Wool Silk Turtles on Arctic Night

Here the wool silk fabric is offered on the basic color Arctic Night.

About patterns in general - our patterns are printed and can come off under extreme friction. We therefore advise against using sample fabrics in areas that are subject to extreme friction, such as the knees of small children.

natural reserve

We donate 1€ to Oceancare for every meter sold. Oceancare is based in Switzerland and has been the UN Special Advisor on Marine Conservation since 2011. See below for more information.

combinations and cuffs

All wool jersey and wool/silk fabrics in the shop are suitable for the turtles as a combination. The wool/silk itself can be used as a cuff, for example, but other wool jerseys are also possible. Due to the well-matched print, color accents in carmine red or corn yellow as well as tone-on-tone combinations such as ink sky wool jersey or Arctic Night plain wool/silk are suitable.

However, if a firmer cuff is desired, the fine wool cuffs go very well with our wool/silk.

design samples

We are also happy to show some design examples in the photos that were made available to us by enthusiastic customers. Thank you again for that!

The sibling shirts shown here are sewn by Rosa and Danisch Pur according to the Viktor&Viktoria pattern. In combination with dark red rib jersey (alternative would be Amaranth Cino ), wool jersey ink sky and wool/silk carmine red block stripes.

We try to keep the links up-to-date, but links will sometimes go nowhere if the relevant fabrics are sold out in the meantime. Since we have a constantly changing range, this unfortunately cannot be ruled out. So if the link goes nowhere, the substance is currently not purchasable. But don't worry: popular fabrics keep coming back.

Oceancare

We will donate €1 per meter of fabric sold to OceanCare to help save sea turtles. OceanCare is a non-profit organization that has been committed to marine life for over 30 years.

In 2011, Oceancare became a special adviser to the UN on marine conservation issues and in 2016 a partner organization of the "Convention on Migratory Wild Animal Species (CMS/Bonn Convention)".

In addition to numerous projects to reduce plastic waste or chemicals in the sea or to reduce noise pollution in the sea - all of which of course also benefit turtles - there are also specific projects to save sea turtles.

The "Sea Turtle Rescue Alliance" (STRA) project only started in March 2021 - the aim is to network experts around the world and create a cloud-based platform for exchange and know-how transfer.

In this way, smaller and less well-equipped rescue centers also have access to valuable knowledge about sea turtles. In addition to the exchange of knowledge and international cooperation, there will also be telemedical support for operations using modern technologies.

OceanCare is also committed to mandatory labeling for fishing nets. There are currently an estimated 25,000 "ghost nets" floating in the sea - nets that were simply discarded there.

These often become deadly traps for sea turtles as they trap jellyfish and other sea creatures, acting as a kind of bait for the turtles.

The nylon cords then wrap themselves around the turtles' necks and flippers, leading to deep wounds from which the animals often die.

By marking the nets, which OceanCare is committed to as a member of the "Global Ghost Gear Initiative", you could later assign them to their owners again. This simple measure should drastically reduce the number of ghost nets.

materials and information

70% wool (merino wool) / 30% silk (mulberry silk) – organic jersey/mulesing free

wool/silk

Our organic wool-silk fabric (kbt, mulesing-free) is produced according to the highest ecological criteria. It is therefore particularly suitable for the sensitive skin of babies and toddlers as well as for all clothing that is worn close to the skin. Outerwear is also given something very special by the delicate shimmer of the wool-silk fabric, so that the fabric is also ideal for adult clothing.

Different batches

Please note that this fabric comes back to the shop from time to time as a perennial favorite and that the individual batches can differ slightly in terms of color and feel, so that it may not be possible to sew them into one piece of clothing if you want it to fit exactly.

Wool as a natural product

Please note that wool is a natural product. Here it can happen that the threads are thicker in some places than in others because the wool fibers are not all the same. Dyes may not be perfectly even as some fibers take color better than others. And there can also be wool fluff in the fabric that comes from fiber flight, which cannot be completely avoided, especially when processing wool products. No piece of fabric is like the other.

Characteristics

Wool is naturally self-cleaning and antibacterial. It absorbs moisture without feeling clammy and transports it outwards, away from the body. Merino new wool is very finely crimped, does not scratch and is wonderfully soft and fluffy. Mulberry silk ensures a pleasantly soft and skin-soothing wearing comfort. Silk has a temperature-regulating effect, warms in cold temperatures and cools on warm days. Since wool and silk clothing only rarely needs to be washed - brushing or airing it out is usually enough - the clothing is also very easy to care for.

care instructions

It is optimal if the woolen clothing is simply aired out in damp weather (e.g. in the bathroom when showering). The water vapor that meets the fabric then automatically transports away smaller dirt particles and bad odours.

If the clothes are heavily soiled, they can be washed by hand or on the wool cycle of the washing machine at 30 degrees with wool detergent.

Since wool fibers are more sensitive when wet than when dry, it is recommended to dry the wool silk lying flat on a towel.

A lot of dirt can also be removed by tapping or brushing (e.g. with the miracle brush available in the shop).

For further care and sewing instructions, we also refer to our FAQs.

sewing instructions

Wool silk can be sewn on the overlock as well as on the conventional sewing machine. It is important to use a stretchable stitch (e.g. zigzag stitch, pseudo-overlock stitch, etc.) and super stretch needles. The needles are specially made for very stretchy fabrics and ensure that the threads are not severed when sewing, but pushed to the side. This way there are no holes in the sewing machine in the long run. It may be helpful to lower the presser foot pressure on the sewing machine, or if this is not possible, use a walking foot. This prevents “wavy formation” when sewing.

As with other thin fabrics, it is advisable not to start sewing at the very edge of the fabric, as this can sometimes "eat" into the machine. Here you can start sewing 2-3cm from the edge and sew up the beginning after a few stitches using the reverse button. Holding onto the protruding threads and gently pulling them backwards also makes it easier to start.

Wool silk fabric is stretchier than most comparable cotton jersey. Here it can make sense to sew one size smaller than normal and to stay with the usual dress size in length. As every pattern and build is different, it is highly recommended to place well-fitting garments on top of the appropriate pattern to provide a match.

Mulesing Free

All of our wool/silk fabrics are mulesing-free. This means that "our" woolly sheep do not remove the skin around the tail without anesthesia to prevent pest infestation. This procedure has been sharply criticized by animal protection organizations. As a matter of principle, we only offer guaranteed mulesing-free wool/silk fabrics.
