The Future of Healthy Food

As the world’s population increases, so will the demand for food. The only way to fulfil this demand in a sustainable manner is to drive the consumption of healthy fruit, vegetables and meat. This panorama enables us to produce high-quality food on limited surface areas, with a minimum of resources and friendly with the environment. Our ultimate aim is to make people’s lives healthier and the world a better place to live in.

From the highlands of South America to your favorite clothing

Merino wool is the world’s finest and softest wool in the world. Its natural benefits are so great that no other fibre – natural or man-made – can match it.

In South America we produce other types of wool, suitable for products such as wool bedding and home interiors, but it’s Merino wool that is most-suited for luxury clothing, high-performance sportswear and next-to-skin apparel.

Fashion designers love this unique fibre for its quality and versatility – nothing else feels like Merino wool, looks like Merino wool, or wears like Merino wool.

Arguably the oldest-known animal fibre, wool is composed of a natural protein called keratin – the same protein found in human hair – with a small amount of calcium, sodium and fat. The surface of each fibre is covered in scales, which are important in making felts and traditional woollen cloths.

As a South American woolgrower we produce the world’s finest wool from Merino and other sheep breeds using sustainable farming practices. Unlike synthetics which are industrially produced from non-renewable fossil energy, Merino wool is a natural fibre grown year-round by Merino sheep, consuming a simple blend of natural ingredients including sunshine, water, fresh air and grass. Every year these sheep produce new fleece, making wool a completely renewable fibre.

All our wool fibers are certified by WoolTrademark, South America’s seal of quality standards, owned by the Wool Trademark Quality Company (WTQC), a company owned by South American woolgrowers.

Our textile fibers are obtained from organic sheep (Texel, Dorset, Merino, Rambouillet, Blue Faced Leicester, and Corriedale breeds) and alpaca, including cashmere and mohair from goats.

WoolTrademark is a wool industry certification mark used on South American pure wool products that meet quality standards set by Lanas del Sur.

The trade mark is owned by the Wool Trademark Quality Company (WTQC), which has since 1998 been a not-for-profit enterprise that conducts research, development and marketing along the worldwide supply chain for South American finest wool on behalf of woolgrowers that help fund WTQC.
