Morpho + Luna’s high-tech wool loungewear
Morpho + Luna is renowned for its use of luxurious fabrics: from liquid-like silk pyjamas to super-soft cashmere robes, the fine quality craftsmanship and raw materials that go into each and every garment is evident, particularly when it comes to women’s loungewear.
Designed to keep you supremely comfortable when relaxing at home or when travelling, our loungewear is made from an innovative high-tech wool that’s typically used in sports clothing. This advanced fabric is made by Reda Active, a division of renowned Italian textile company Reda, the family business of Morpho + Luna co-founder Carola Botto Poala Voli.
Founded in Biella in the Piedmont region of Italy, Reda has been crafting exquisite fabrics at its factory in Valle Mosso since 1865, and has, over the years, become synonymous with quality and luxury – which is why it works with many top international fashion designers.
For the high-tech wool used in Morpho + Luna’s loungewear, Reda combines tradition with innovation, taking the finest Merino wool that has been reared on the company’s ZQ-accredited farms (ensuring fair, sustainable wool practices) in New Zealand, and then, back in Italy, treating each fibre with ComACT3 technology, an innovative spinning system that gives a smoother yarn.
Through a carefully controlled production process – Reda is the only wool mill in the world to have an environmental certification from EMAS (Eco Management and Audit Scheme) – Reda Active has created a wool fabric that’s not only incredibly soft and light, but also has excellent elasticity and resistance.
The Merino wool selected by Reda Active has a particularly fine undulating structure, with a hydrophilic core that absorbs sweat vapour, together with a water-repellent outer layer that can quickly release it. Pure wool is proven to protect us from cold and heat, and the insulating properties of Reda Active’s Merino wool is particularly good, thanks to these fine and undulating fibres.
Our Merino wool loungewear is ideal for long-haul travel, as not only will it always be without creases at the end of the journey, it will help regulate your body temperature as you move between cool and warm environments. Wool fibre is also highly fire-resistant and generates very little heat, so it provides optimal protection against UV rays, too.
And as if that weren’t enough, all of our Merino wool and wool flannel loungewear is machine-washable too*, and the wool’s high absorbency means it dries much more quickly than synthetic materials.
So next time you’re travelling – or simply lounging at home – stay cosy and comfortable in our super-soft Bettina long-sleeved T-shirt and Remy leggings, both made from Reda Active Merino wool, or opt for our Agatha tailored shirt and Zac pyjama trousers, both made from soft and breathable Reda Active wool flannel. For added warmth, layer with the Luna embroidered wool flannel robe, and complete the look with an embroidered wool flannel eye mask – an ensemble that will ensure you reach your destination feeling well rested and relaxed.
