The virgin wool we use for the loden 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.
When it really starts to storm on an icy summit, that’s when our SWISSWOOL PIZ DUAN line comes into its own. Whether as a vest for the ascent or a jacket for the summit, this line offers an unbeatable combination of protection and insulation while being very lightweight.
Our wool has its origins at the heart of a natural paradise. Where the air is at its purest, the food rich, and the climate moderate – this is where the best merino wool in the world can be found.
