What impact does your
sweater have?

Times have changed. Clothing that lasts forever is no longer a good thing. Plastic is not fantastic. Nature doesn’t know what to do with it.
When clothes made from merino fibers wear out, they break down to replenish the earth. A healthy ecosystem needs give and take. It’s time to invest in the future.
Move to natural.
