Less is more.
The wool for X-BIONIC® and X-SOCKS® comes from specially-bred merino sheep, Saxon Merinos. They live in the rainy regions of southern Australia, in Victoria, the
Tablelands of New South Wales and the highlands of the island of Tasmania. Saxon Merinos are small, tough, and produce a wonderfully fine wool.
Only four, maximum five kilograms of wool are obtained from a sheep per year.
From this wool we have the finest yarn spun, with a diameter of 16.5 microns. As a simple comparison, our hair is around twice this thickness.
But Saxon Merino wool is not only especially fine, but is also very white and has a unique natural sheen. To make it into perfect X-BIONIC®/X-SOCKS® wool
it requires a finishing process, this will make the surface even softer and give the finished product a silky sheen.
