a new invention
this is lanapa
66% Australian Extra Fine Merino Wool and 34% Premium Hemp by Opera Campi.
100% Extra Fine Merino Wool, known for its softness and warmth. We hand-pick the quality of our wool from renowned spinners located in Biella.
It's sourced from the wild Australian farms, it's spun in Europe and it's mulesing free.
While we sourced Wool from the suppliers we trust, the Hemp component of "Lanapa" is obviously the material you have always worn: the "Canapa" by Opera Campi, the finest and softest Hemp ever spinned.
a patented meeting
Lanapa is obtained using a patented twisting technology.
Wool and Hemp are mixed through a technique that makes the yarn even elastic and gains a "clean" texture.
Something definetly more innovative and sustainble than cashmere or wool sweaters you can find everywhere.
the intelligent material
Merino Wool is known for its warmth and performance. Hemp is known for being the best thermal regulating and sustainable fibre.
Lanapa is so the "intelligent yarn".
Listen how Fabrizio explains you the advantages of Lanapa. Sorry, he only speaks italian so we put english subtitles.
we got mad on it
A serious issue we had with this fabric was dyeing. Traditional dyeing techniques were not solid enough and the final color looked "faded".
Our dyeing experts overturned years of knowledge to create a new technique to dye, in one single yarn, both Hemp and Merino Wool. Through a new process, we obtained a cheaper but better dyeing.
