Moth protection: before storage over the summer months, wash and stow away in a sealed plastic bag with moth paper.
Our Pima cotton yarn is organically grown and GOTS certified. The raw material is spun and dyed in a northern Italian yarn factory. Pima cotton owes its name "South America's silk" to its silky-fine fibres. Exactly these make it one of the highest quality cotton yarns ever. Thanks to its special fiber length of 35mm, it is very soft, durable, crease-resistant and resistant to tangles. Additionally, it is hypoallergenic, making it an excellent choice for people with sensitive skin.
The knitting factory was founded more than 40 years ago. Today several generations of the family work in the company.

Of course, the knitting mill fulfills all requirements for the protection of people and the environment.
Tina Grässli started with her first
designs in 1994 and produced them herself with her own knitting machine. The
demand for these unique items quickly increased. Soon she was able to
commission the first production under the name XESS. Together with Baba Rüegg
and others, she opened the motley shop "SAUS + BRAUS" in 1996 and
founded the company xess + baba Ltd almost at the same time.
Today Tina Grässli works with Christian La Roche, her long-term partner and husband. As an experienced theater person, he puts things in the right light and ensures order in the backstage.
