Wizardwool was established in October 2004 by siblings Marisa Dobler and Andreas Vetter.
Marisa Dobler is the creative director. As a former kindergarten educator she has a lot of experience in arts and crafts. Marisa develops new products and ideas and is your contact for all customer service issues and orders.Andreas Vetter is the strategic operator and purchaser. He was responsible for the purchasing departments in well-known international textile companies and has maintained the best contacts from whom he buys the best wool. Suppliers are welcome to contact him regarding their products.
Our objectives are:
- offer the best quality
We select and rate our suppliers carefully. All coloured materials are dyed according to Oecotex Standard 100 (class II) and a big part of the collection is further dyed and certified by bluesign or GOTS standards.
- support animal welfare efforts
We have a written confirmation from our supplier that the wool of the fine Merino line is guaranteed to be ´mulesing free´. In our silk program we use wild silk (Tussah silk). In contrast to breeding silk (e.g., mulberry silk) the butterfly is allowed to leave the cocoon before the silk is harvested.
- enthuse our customers
We aim for more than satisfaction; we want to enthuse our customers enough that they recommend us to all their friends.
- practise social responsibility
We enjoy working with a local facility for handicapped persons (Lebenshilfe Vorarlberg), who support us in many production processes.
- practise sustainability
We use recycled boxes for shipments to our customers and for transporting materials between our facilities. Additionally, our courier service has a CO2-neutral distribution method.
