Moth protection: before storage over the summer months, wash and stow away in a sealed plastic bag with moth paper.
Our merino wool yarn is made in the southern Alps. It is of the bestquality and makes the colors shine. This special wool from theMerino sheep measures only 19.5 micrometers in thickness (a micrometer is a millionth of a meter). The hair with this delicacy bendsalong our skin and this is how our knitwear gets the touch of cashmere, as soft and as comfortable. The wool is dyed free of heavy metals and it's mulesingfree.

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.
