By nature, knitted garments are prone to pilling, and this style is no exception. Removing pills can help lengthen its life, plus it’s easy to do with a sweater stone. Learn about removing pills at wornwear.com.
For some people, wool fibers can cause skin sensitivity or itching. Wearing a light layer between your skin and the garment can help, and also reduce the need to wash it as often which will extend its life. Learn more about product care at www.patagonia.ca/product-care.html.
One of the ways we can lessen the impact of wool production is to recycle used wool.
The practice of recycling wool dates back hundreds of years. After wool sweaters had been worn threadbare, they were collected and shredded into individual fibers and then converted into blankets.
Patagonia’s recycled wool comes from this same process. Aided by modern-day quality controls, the wool goes through a meticulous sorting of materials into color categories prior to shredding. By selecting and blending colors of dyed wool fabrics and garments, we can completely eliminate the dyeing process, saving water and chemicals and eliminating the resulting wastewater.
Fair Trade Certified™
We pay a premium for every Fair Trade Certified item that carries our label. That extra money goes directly to the workers at the factory, and they decide how to spend it. The program also promotes worker health and safety and social and environmental compliance, and encourages dialog between workers and management.
