Highly refined Highland has a puristic, fluid drape and an exceptionally tactile touch. It is constructed from Merino Superfine Wool. Highland adapts harmoniously to all high-end interiors. Its Satin weave, which has its origins in dressmaking, is comprised of finely combed long-staple fibres spun into long-lasting, aesthetically clean yarns. The finishing process for the curtain uses extreme temperature contrasts to enhance the volume of the wool and add a subtle lustrousness. The delicate piece-dyed colours for Highland interlink the warm with the cool, and the light with the dark. They include Pine, Lavender, Angora, Light Cinnamon, Clay, Light Sand, Chalky Mauve and the rich expression of Inky Black.
Lightfastness relates to the ability of a textile to retain its colour under light. When testing for lightfastness, samples are exposed to artificial daylight for a specified period.
The evaluation scale ranges from 1 (worst) to 8 (best). An increase of one point corresponds to a doubling of the lightfastness, i.e. the same fading takes twice as long.

Care instructions curtain textiles
Regular cleaning is important in order to keep the curtain textile looking its best and to prolong its life. Dust and dirt wear down the textile and also reduce its fire-retardant properties.
If possible, we recommend washing curtains once a year. If used heavily, a more frequent cleaning may be appropriate. All curtain fabrics by Kvadrat and Kinnasand are supplied bearing a maintenance label. We recommend the use of a light duty detergent without optical brighteners for all items in which, according to care instructions, washing is possible. In order to reduce the risk of allergy problems, we recommend to use washing detergents that do not contain optical bleach, perfume or colorants. Please take into account a possible shrinkage between 1 – 3 %. For more detailed information, we recommend contacting a professional dry cleaner and/or laundry. A professional dry cleaner may also assist in working out maintenance schedules which ensure that the fabrics are maintained properly so that a good indoor climate and maximum duration of the curtains are achieved.
