Rauwerk is a renowned ethical and ecological wool shop in Munich. It also gives its name to its own brand of organic, 100% merino, hand-spun and hand-dyed wool.
Behind Rauwerk you will find Christine: an entrepreneur, whose motto is to work with mother nature. For this reason, all her wool comes from a Munich family farm in the Chiembau area, certified organic.
True to its ethical principles, the brand presents its skeins in four basic colours: natural (Kalk) and three shades of grey: gravel (Kies), graphite (Graphit) and obsidian (Obsidiana). To achieve this subtle range, Christine uses botanical and natural dyes, applied directly to the fleece before spinning and reeling the wool.
Recently, to broaden her palette, she has started dyeing skeins in other colours under the ecological and social criteria of the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). Christine is also a great knitter.
