In winter and summer alike: Our SWISSWOOL CLASSIC MITTEN LEATHER is made of 100% virgin wool with leather inserts, offering basic protection for your hands on hills and high mountains.
The positive features of wool really come into their own in gloves, as wool warms even when it gets wet. Virgin wool is also known for its excellent thermal properties and optimum climate control.
The fine goatskin leather inserts on the palms help you keep a firm grip at all times, providing scuff protection on the side of the wool that is exposed to the most wear and tear. Our SWISSWOOL CLASSIC WOOL MITTEN LEATHER is also made from fair-trade wool from Switzerland, which makes it particularly sustainable.
No matter where you are: You’ll be in control and your hands will always be nice and warm with the SWISSWOOL CLASSIC MITTEN LEATHER.
The virgin wool we use is produced locally in Switzerland. SWISSWOOL has set up collection stations specifically for this purpose in many Swiss Alpine valleys, some of which are very remote, guaranteeing a fair price for raw wool. This has led to a revival in sheep farming and wool production, which are often quite unprofitable. After the raw wool has been weighed, it is washed and then processed. ORTOVOX then provides the unique design and functionality during the manufacture of the end product.
We have been using merino wool in our mountain wear layers since 1988, and we are the originators of functional wool apparel for mountain sports. The protection of people and animals has always been the central focus of all ORTOVOX activities.
