Only natural fibres
The wellbeing and comfort we feel when wearing a garment depends on the microclimate, in other words, the temperature and amount of moisture created between our skin and the clothing that covers it.
As natural fibres are living, they are the only ones capable of maintaining a constantly balanced microclimate by absorbing and releasing heat and water vapour as needed. This is why Natyoural only uses natural fibres, giving top priority to customer wellness, starting from their skin.
Cotton is a vegetable fibre consisting of cellulose. It is non-allergenic and extremely comfortable on the skin as it absorbs water vapour without feeling damp.
Natyoural has chosen to use only the very finest cottons, with extralong fibre (3-5 cm), such as Egyptian Mako, which accounts for just 5% of the world’s cotton production. Soft and resistant, if processed as Filoscozia (two threads twisted together, gassed and mercerised), it is cool, bright and pleasant on the skin.
Silk is produced by the silk- worm (Bombyx Mori) before it turns into a moth. Its cocoon is formed of a single, continuous strand of silk filament measuring 2 km in length. Several strands are twisted together to form a thread which, weight for weight, is stronger than steel. Natyoural only uses 5A silk made from a continuous thread, bonded and twisted several times (organzine), or from segments of strands joined together to form the thread (schappe silk). Pretty elastic, soft, fine and absolutely anallergic, silk is ideal for all seasons, extremely pleasing to the skin, absorbing humidity and making your skin feel dry.
Animal hair produces a wool that is of higher quality the rarer and finer the particular fibre. The hair of llamas (alpaca, vicuña), goats (cashmere, mohair), rabbits (angora), bovidae (yak) and predominantly sheep (wool) is used. Natyoural uses top-quality, extrafine Merino wool, obtained from sheep bred in Australia and New Zealand. Wool is covered in minute scales, which give it an extremely high insulating power and humidity resistance, whilst the external surface of the fibre is waterproof and does not absorb liquid from the outside.
Used for thousands of years, linen fibre comes from the stem of the flax plant, from which the coarser layers of fibre are removed. The linen fibre is more resilient than cotton, but less isolating: hence the pleasant, fresh sensation it gives. Linen absorbs and releases water vapour quickly and is therefore ideal for the warmer seasons. As it has low elasticity, it is often blended with other fibres. It has a smooth surface and does not soil easily or cause pilling.
In some cases, natural fibres are blended together within the individual thread to enhance the respective properties or to create particular aesthetic effects (fancy yarns). Natyoural uses a blend of wool (70%) and silk (30%) or cashmere (65%) and silk (35%), to strike a perfect balance between comfort, softness (wool, cashmere), shine, strength and durability (silk). Cotton (85%) and cashmere (15%) or alpaca and cotton offer the softness and warmth of cashmere combined with the strength and brightness of cotton.
Modal is obtained from the wood cellulose. Its fibre absorbs moisture more effectively than cotton and modal fabrics do not shrink and do not fade as easily as other vegetable fibres. Natyoural uses a modal microfibre (10 km of fibre weighs less than one gram) to offer an extrafine product that is soft and snug and similar to silk in terms of shine, strength and elegance.
