      Material Raw wool

      ARKET’s Raw wool™ yarn is spun from coarse and extra-strong fibres. Through different combinations of knitting structure, tension and needle size, fine and lightweight garments as well as dense heavy knits are produced from the same yarn. The knits are distinguished by a dry hand feel that softens with time as the fibres naturally become smoother and more pliable.

      Material Raw wool

      The performance of Raw wool™ is determined by several factors but the fibre diameter – measured in microns – is the single most important characteristic. Wool fibres for clothing typically span from 15 to 25 microns. The lower the diameter (the higher the number), the more prone to wear and tear the knits will be. By using extra-strong 28-29 micron fibres, ARKET has been able to achieve superior durability and a unique appearance of the knitted garments.

      Before Raw wool™ can be spun into yarn, the fibres are stripped of grease and impurities. Due to this process, it tends to have an initially dry hand feel, which diminishes over time as the fibres naturally become smoother and more pliable. This way, ARKET’s wool knits can maintain their long-lasting quality and gain character with age.

      Through different combinations of needle size, tension, ply and knitting structure, the same yarn can be knitted into a variety of outcomes. ARKET Raw wool™ knits go as fine as 16GG for a loose tension and airy feel, whereas heavy knits are made with 7GG to 9GG for a dense structure and maximal insulating properties.
