Tips : How to choose well his cardigan?
To avoid false-not, check the following points :
The seam ends at the shoulder.
A cut that draws your silhouette without mold.
If you opt for a V-neck collar, make sure it is not too deep to avoid the bad taste.
A COMPOSITION MONITOR
We do not recommend that you strictly buy clothing in the mesh where the presence of synthetic material exceeds 20% (polyester, polyamide, acrylic, nylon, spandex).
This is the threshold beyond which the material will make you sweat and loses its properties of course thermorégulantes.
You can point to a turtleneck sweater, a heavy cardigan shawl collar or a sweater with a boat neckline (buttoned on the shoulder).
The key is to make sure that it is fairly adjusted to ensure that it does not yawn after relaxation of the fibres.
THE PRODUCTION OF WOOL
The major producers of wool are Australia, China and New Zealand. Today, more than a billion sheep produce about 2 million tons of wool ! Once the sheep are sheared, the wool is washed, dyed then spun.
The wool is processed in small farms or industrial way, only two-thirds of the total production of wool intended for the manufacture of clothing.
QUALITIES OF WOOL AND LABELS
The quality of merino wool is expressed in the form" extra-fine super "(and then a number of 80 to 200). The higher the number, the more the fiber is fine and soft.
The merino sheep produce fibers of high quality, but are not the best. Other animals such as goats (kashmir and mohair), camelids ( alpaca, vicuña and camel ) or the angora rabbits produce finer fibers and, therefore, even more sweet. Much more rare, they are often mixed.
Point bling : 10 times more expensive than cashmere, the vicuña is fibre the most expensive in the world !
A FEW SMALL IMPORTANT DETAILS
Some lesser-quality products in which the fibres have been recycled may still be able to view 100% wool / pure wool.
The appellation "virgin wool"may contain 7% other fibers (synthetic) although the label says "100% wool". This ratio legal moves to 0.3% for the appellation "pure virgin wool".
The label WOOLMARK ensures the use of wool of first-quality levied on animals and healthy living.
It is a great indicator !
