Lavalan® - the wool insulation
Synthetic materials are often used for glove insulations, but this is not the case for the Lavalan® insulation. The filling is made of renewable and 100% natural resources, namely real sheep wool. Even the binder is a natural product – it’s cornstarch.
Wool is with its numerous characteristics a natural “high-tech” fiber. It ensures comfortable warmth, is fast drying, breathable and water-resistant. Another nice feature is that wool is odour-neutralising and prevents the formation of bacteria. So to say a real natural talent.
The wool is sourced after the highest quality and animal welfare standards and exclusively originate from European countries, like Austria, Switzerland, France, Germany and Scandinavia. It is clear, that the animals are not tortured neither during breeding nor the shearing process – European wool is mulesing-free
The shorn wool can be delivered by the the sheep farmers to collection points. In the United Kingdome and in Belgium the wool will be scoured and the german company Baur Vliesstoffe manufactures the Lavalan® Insulation. An independent Swiss company certifies the supply chain; thus the origin of the wool can be proved.
