Product Description

Men long sleeve silk/wool top/vest from Engel. These are amazingly soft and breathable, made of 30% pure silk and 70% organic merino wool. They are very soft and very stretchy. Perfect on their own or as a layer. Available in black.

Wool and silk is great all year around. In the winter it can be worn as a thermal base layer, and on warmer days on it’s own. Wool and silk is also perfect for sleeping in. Wool is great as an inner layer because it helps to regulate the bodies temperature and it can absorb much more liquid than cotton, keeping your little one dry.

About The Brand+-

Engel

Engel is one of the original champions of untreated organic merino wool clothes. The wool comes from Merino sheep kept in their natural environment, organically farmed and therefore living a healthy and stress-free life. The usage of pesticides is forbidden both on pastures and on animals. All of Engel’s products are organic (GOTS certfied) and produced in Germany. All the dyestuffs used are free from heavy metals and free from harmful AZO-dyes.

The brands philosophy, which they have pursued from the start, is to provide their customers with high-quality, ecologically compatible, feel-good products which can be bought with a clear conscience and out of conviction.
Renewable raw materials are used and Engel make sure that the finished garments contain no pollutants. They also avoid completely, the use of substances that are harmful to health or the environment during the entire garment production process. Waste is avoided wherever possible.

Engel are committed to fair, safe employment for a fair wage, not only in our own company but throughout all the production stages.

Sizing+-

The Baby's and Kid's sizes always refer to their body heights in centimetres. This means items in size 50/56 are suitable for babies with a maximum body height of 56 cm. The adults sizing refer to the standard European size tables.

Product Care+-

You don’t need to wash Engel products before wearing them for the first time. After the knitting process, all fabrics are washed to rinse out any excess dye residues, in the first place, and secondly to remove knitting oils and dirt.

Engel recommend that you wash their wool and wool/silk fabrics as little as possible. Wool regenerates in oxygen-rich air of its own accord and so it can also just be well-aired.

Wool Fleece
Only hand-wash fleece, even if the brand label suggest machine washing. Please look below for hand-washing advice on how to wash your fleece.

Wool & Wool/Silk
Washing by hand is recommended or possibly machine washing if you trust your machine to keep the same wash and rinse temperature throughout. In any case, you should use a wool detergent because these do not contain any enzymes (protease) and are pH-neutral. This is essential for your washing machine’s wool programme. However, a gentle baby shampoo can also sometimes be a good substitute when it comes to a quick hand-wash.

Leggings
Engel recommends hand washing. We do wash our wool in the machine on a cold deliciate/wool wash with very little spinning. The key is to keep the temperature the same and to pull the leggings back into shape when they come out of the wash, otherwise the legs will become shorter. Don't wring them, just pull each leg to stretch the fibres and prevent shrinking. For more on care please look at the care section!

Hand-washing
Briefly swirl around a little in plenty of luke-warm water, squeezing gently, using a mild detergent specially designed for wool, then rinse in water of the same temperature. Do not put in the tumble drier or on radiators as this will make the wool hard, brittle and felted. We recommend squeezing (not wringing) the products in a towel after rinsing, pulling them into shape while wet and drying them flat.

DO NOT: Rub, wring out or spin, expose to changes in temperature (first warm water then cold, or vice versa). Do not soak.

Cotton
You can machine-wash all Engel cotton products at 40 °C. Do not use detergents containing optical brighteners, as the colours may fade or change. Apart from this, the whitening agents that build up on the fibre are said to have a harmful effect on contact with skin. In addition, they are not easily biodegradable. A mild or colour detergent is better for the skin and the environment.

Machine-washing
Only if your machine has previously been tested to handle natural, untreated wools.

Select the Wool Wash/Hand Wash programme. “Cold” or max. 30 °C in the machine. This will keep your wool garments soft, elastic and absorbent. With machine-washing too, it is very important that the temperature is the same for both washing and rinsing and that you check that a low spin speed is either part of the programme or can be set manually – max. 400-500 rpm. You should also use a wool-wash detergent for machine-washing, as silk and wool are protein fibres which should basically be cared for with products in the slightly acid pH range (below 7 pH value). These products do not remove the natural oil and protect the fibres at the same time.

Lovely material, runs large, 'old fashioned' cut.

Purchased long sleeved top and bottoms. Lovely soft merino with the added bonus that the wool has NOT been 'superwashed', (the process used by most manufacturers, which effectively coats the wool fibres with a plastic wash so it can be machine washed and generally treated with less care without shrinking or felting).

Not happy with the fit though. I usually run small/medium, so I ordered small, which actually fits more like a medium. The cut is quite old fashioned, and after a wearing for a while becomes baggy. Also, the top is a bit short in the arm, which would make sizing down tricky. The bottoms do have a higher cut than you usually find these days, which is nice, covers ya bum properly, and probably could size down.

I bought to try the merino tops for the four of us. We are very pleased with the purchase. Great quality, it's not itchy at all and keeps you warm. Also I would buy again from MamaOwl as I am very happy with the service.

Thanks!

Great products !

We started by some tops for the kids.. and we ended-up dressing the whole family with these! Great quality, very comfortable, no issue after washing them and much warmer than cotton tops, clear difference ! ADOPTED !
