What makes Merino wool sustainable?

What makes Merino wool sustainable?

Merino wool is an all-natural fibre, which makes it more environmentally friendly than lots of other options. Merino wool is:

Easily recyclable

Merino wool will break down into its component parts at the end of its life. It can even be composted!

From a renewable source

Created from the fleece of Merino sheep, Merino wool is a sustainable and renewable fibre

A durable fibre

Merino wool is naturally strong and long-lasting. Well-made Merino clothing is designed to have an extended lifespan.

Easy to care for

Merino needs washing infrequently and uses less water over its lifecycle. It also has the advantage of not releasing microplastics when washed.

All these factors help to make Merino wool a more ethical choice than synthetic alternatives. Choose Merino and feel good in all senses of the word.

How to recycle Merino wool.

When Merino wool garments come to the end of their lifespan (this is likely to take a while!), they can be easily recycled in a couple of ways. You can either take them to your local recycling facility or you can compost them.

Because Merino wool is biodegradable, it can be included with other compostable items. It is great for retaining water while also releasing nutrients to feed plants.
