velvety soft merino wool of the extra class
the thicker version of Herbstwind
100% original Tasmanian Merino extrafine, the best Merino in the world, - coveted and precious - in handknit exclusively in the collection of Atelier Zitron
For six generations, the Hallet family has run Montacute Farm in Bothwell, a small town in the center of Tasmania's main island. Tasmania lies in the Indian Ocean about 240 km south of Australia.
The family's woolly roommates live completely free on an area of over 8000 hectares. The merino sheep are sheared once a year and contact with humans is reduced to compatible encounters.
The wool of these merino sheep has a wonderful feel, is bright and clean, exceptionally fine at 16 to 19 microns and consists of particularly long fibers.
The accredited Ecocert IMO Institute for Market Ecology inspects and monitors the soil conditions and species-appropriate animal husbandry of this region in Tasmania and guarantees mulesing-free animal husbandry.
The further processing of the wool into yarn takes place entirely in Germany according to the highest environmental and social standards.
