We specialize in the production of high quality wool tops processed by combining the latest technological equipment, decades of experience and genuine love for the wool fibre.

Each product is the result of a careful selection of wools, hard work and dedication, as we aim to provide our customers with specifically customised tops.

The diameter range of our wool top production goes from 17.5 micron to 34.0 micron. We process wool from corriedale, merino and polworth breeds, which are the predominant ones in our country. All the wool in Uruguay is harvested by using the latest shearing, mulesing free, practices in order to get a clean fleece and provide a stress-free environment for the flock when sheared.

Another very important product we offer is Hercosett treated wool tops. These are manufactured in the same facility where our normal wooltops are produced, which avoids any extra logistic costs for our clients.

We offer this treatment and the process achieves the results necessary for the wool to be suited for tumble dry and machine wash. We control shrinkage by following norm TM31.

Our production is based
on five different qualities of tops:
