What is Loden?

'Loden' is now a collective name for dense and heavy woven wool fabrics, often (but not always) in a blended melange look. With its weight of 220 gr/m2, this piece dyed fabric ET_GW030 can be counted amongst the light loden fabrics.

Loden fabrics are always made with carded yarns, which are a bit more voluminous and fluffier than worsted yarns. Equally important is that loden fabrics are always fulled. They are distinguished from each other by the different weaving techniques that are used and the intensity with which the fabrics are fulled. Fulling makes the fabrics stronger and warmer, increases the natural water- and dirt-repellent properties of wool and makes the fabrics more windproof.

Wool naturally ensures a good balance between body and ambient temperature. In addition, wool is breathable. It absorbs water vapor and perspiration and releases it into the environment.
