Finest Woollen Merino Fabrics
Leichtfried mainly uses extra fine Australian Merino wool for the production of woollen apparel and interior fabrics to ensure they maintain their outstanding quality and durability.
The Merino breed is originally from Europe where the Greek and Spanish contributed to spreading it around the Mediterranean area. Today, Australia is the main producer of this unique treasure, supplying around 40% of the world's demand.

Australian Merinos are regarded as having some of the finest and softest wool fibres of any sheep on the planet and Australian Merino wool crafted goods are internationally renowned for luxury, quality and performance. Australian Merino wool is an extremely versatile, renewable and biodegradable fibre. It is carefully cultivated by generations of Australian woolgrowers, who are dedicated to every step of the growing process to create one of the finest and most precious fibres.

Australian Merino wool fibres are extremely fine, enabling them to bend much more easily than traditional, coarser wool variations. These attributes provide a soft and gentle feeling against the skin. In a fully integrated production process, Leichtfried transforms this finely crimped and soft fibre into bulky woollen yarns and subsequently into fabrics that are internationally renowned for their beautiful drape and luxurious handle.
