NATURE'S SUPER FIBRE

Wool is the most technical natural fibre.

 

Created by nature to protect sheep against the extremes of their environment - from freezing winters to scorching summers - the inherent properties of wool fibre make it a very smart choice for humans as well. 

 

ZQ is the perfect fibre for year-round comfort and performance.

FIBRE THICKNESS

Wool is classified by the thickness of its fibres. This thickness is measured in microns; one micron is equal to 0.001 mm. The lower the number, the finer the micron and the softer the wool.

SUPERFINE: BELOW 17.5 MICRON FIBRE

These are very fine wool fibres that are silky soft, making them perfect for next-to-skin clothing and suiting.

 

FINE: 17.5-25 MICRON FIBRE

This wool is still very soft, yet slightly stronger and more durable, and is used in activewear clothing and classic fashion.

 

MID-MICRON: 25-35 MICRON FIBRE

This type of wool is used for upholstery and heavy outer clothing layers like jackets.

 

STRONG: 35+ MICRON

This robust wool is snug yet durable enough to be made into luxurious and comfortable, hard-wearing carpets. 

ウールの繊度は12ミクロンから40ミクロンまでの幅があり、それぞれ肌着、Tシャツ、ジャケット、コート、ニットセーターなどの様々な衣類、寝具類、カーペット、断熱用壁材まで適材適所で人々の生活を豊かにしています。
