Merino wool guide

Find your wool quality

Our company dates back to 1916 and our expertise lies within natural materials, more specifically, organic merino wool and cotton. Over the last century, we have worked tirelessly to refine, optimise, and meticulously perfect the quality of these materials - keeping all their amazing natural qualities completely intact.

Below, we have created an overview of our different wool qualities, so you can easily find the product that matches your needs. To help you differentiate between our wool qualities, we have named each either by the knitting technique applied (1x1, 8x1, multi rib, 4x2, single, and terry), fibre composition (merino wool/silk, merino wool/alpaca), or treatment (wool fleece).

Our merino wool

For our products, we use merino wool, which is among the finest and softest wool qualities in the world. Our merino wool is 100% organic. It comes from non-mulesed sheep from farmers who adhere to the highest standards of animal welfare. Essentially, when you buy wool products from DILLING, you are always ensured high quality wool from happy sheep.

For our products, we use merino wool of 17.5 micron (superfine) to 21.5 (medium) with Nm ranging from 40/1 to 72/2.

No harmful chemicals and heavy metals

All our products are produced with profound respect for the environment and without the use of harmful chemicals and heavy metals. By far, most of our organic wool products are spun in Germany and Poland, dyed at our Nordic Swan Ecolabel certified dyehouse in Denmark, and cut and sewn at our own factories in Lithuania*.

Finally, all the products made from our signature wool quality – the 1x1, 8x1, and multi rib - have received a unique 10-hour environmentally-friendly enzyme treatment for an incredibly soft and itch-free product.
