Description

this cashmere sweater is special! it is made from recycled cashmere and features a minimal design, roll neck and cropped shape. recycled cashmere does not only keep an eye out for the environmental footprint but is also super soft and cozy.

 

Material

97% recycled cashmere, 3% wool

the cashmere recycling process builds on the principles of the circular economy by recovering clothes that are thrown away. jungle folk works with a north-italian spinning mill MilleFilli, a facility that collects used cashmere products such as sweaters, jackets and coats, separates them by color and transforms the fibers into new yarns.

since the separated clothes already come in color it is not necessary to dye them again - the whole recycled cashmere process uses way less water, energy and chemicals than the new fibers.

Fit

regular cozy fit

Details

recycled cashmere is not as soft as regular cashmere - but will get softer over time!

Care

caring for wool

wool is actually a lot easier to take care of than you might think. usually it is enough to just hang it outside. wool will hardly ever smell. if you have stains on your wool items try hand washing them. you can use a natural shampoo - remember not to use hot water! wool can shrink easily. many washing machines offer a wool programme - be careful with these as many are too hot or too rough. the most important care instruction: lay flat to dry (on a towel on your hanger) so that the wool piece does not lose shape or stretch.

what is wool?

wool is a fibre from the fleece of an animal - sheep, goats, alpacas. there are even the first prototypes of dog wool on the market!

why love wool?

nothing is warmer on cold days than wool! also it is natural, biodegradable, renewable, breathable and durable. 

wool production

it is hard to find clear statistics on this topic. what is clear: wool uses less water than cotton in production. however, it also depends in what environment the animals are kept and how much water this uses. also wool has to be washed - depending on the dirt this takes a lot of water. here it really depends on where the wool comes from and how these animals were kept. since we work with small partners, we can assure our wool does not come from mass productions.

Production

this item has been sewn in braga, portugal by orfama
