The wool originates from Patagonia and is spun in Italy
Short beanie knitted in full cardigan stitch. The beanie is tightly fully-fashioned knitted on a 5 gauge flat knitting machine with 6 threads extra spun, pure new wool. The compact structure ensures that the beanie keeps in shape and that the loops are less likely to be caught when wearing. Andersen-Andersen have beanies in three different lengths, and this is our shortest length. All our beanies are knitted in a heavy quality.

Our signature yarn is made from mulesing-free, 100% pure new wool sourced in Patagonia and Uruguay. The wool fibres are collected, carefully cleansed, then worsted to remove short fibres. We give the yarn an extra spin during the spinning process to create a denser, more durable yarn that is far less likely to pill.
Launched in 2016 in collaboration with our spinning mill, we have carefully selected the best wool from brown sheep to achieve an authentic and rich moretta colour. The sheep for our special wool are sheared, then the wool is cleansed, worsted and spun.
Our organic cotton yarn is produced in accordance with the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). The cotton is sourced in Turkey, then spun into our signature yarn in Northern Italy. The cotton fibre we've selected, with our signature extra spin, makes our finished garments more durable and gives a unique, crisp feel.
Indigo dyed yarn
Our indigo yarn is fibre-dyed using natural indigo leaves harvested in France and India. The leaves are combined with supporting herbs to affix the indigo colour to the wool. After dyeing, the fibres are worsted and spun onto cones ready for knitting. We’ve partnered with the only dye house in the world that has a Woolmark certificate for their herb-dyeing process.
