With the move to Argentinian farms in 2021, we moved our scouring and coming to local facilities in Argentina. Run by our sourcing partner Chargeurs, the combing facilities are equipped with state of the art water treatment facilities that safeguard the clean return of the water taken from the Rio Chubut River, which carries its water from the Andes to the Atlantic ocean. The facilities scour and comb greasy wool to produce merino tops (wool in the stage ready for spinning) of qualities ranging from 17 to 32,5 microns - with our quality in the highest end at 19,5 microns.
