Wool is the unrivalled protagonist of Lanificio Botto Giuseppe collections, and comes in various types with a large variety of features. High twist wool yields opaque surface effects, and the “elasticity” of stretch fabric that is ideal for comfortable feminine fabrics: wrinkle-proof, compact and form fitting.
Superfine micronised wool is used to build essential, flat structures that are lighted up by the fibre’s natural sheen. Technical wool with finishes to obtain the technological features and structural density for water-repellence, performance, no-stain features and protection against UV radiation.
Wool blended with silk, cashmere, cotton, linen, viscose or bamboo: these combinations are often yarn-dyed or mouliné for dresses and jackets, either self-coloured or printed, proposed in several weights and finishes. Double-face fabrics that can be opened or combined with elastomer are exceptionally light-weight, and almost transparent, event the felt for coats. Fulled wool, often blended with cashmere, in mélange hues of precious flannel, either self-coloured or printed, linen or heavy sophisticated felt, also used with raw edges.
