More than two centuries of experience go into Lanificio Paoletti’s careful selection of wools that contribute to the high quality of the fabrics that the mill produces
The wools used in Lanificio Paoletti’s textile production are divided by country of origin, race of sheep, and characteristics:
Australia / Australian Merino / Thin, with a beautiful color
New Zealand / Corriedale / Stout and bright
Argentina / Falkland / Ordinary, white, and puffy
Argentina / Patagonia / Very white, medium thickness
England / Cheviot / Ordinary, with a good white color and a very strong fiber
England / Black Face / Ordinary and strong
England / Shetland / Ordinary, with good color
Sweden / Gutefa / Dark, long fiber
Iceland / Icelandic / Bright, can be blended with Mohair
Italy (Dolomites) / Alpagota / Ordinary, yellow in color, puffy
Lanificio Paoletti is actively involved in a “zero-kilometer” local manufacturing project where wool is harvested from an endangered, indigenous species of sheep in collaboration with the Fardjma shepherds’ cooperative. The virgin wool from the Alpagota sheep yields a naturally blended yarn because of its multicolor fleece.
The blended wool yarns produced by the mill alternate and are combined with woven yarns produced by Italy’s major textile districts, including Biella, Como, and Prato.
