Empowering Mexican Female Knitters
Dulce De Lana recognizes the talent of knitters by offering a personal and handmade product. They knit from home and decide their work hours so that they can balance their family and professional lives. They are integrated into a development and monitoring program to guarantee the measurements and the quality of the finishes of each piece. From the first sketch to the finished garment, there is a long and exciting journey. Each pattern is reviewed by experienced knitters, and samples are washed and worn before going into production. Finally, and as a requirement to go on sale, each of the garments receives the dandelion button sewn by hand by the founder herself, as a seal of approval.
100% Merino Wool
Dulce de Lana’s favorite is merino wool, as it is ideal for baby’s sensitive skin. With its fibers three times finer than any other type of wool, it is the softest and silkiest fabric on the market.
Merino comes from a very special breed of Spanish sheep that grows healthily and freely, which guarantees abundant and high-quality wool. It has a natural elasticity that allows it to adapt to the body, always returning to its original shape. Its active fibers maintain the baby’s ideal body temperature in both hot and cold conditions. In addition, it is hypoallergenic, antibacterial, and has a protective layer against stains. And to top it all, it is biodegradable.
