i.e. the absence of moisture and heat, a problem that concerns mattresses and cushions.
Eco-sustainable: this aspect is not alwaysconsidered; in the case of wool, it is the least invasive natural product, for the life cycles of the land of animals and humans: farming and non-cultivation, no fertilizers and wasted water. The breeding is cyclical, as the animal survives the shearing.
The maintenance of the blanket: depending on the type of wool, it can be washed with water at 30 degrees or dry cleaned. It is a good habit to air it every now and then. A clarification: the ‘pilling’ effect does not derive from the quality but is an intrinsic characteristic of the knitted fabric. The blanket lives with us and the wear and tear in the time is the consequence (the problem may be solved with the use of a specific tool available).
