DHG wool comes from flocks in Australia and South America that are ‘Mulesing Free’, with meticulous selection to ensure and maintain consistency. Merino wool is considered as being one of the softest and finest of sheep wool available. Ranging from 11.5 micron, most merino wool is less than 24 micron. The length of the staples can vary up to 100 mm (4 in). With origins in Spain in the 12th century, further refining of the breed took place in New Zealand and Australia at the end of the 18th century.
Dyeing of the fibre complies with the Oeko – Tex Standard 100 so it is free of harmful substances. The dyeing house has the Global Organic Textile Standard 5.0 and GRS certification.
