The best wool sweater!
This sweater is very sturdy, but nicely soft. You feel the quality. It doesn’t start to deform and this
one doesn’t itch like some other wool sweaters. It’s not the better sweater, but for me it is the best sweater.
Love that it is 100% merino wool!
I love this sweater. I have worn blends with 50% merino wool, but this is a sweater from a different
level. It doesn’t stretch as much as other sweaters, but that gives it a
qualitative feel. It’s easy to combine to everything. I’m a fan!
This jumper lives up to the promise!
I was skeptical about the "no pilling" claim. But it is completely true. The jumper is warm and soft, but after wearing it for an entire winter, it still looks
PHIL, THE BETTER MERINO WOOL SWEATER
Maximal comfort with minimal maintenance; that’s the short story of our Phil sweater.
With this development, we wanted to solve several issues that wool sweaters can have: pilling, sagging, and tight washing restrictions.
We sure love our wool sweaters, but not all wool sweaters are equally good! Some start sagging and get out of shape. Others need a daily shave because they pill so quickly. And then there is the stress when it comes to washing. How will they come out of the machine ?!
Here is how we solved all these issues.
It starts with the yarn
We developed Phil with a merino yarn spun by Tollegno 1900. With more than 120 years of experience, this Italian company is an expert in wool spinning. The yarn is a perfect marriage of tradition and technology.
They start with 100% extrafine merino wool which is soft and doesn’t itch. The microscopic scales of the wool are then removed to prevent shrinking in your washing machine. A special high-twist spinning technique makes the merino yarn compact, more durable, and highly resistant to pilling.
Then the knit structure
The “half Milano” knit makes a robust sweater with good dimensional stability. Its double-knit structure keeps the threads closer together, making pilling even more difficult and avoiding ladders. It is not as stiff as the full Milano knit, so you keep the nice elastic feel of a knit sweater.
You need the skill
Knitting also takes a lot of skill. Our sweaters are made by a knitwear specialist in the Braga region in the North of Portugal. Just pick up one of our sweaters and you will feel their knowledge and attention to detail.
And care for our planet
We only use mulesing-free merino wool. The lovely sheep just deserve to be treated well. All our yarn is traceable and OEKO-TEX certified.
The “fully fashioned” construction means that all panels are made to measure, and there is no need to cut afterward. All the thread is used, not wasted. But it doesn’t end with us, Phil is designed to last long and used intensively. Wash it only when it’s necessary and use the detergent sparingly.
Merino wool, the perfect 4 seasons material
It’s natural. It’s renewable. It’s durable. It’s stunningly comfortable. And it outclasses cotton or synthetic fiber on any level. Yes, Merino Wool ticks all the boxes. Oh, and did we mention it’s wrinkle resistant, not affected by body odor and temperature regulating in every season?
