Insulation Jacket Women 2
On the Alps of Disentis our organically kept sheep defy wind and weather. They get shorn in spring and autumn. Their wool is processed to become a fine and cosy-warm fleece. At our sewing factory in Widnau this fleece is sewn together with our durable and windproof fabric from Ziegelbrücke to form our comfortable jacket. It is available with and without hood. The athletic and elegant jacket is your ideal companion in the mountains and in everyday life. Thanks to the temperature-regulating properties of the wool the jacket is suitable for cooler as well as for really cold days.
The History of your Jacket
We are especially proud of our Insulation Jacket 2. A million thanks to the sheep, shearers, farmers, chemists, dyers, wool processors, weavers, tailors, packer and shipping personal who made this production possible in the first place.

Pastured in Disentis
Warm Thanks to the Organic Sheep Wool from Disentis
Disentis is located at the backmost corner of the Rhine valley. This beautiful patch of earth is the domicile of the “Bündner Oberländer”-tribe. One of those is the organic farmer Markus from Segnas. The 150 sheep, which he can call his own, pasture the alpine meadows around Disentis since ages. In spring time before the sheep are released to the meadows, strong men with trimmers pay a visit to the farm. Subsequently, they are released to the alpine meadows. In autumn, after the sheep have spent the summer on the pastures and their hair has regrown the friendly guys with the trimmers set their hands once again on the animals. This way, every autumn and every spring wool is produced by the sack – which we can use perfectly for our jacket.
The Insulation Jackets 2 produced at the moment is lined with the wool from the spring shearing in 2017. We collected and controlled the wool together with the farmer on the 20th May this year.
The Insulation Jacket is not just warm but also meets highest social and environmental standards. Learn more:
