Saffira from Pascuali
Saffira is a jewel among luxury yarns! It is a wonderful blend of the highest quality merino yarn and mulberry silk.
Merino wool is highly breathable and has excellent thermoregulating properties and one of the finest and most exclusive fibres available due to its unique shine and softness. Our merino wool is of course mulesing-free and is GOTS-certified. This means that the animals are kept according to ecological standards, the working environment is safe, workers receive fair pay, and there is no child labour or excessive working hours.
The mulberry silk gives Saffira its ultimate luxurious characteristics both in look and feel. Even though Mulberry silk is a very delicate fibre it is also very strong. It is particularly smooth and soft so it can be worn directly on the skin. Silk gives Saffira its glossy touch. It also makes it strong, and supple with an excellent drape. Because of silk's unique sheen, Saffira´s 20 colours radiate and assume a unique luminescent characteristic.
Thanks to its moisture-wicking properties, Saffira cools and warms simultaneously. Therefore, garments knitted with Saffira are perfect for summer and winter. It is a natural yarn that is completely bio-degradable. It is also wrinkle and tear resistant, hypo-allergenic and very easy to care for.
