Details

wool is a naturally durable fiber and garments can stay in circulation for a relatively long period of time, reducing their environmental footprint. research has established that woolen products have the potential for several ‘lives’ over 20-30 years. wool is one of the world’s most suitable fibers for reuse, extending the lifetime of garments and helping the environment. choosing long-lasting, readily recyclable woolen garments over other options can reduce the quantity of textiles that ends up in landfill.

cotton is the preferred choice for customers due to its perfect mix of softness, strength, and flexibility. but what also makes cotton popular is the fact that it’s a sustainable choice, too. soft, light, and breathable, compared to other common clothing fibers, cotton has the advantage of being a completely natural product that doesn’t require an intensive chemical process in order to be transformed into fabric.

polyamide properties allow it to be a durable material, as well as resistant.
polyamide and polyamide fiber blend have a firm position in swimwear/beachwear because they are easy to care for and have good wear properties: it is light, strong, quick-drying, and easy to clean. we know polyamide means using plastic... well, plastic can be recycled, right? we try to find the good side in everything so in this garment, we can only suggest to use it well, do not wash it too much and please when you don't want to use it anymore find another life for it. it can be used to recycle fibers!

use of recycled fabrics have significant importance as it provides both environmental and economic benefits. choosing long-lasting, readily recyclable woolen garments over other options can reduce the quantity of textiles that ends up in landfill.
recycled polyamide is obtained by melting down existing plastic and re-spinning it into new fiber. By choosing recycled polyamides fabrics, the same technical performance is achieved as other similar fibers but leaving a lower environmental footprint.

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.
