All Hvid pieces are made in Belgium from 100% merino wool, oeko-tex®, mulesing free, no superwash. Exceptional quality machine knitted in one piece using zero waste knitting technology, Hvid create heirloom knitwear for you to love.
All Hvid products are made of 100% merino wool. Chosen for its sustainability, versatility and softness. Also as merino wool is biodegradable, meaning it can be broken down organically in the ecosystem, any long term environmental pollution can be avoided. Hvid work with the best Italian spinning mills who have to comply to the most stringent European yarn colouring regulations. Hvid partners use 100% renewable energy and manage water responsibly by optimising water consumption and processes, purification and management of discharges.
As for the knitting of our Hvid items, Hvid work with a small family business 1 hour from their home studio in the south of Belgium. The owner is Hvid founder Caroline’s old teacher when she was pursuing her knitting degree. He runs the business with his wife who’s in charge of the washing and ironing department. Thanks to their unique expertise (they are the only Belgian factory working this way), Hvid are able to knit their items in 1 whole piece, without any seams, nor waste of any cut fabric Weekly the Hvid team pick-up the knitwear and take it to our partners of the social workplace who sew the labels.
