Loden wool is a centuries old fabric originally designed to keep inhabitants of the high alps warm and dry through freezing and wet winters. It has even been described as the original performance fabric. Our Loden is woven from extra fine Austrian merino wool for a luxurious take on its original form. It is made by a company that dates back to the 19th century with heritage and craftsmanship rooted in the production of this unique cloth. From selecting the finest wool fibres and every step involved in processing them into finished fabrics they carry out each and every stage themselves with unsurpassed attention to detail.
