R&J Capsule collection
This Capsule collection is dedicated to the one of the best known and well-loved tragic love stories of all time: Romeo and Juliet. The British play written by Shakespeare was inspired by the originally tale written by Luigi Dapporto from Vicenza. He created the play about the doomed romance between to teenagers from feuding families. The story has become one of the most well-known love stories ever written. Verona is now ” the city of love” and one of the main tourist attractions for romantic travellers in Veneto. Juliet’s house in Via Cappello, 23 is where you can find the famous balcony, where Romeo had declared his love to Juliet. Hundreds of people every day come here to take pictures, to swear fidelity or simply to admire the location. The capsule includes a series of elements designed to represent and celebrate the two legendary lovers.
The heart with the sword symbolizing the tragic love Romeo has for Juliet; the balcony from where they declared themselves lovers and the Crown symbolizing their nobility. Each model is named after the main characters from the different interpretations of the original tale to Leonard Bernstein’s West side story. Materials and models are all made and designed in Italy.
Wool Fun Facts
Antibacterial and antimicrobial – Wool is the best fiber to wear in these difficult times. The fiber has a waxy coating that contains fatty acids to prevent the growth of Mold and bacteria. This mean that your wool products do not need regular washing and will smell fresh after repeated use, unlike synthetic fibers.
Uv Protection – Sheep wool has a natural uv Protection factor up to +30. Wool naturally absorbs sun uv ryes before it can get to yours skin.
Easy to care for – As you probably notice wool dose not need a regular washing. The fatty acid in the wool fiber inhibit the odor bacteria as dirt, dust and lint whom are repelled by the waxy coating. The scale surface does not allow stains and dirt to be absorbed, they remain on top of the fiber making it easier to get rid of.
Durable – Wool is a fantastic material it can withstand being bent 20000 without breaking! It’s natural elasticity brings the fiber to be less likely to break so your wool item less likely to tear. Compared to other fibers like cotton that can stand 3000 bends, or silk that breaks after 2000 bends, the capacity of wool to get back in shape are just fantastic.
Insulates even when wet – The wool fibre can absorb half of its weight in moisture. Just after it’s saturated for 60% it will feel wet to the touch. Since it retains 80% of its insulating value it will keep you warm even if wet.
Keeps you warm in winter and cool in summer – Wool is the well known for its properties to regulate body temperature. During a cold weather the insulating qualities of the fabric trap dry air and warmth near the skin. During warm weather coil like shape the wool fiber pulls the excess heat and moisture from your skiing , helping to stay cooler.
Stain resistent – The waxy out-coating of wool helps repelling liquid instead of absorbing it, if you spill something on your knitwear it is more likely that it will slip away, and easier to clean what remains on it.
